I'm the owner of a modded SRT-4 (Mopar Stage 1, 3 inch exhaust with High flow cat, Boost controller at 16psi high boost, 14psi for low boost, and a Perrin FMIC). I came accross a WRX tonight and we had a few good runs. All runs were from between 65-75mph punches. All resulted in the same results.. The WRX and I were nose to nose for a few seconds, then I slowly pulled away.
Now this is my question. This WRX seemed very fast to me, and sounded very mean. I pulled over an chatted with the driver for a minute and this was the result: Me, so what have you done to your wrx,, Him: Just an exhaust!. I then asked how much boost he's running, he said 16psi.
I asked if he ever ran an STI, and he said yes. He had a race with one on the road, his car was full of camping gear, and he pulled the STI pretty good.
OK, so this is my question to you WRX owners- Can a WRX with just an exhaust beat an STI????
I have never raced an STI or an EVO, this was my first run in with a WRX and for just having an exhaust on the car, I was impressed!!! But I personally feel there was more done to the car than I was told.
Can I get some inputs please???? thanks
