    Who in their right mind would actually spend hard earned dollars on a POS KIA anyways. They actually make after market products for the crap. What is the world coming to. Next you'll find out the make turbo chargers for a YUGO.

    No way a Kia could ever beat a WRX. Now, Kia vs RSX-S might be a close race... with the edge going to the Kia (RSX has no torque which is necessary for being fast)!

    Now be civil. Kias are not bad cars. MY point being that a Kia with only a intake and exhaust will not come close to the power of a WRX. Kias rank up there in the same class as Honda Civics and cars like that. People make plenty of civics go fast, just with more work than this guy claimed.

    It's my belief that every car has SOMETHING good about it. If you come from a low-income family and all you can afford is a Kia, then it's the greatest car in the world. Now, trying to make a Kia into a race car is a different story...I'd have to agree with you there...that's just not what you buy a Kia for. Then again, the same argument could be said for Civics too, but I'm not going to get into that

    Don't you get tired of posting the same thing over and over? Why not do everyone a favor and get a job at Subaru, so you can get paid to brown nose. Then you can buy your WRX and maybe stop the idiotic posts.

    Well, let me tell you...I just graduated from a Kia Sephia to my WRX. Talk about an upgrade. I don't think a Kia engine could take ANY increase in hp or tq. Anything over 70 mph is just plain scary in that car. Can you even imagine the torque steer on bumping the 125hp up to 175hp. Forget it. The WRX driver was just laughing at this Kia driver trying to race him. The only way the Kia driver could win is if he puts one of those monsterous indy spoiler on the rear and added some lighted window washer nozzles. Speaking of WRX vs. Kia, check out this link:[http://www.hwysafety.org/vehicle_rat...tml/0126.htm#5[/URL] (Check out the "Photo" link in the blue "Compare" box in lower left corner of link).

    Us WRXers are fast AND safe.

    just a weird thought since I just got done with my exame and my brain is totally mal-functin.
    as much as we make fun of KIAs and their mods, maybe somewhere else like ferrari, porsche and Lambo.diablo forums are making fun of us modding our WRXs, hm who knows.
    my car is slow,,,,,, very slow.

    Actually, he is full of sh1t. They delete posts for some reason over there, but if you try to reply, you can view the deleted posts. Here is what he had to say about his timeslip when someone called BS.

    Hey, no I don't live in Texas but my buddy with an Turbo Acura does. That is his timeslip but I beat him, from a roll when he came to Califormia to visit. So I ama t least that fast. LATER

    Needless to say, he lost any bit of respect he had on that site.
