    Hey Chu...its Ryan. I finally registered for this board. Good job with the race and if that M3 ever wants to race past 75 mph then either me or Mike will race him. Mike has the VF22, sti inj, fuel pump, blitz fmic, and unichip and i should have the TXS stage 4 in the next 4-5 wks. I am curious if that will beat/keep up with a E46 M3 past 75 mph. Later.

    WRXed,

    "stock turbo" as in no turbocharger upgrade.

    Thanks, my only problem is, I'll be sad when I hit 13.5, because I said I would stop modding when I hit it, and I really want to do exhaust too. Maybe I'll stop after the exhaust instead. I think I'm being pretty good since I'm probably going to put off wheels and tires until next summer. My WRX is more than a hobbie, it's an addiction!

    BTW Jim, good luck on the 13.5 goal...I'm sure you'll hit it!

    Funny how in our haste to read, we miss words...important ones at that. DOH!

    Yeah, sure you'll stop after the exhaust...sure you will

    Haha ...

    Actually Clark we did do 80mph once and that's when you had already started to slowly pull away. I have some WRX guys who would like to go w/ you on the "HWY" at higher speeds. They can do it because I won't. I really do appreciate your time yesterday.

    This is a great thread. I love to hear about it from both sides.

    **Counting the minutes till the BMW worshippers tell us how yet another WRX could not possibly have kept up with or beaten an M3 because..... well, because it's a BMW M3. **

    Nice job keeping it in check at 80 mph, Chu.

    DAMN Ryan! So you decided to go with the vf30? You are gonna have one CRAZY setup. I'm still indecisive on whether I want to go with N2O or save up a little more and get a larger turbo later. ~$1000-1200 (kit, purge, heater, fp, bottle opener,...maybe an adj. fpr) vs. ~$1800-2200(turbo, inj, fp,...even more to dyno tune at txs).

    When did mike get his fmic? I passed by his car last week (parked in front of publix on peachtree) and didn't see it...

    Take care.

    James - I'm 75% sure I want the VF30 cuz thats what the TXS crew has been testing and says is the best turbo. I may change my mind but as of today that is the turbo I want.

    Mike is the manager at that Publix on Peachtree. He just ordered his fmic, inj, and fuel pump and we will throw it on as soon as it gets here. Also, he got the Greddy fmic from Irvine Subaru not the blitz...i dont know why i said blitz. He also just sent his unichip back yesterday to get a new map for his new goodies. He should be real fast real soon.

    Idiots ...

    So I was coming fome from renting a movie after work today. I leave Blockbuster on Johnsons Ferry & Lower Roswell and heading back home on Johnsons Ferry passing the Baptist church. A old Cherokee on the side of the road and merges onto Johnsons Ferry. I get in the left turning lane for Woodlawn and the Cherokee pulls right next to me at the red light. I have my windows rolled down as usual and I hear this slight engine wine ... I'm thinking to myself ... umm what's that so I just ignore it. Then I hear it again and I can hear someone playing w/ their transmission by shifting it into neutral from drive or something like that. So I look over at they're these 2 punk high school teens looking at me revving . I glance at the driver, smile, and shook my head and smiled ( Basically saying ... ummm idiots at 3 o clock! ). Light turns green and they stop revving, then shift to drive, then "try" to peal out. :lol: I just sat there laughing at their ignorance. I never once thw whole time even rev my engine back. I just thought it was funny. WRX, S2000, Supra, and M3 ... they're so much more fun :devil: even if the M3 & Supra would smoke me in 3rd. It's all fun and games.

    Race the M3 in the WET.... and see who'll win by 15 cars!!

    Tonite in my S15 Silvia, I was giving it a bit too much in 2nd, and started fishtailing...... RWD = w(R)ong Wheel Drive in the wet....



    But to those ppl who are smiling in their dreams that our little pissy turbo cars can beat an $$$ M3, I think you might find that your stock turbo + engine combination won't last you anywhere near 10 years whereas the M3 would still like new!!

    When we bought turbo, we knew the consequences...

    But of course, who's going to keep their cars for 10 years anyway!!

    You guys crack me up... Racing in the wet. You stop light racer's need to come join me at the track one day... Especially those who believe Euro car owners never push their cars- Ever think maybe they just don't like to race on the street???? I couldn't imagine what a stock E36 M3 could do to that 16psi turbo I ran with @ Road Atlanta...

    I'll be at Roebling Road July 3rd and back at Atlanta Motor Speedway Aug 3rd and 4th. I did see one guy from Atlanta in a WRX out at the track, but he had a bad day... Hope he was alright..

    I have been on both the track and autocrosses with M3s. From what I've seen, the older M3s do better on the track, and the new ones do better on the autocross because of their active rear diffs. But it's mostly up to the driver. I took a ride in my instructor's mid-90s Integra GSR and he had no trouble keeping up with M3s of any year outside of the straight (Lime Rock Park, CT). All the M3s were a bit faster after 90 mph than I, and especially the older ones cornered better than my stock WRX suspension. I didn't have a problem keeping up with the new M3 in the twisties though. They do say the suspension's mushier. I dunno, never drove one.

    As for racing in the wet...... I drive up from NYC to my parents' in Buffalo all the time. When there are snowstorms, I always see at least one overzealous or impatient RWD BMW on the side of the road facing the wrong way after a 180 spinout. In the winters, anyone with a BMW in western NY drives around with cheap black steel rims with snow tires. They do pretty well with snow tires on. But otherwise, it pays to go slow.
