Fair enough - I apologized already for assuming that this was a 5MT WRX we were talking about. Also, i was not aware that you had mods. My buddy has intake/exhaust and it certainly seems a bit faster than a stock E36 M3.Originally posted by BLITZ's M
I think if you re-read my post's you will see that I know a WRX, stock, or otherwise will out launch an E36 M3 9 out of 10 times. All I was saying is BS that he ran a 13.3 in an automatic WRX, and that the other got lucky because the M3 guy either was not racing, or did not know how to drive his car.
I see that you thought we were discussing manual trannies, but I still do not agree with what you say about M3's vs. WRX's. Now speaking solely form experience, I am telling you that I have been out launched by a few WRX's but have come back to over take them over 70 - 80 mph. I am also not stock either so that does make a difference.
He's going to get the power programmer next from Bavarian Autosport. Do you have any experience with that programmer?
And yes, the top end of the M3's are flat out sick. Not having O/D in 5th sure helps you guys out
