    The problem with your logic is that 260Awhp incorporates friction and inertial losses at 4 wheels. 260Fwhp only incorporates friction and inertial losses at 2 wheels. The car with 260Fwhp still has to overcome friction and inertial losses at the rear wheels. All other things being equal, 260Awhp>260Fwhp.

    Of course, it is rare that all other things are equal. For example, an SRT-4 is lighter than a WRX so that could be a very significant offsetting factor.

    Wow. Thanks a lot guys for all your posts. I'm really learning a lot about WRX's. When he pulled on me from a roll, it was about 50 mph before he started to pass me, and he was pulling like a car every 20 mph or so.

    So it's a given that he had a bigger turbo? I don't know how much power you can get out of the stock turbo, and I also didn't see a FMIC. It could've been hidden or something though. I'll get a better look at his car today since he works at the Mall around here.

    Also, someone else told me the fluctuating idle is because of the exhaust with no cats at all, and he didn't have an atmospheric BOV.

    Lol. Oh no doubt. I respect cars for what they are, and give respect where respect is due, no matter what the circumstances. I love WRXs, Evos, STi's, Japanese cars, American muslce, European styling, etc.

    This WRX just blew my mind. Maybe I can get my friend with a 500 hp Turbo GTi to race him and if he wins then the kid with the WRX has to tell us what he has. Lol.

    I posted the same thing over at Nasioc.com and they're acting much like 9 year olds. This forum rules.
    That old eh?

    It's cool to see someone admit to defeat. Don't feel bad though you will get your revenge on a stock or lightly modded WRX (like mine) fairly easily with your setup.

    Oh yeah definately. Right after it happened, my friend went home to get his 03 WRX w/ Turbo XS Stealth-back Exhaust and I ate him up from a roll and a stop.

    It's funny though, because the WRX that I raced before (that killed me), said he only had exhaust. So that's obviously untrue.

    With your setup, your car should be good for 105+mph trap speed. If he pulled you that hard, his car must be well tuned stage 4 car trapping 108-110mph+.
