I wanted to post my experience running an EVO that a friend of mine has. First, a little about the cars and the mods they have.
The EVO has an intake, O2 housing, downpipe, bigger FMIC, and a Greddy E-manage on it.
My WRX has a 3" turbo-back, up-pipe, APS intake, APS unichip (shelf map for club spec), Samco IC hoses, and a MBC set at 15.5psi. Everything else is stock.
Now onto the action!
Both races started from a roll so, there really was no driver error to be accounted for. We started at 55-60MPH.
I started in 3rd gear both times. On the first run, we both mashed the throttle about the same time and I pulled a half a car immediately. After that, I steadily put about 2 cars on him up to 105-110MPH. (I won't run faster than that on a public highway)
I couldn't believe it. I thought maybe I started before he did or something so we tried it again.
This time I gave it a little gas and let off to get my buddy to go first. The results, however, were the same. I pulled an immediate 1/2 a car and continued to pull about 2 cars on him before we shut it down.
I even talked to him after we got to our destination to make sure he was actually putting the pedal down and was running the boost he should of been. Everything was running as it should.
So, for now, WRX-2, EVO-0.
Props to Mark (the EVO owner) for being a good sport about it.
