    WRX vs. GTP

    hey im new here and i dont yet have a WRX but i am 5000 away from my goal to get a wrx. My friend has a 99 grand Prix GTP with only a supercharger pulley upgrade. that puts it at around 260 hp. How close would we be in a 1/4 race and maybe longer. thanks!!

    p.s. these forums are great

    Fear the GTP! It would probably be somewhat close.

    The new GTP's are pretty cool. I have heard about the WRX and the GTP being pretty close in 1/4 mile times.

    Sedan or coupe? Sedan weighs 3414lbs, coupe weighs 3396lbs. WRX (not STi) weighs 3100lbs. Probably a boost controller and a turbo-back exhaust would take care of the GTP.

    ill be the first to say it.. theres a WRX VS. the world section in these forums, so any racing related type stuff goes there.

    and welcome to the club....

    GTP is a high 14sec car stock, or low 15's with not so great tires.

    the wrx is a faster car in the 1/4 mile being a low - mid 14sec car.
    his pulley is going to make him good for 14.5-14.7 (give or take a tenth). your CAR is still faster, but depending on your driving it could be very close, because wrx's run mid 14's more so than low 14's. I would say you could edge him out, but make sure you practice your launches. without your launch, you really dont have anything on him. they have lots of torque so he will keep up decently from the line, but from my experience they tend to die down around 60mph and only get worse the faster they go.

    if you want a little extra security, get an uppipe and MBC and then he should be a problem at all, and thats >$300 in mods.

    My friend has a GTP with pully, catback, down pipe, plugs, wires, ecu, fuel computer, cam.....and a couple other things, it should be able to put down some good numbers this summer.

    I raced him when he had a pully, cat back, down pipe, plugs and wires and i have a mbc set to 15psi and i could pull very little on him on the highway and at the track we lined up 3 times and it was over before the 60' mark My 13.55-13.65 to his 13.70-13.80.

    But this summer it's gonna be fast and i'll probably be no match for it .

    WRX vs. GTP

    If the 3.4 pulley is his only mod he's not going to do much better than stock. He doesn't have the supporting mods for it so he might gain a small amount of torque in the lower rpm's.

    He'll be getting a load of knock retard up top so I think you should be able to take him.

    FYI I went 14.2 with k&n, plugs, 3.4 pulley.

    I've beat gtp's with chip, pulley and exhaust when I was stock, but only up to like 70 then i shut down and i had a car or so on him. In a full quarter it would have been close, he probably would have won.
