Do you mean FWD (front wheel drive) or AWD (all wheel drive)? I think the WRX looses between 23- 26% at the wheels, where as the FWD vehicle might loose 12- 15%.
As far as the SRT4 goes, keep in mind that Dodge wasn't using Dynojets to come up with those HP ratings. The Dyno jet dynos are notorious for reading high... I think Vishnu Performance (aka Shiv) has some more acurate data if I'm not mistaken.
