    That is the fastest in the country. Its wickedwrxwagon on the i-club. He's got headers, nos, just upgraded this week from vf23 to vf30 and also just installed an s-afc so look for that time to get even faster.

    I love the fact that it's a wagon. I just think that is so cool when a wagon can put up numbers like that. Kinda messes with your head!

    Argh, I really don't like the external stuff they did to the car. If they use the money for performance instead of making the car ugly, they will be much faster now. Lol.

    dr-- he is using stock internals, but not the stock turbo on his setup. i was surprised though to read that he is using the factory computer as well as stock fuel pump and injectors. i'd think these should be the obvious next steps to take, and that they would be able to get a lot more out of the bigger turbo that way.

    You are thinking of BYBYV8. He used stock turbo + nos to break Nathans record originally...which has been surpassed by this wagon....

    Don't forget, they made the interior ugly, too:

    Do us all a favor: work on learning how to drive your car before adding more power. Pretty please.

    TurboXS's car has the power to run 11s... they ran a 12.4@118 a couple of fridays ago... I would like to have seen that run!! That trap speed is good for a very deep 11 second run, especially for a WRX!!

    def

    BTW- I think that interior picture is taken out of context.... as in it probably looks much better with the rest of the car when in person.... I like the car alot... a couple of their pics almost make it look like a GC8.... I like the plexiglass scoop replacement too...

    At least he has the power to back up the looks unlike most imports. I kinda dig the plexiglass piece in place of the hood scoop too.

    I think the fastest WRX right now is Evolution Racing's WRX with the DSM FP Green. It runs like 7.6-7.7 1/8th mile runs but they don't have a 1/4 track nearby. That equates to probably mid 11s on a 1/4 track. Other than that, Cobb's project conebasher car with the 2.5L block or AV Sports ProRally car are probably faster, but those aren't street cars persay. Check out the power curve on the conebasher car (at the wheels):

    The Driver's Image car will get quickly surpassed I think. They are running .1 sec faster than a guy on a stock turbo with N20.

    come on, you see that rear wing on that thing? I also functions as a nice towel rack. LMAO@it....

    That is what it looks like from the back in that one picture.

    Cobb tuning, www.cobbtuning.com, is working on a 9 second GC8. That's with the use of nitrous.
