    my wrx vs turbo civic hatch

    so i'm sitting at home and my friend calls me asking me if i would wanna race his friend with a turbo hatch..guy has a built ls engine in a hatch with a drag 3 kit t3/t4 setup i guess..and that night i didn't feel like racing so i said no...he asked if anyone else wanted to race...well a guy from this forum..i wont name any names with a silver rex raced him off a roll from like 20-80...this guy got own3d pretty bad...hatch took the rex by 3 cars and still pulling at 80....all rex has is injen cai and hks carbon ti catback..no dp or uppipe yet...so i decided i might as well give it a try..so i meet up with the guy 2night with my friends sick gti and my rex...this guy rolls in with like 3 cars...than even more show up..i dont like the idea of a bunch of cars..so we finally get rid of everybody..we go on some rolls.my friend beat him first with his gti....but this gti is sick..as in it takes m3's/vettes on freeway..big ass turbo upgrade.....so i go with him..his expecting 2 beat me since he just schooled the other rex..we do a couple of rolls 1st gear at 20..i pull 3-4 and am pulling hard but he misshifts so we stop...i do it again at 20..same results....we go at 40 2nd gear..i take him even worst....than he wants to go lower speeds..so i go 30 in 2nd gear...i still pull like 4-5 cars by 90 ..and i shut off...guy was dissapointed since he rocked another rex night b4....had 2 represent for the subarus!!


    EDIT..HUGE EDIT..i didnt mean ls1 lmao..i meant ls integra engine in a hatch that weighs 2200 lb..turboed with drag kit...sorry guys

    I'm curious too. Sounds like a turbo upgrade if you beat the civic by 2-3 cars and the civic beat the stock-ish wrx by 2-3 cars. So it sounds like your car will pull 4-5 cars on a stock wrx... that's some pretty good power.

    Have you raced your friend's gti? maybe from a stop it would even out the HP he's got over you

    thanks guys..i'm gonna try 2 get the video up of the race...one of them atleast..i went out there expecting a good race but i smoked him...i got a mbc...when i race i boost 15/16 psi..i got CAI aem i'm dying to get rid of and downpipe/uppipe...guys its not funny but stock wrx is really bad off a roll..also throw in some driver error..guy who lost hasnt had his car for too long...and people who have had a ride in my car thinks its a lot faster than the silver rex which is basically stock ..only hks catback..carbon ti..


    its funny this thread is about my car but everyone wants 2 know about gti haha....okay that gti is KILLER...as in dont mess with it...his actually on this forum gt30rgti....his car is very sick..vette on highway ...m3 on highway no problem...he was toying with a 350z once on da freeway i was following trying 2 keep up...his car has a gt30r turbo in their ..catless ...very sick car...no traction haha....and i've messed around with it off a roll...at only 10 psi he pulls hard on me..and oh yeah btw.....he boosts over 20psi at most occasions..his planning on boosting 29psi....hasnt been dynoed yet but it soon will be..trying to get a group dyno..i wanna dyno my car too ..i'll let you guys know...but were thinking his car should have close to 400whp...its definitely a 11 second car...but running it at a track isn't very smart with all that power and stock axels...i'll update you guys as things happen with that car its sick..its also gonna be in import tuner soon



    EDIT ...sorry guys..hatch has ls integra engine turboed...i messed up when i first posted

    with only those mods on your rex, i'm surprised that you were able to pull on that built ls turboed hatch from a roll by 2-3 cars. that hatch probably need a lot more tuning because it should have taken you from a roll with no sweat. nice kill nonetheless...

    Hey guys, im the Silver Rex AwdTurboWrx is talking about. I raced him about 2 days ago, the first run he had me by 2 car lenghts and was pulling. Second he had me by a little less than a car length but was pulling.

    I am pretty much stock, since exhaust is connected to my stock cat. Waiting up on a Turbo XS Uppipe and a Cobb Downpipe, and I will be catless. Cobb Re-flash with AccessPort is also in about 4 weeks (when I get my pipes installed). I'll do another run with the Turbo Hatch, but I should have no problem beating it this time.

    the civic should have made up ground near the end of the race if not pulled on YOU
