I see this WRX pulling onto Route 6 same time I do, and he nodded and asked if I wanted to run. I had a passenger in my car, and running 18 PSI. Idling at the light, his car sounds like crap. The engine is like fluctuating getting louder then lower, etc. Very deep, deep rumble, much different than my friend's WRX with a Turbo XS Stealth-back. 2 people so far told me that means he must have a nice new set of camshafts and most likely some more headwork and internal work done (because you just don't do cams, supposebly).
So the light turns green and it sounds like he dropped it at 6000 RPMs, his car just took off, skidding from side to side and it just been out. I had to baby first gear until 4000 RPMs when I gunned it then punched it into 2nd (which I get traction now) and I by the time I ended 2nd gear he was already an easy 5 cars ahead me. So he shut down because there was a car in my lane (or he knew I had no chance).
So we out in the open again and from a 35 mph roll (2nd gear), we go - and I get the jump on him until 3rd gear when he starts to pull on me and by the end of 4th gear he had 3 cars on me and still pulling hard. Now I can understand having trouble with a WRX from a light, but from a roll I thought I could do much better.
So I call my friends and ask them if they know what this kid has, and they say they know he has full exhaust like up-pipe, turbo-back exhaust, boost controller, but they don't know what else. Other people also say he HAS to have a bigger turbo like a VF34 + the internal work done like I mentioned before which made him idle like crap and uncontrolled. Since he races for money, nobody knows what he has in his car. So I'm saying, if I'm putting down about 260 to the wheels, how much does that make him?
Where is Stage 3 when I need it?
