    WRX (me) vs Ford Lightning modded?

    I was cruising today on highway when i see a red Ford lightning flying buy a couple lanes over. I have to get over anyway to get off the highway and onto another. (express way) When i notice he gets off same place I am. So we are in a pretty hefty turn. there is 2 cars between him and me. As well all start to merge he and i choose the same lane. I am pulling hard onto his bumber. (kinda testing water to see if i can hang) Waiting to get onto other highway. As we aproach next exit to highway we are together on ramp. He is about 4 or 5 cars ahead on ramp when i decide to start to pull in so he only is one car ahead when we start race. I stay in 2nd on ramp floor it have to change lanes in order not to hit him. That thing was fast! And it sounded real nice. It has guages in the driver door. (i think thats factory) But the exhaust / s/c were loud!
    After i passed him I slowed down because i have 16 points and dont like any more tickets i decided to end the race. I give him a big thumbs up. I really wanted to hold up 4 fingers just to gloat about my cyl, but kept it to my self . He flys by and goes on his merry way. Wow still a fun race cuz it lasted so long. Ruffly 4 minutes. Thats along time!

    even stage4 would have trouble coming from behind a lightning and then passing him on a roll... i am thinking a PE turbo or maybe a vf22 er something

    I pulled from a off a ramp Like i said i put her in 2nd at about 30 or 40. Floored it and pulled on him reached about early 4th around 100 maybe a little more. I am stage 3 set at 16.5 psi. . no tune... fouled spark plugs. was a red one if that helps

    thats even more odd.... u pulled on him when if 4th? thats the worst gear in the wrx... (im not calling you a liar at all, just saying its not typical that you pulled on him like that.)

    vf22 has much more top end than the vf30. its more of a top end turbo, but the draw back is pretty bad turbo lag.
    if im not mistaken the turbo thats next up in the top end over the vf22 is the pe series

    lag isn't that bad with a vf22. full boost by 3500 rpm by most people.

    It could of been an MHI turbo

    16 points! You still can drive with that many points? Seriously... that's a lot.
