From a roll, you should beat any stock boosted wrx, maybe even a few boosted ones. However from a dead stop, you must launch perfectly to beat a stock wrx with a good driver (before you reach arrest-me speed limits).
I will always have love for foxbody mustangs. The aftermarket possibilites are endless. Such a good sounding motor too (with flowmaster of course). Im considering looking for a 87-90 notchback myself... just so i can do burnouts and childhood memory raising experiences. The first car i learned stick on, was a 90 LX hatch with 4.10 gears, headers, flowmaster and nitto drag radials... man that thing scooted, i was addicted to the sound before i even got out of the car.
i gotta give props to all of the wrx owners i have met so far, you guys really seem to have an open mind for domestic's. alot of the honda crowd is so "pro import" that they just hate mustangs and such
i must say that if i could afford a wrx i would own one for sure
