Now I have raced 3 sti's in my life.
1.STI: catback, downpipe, mbc= 2 cars by 120mph
2.STI: downpipe, wastgate spring ? = about 2 cars maybe less by same mph.
3.Stock STI: 4 cars by 120 w/my stock intercooler
Heres my question. I placed some 100 octane in the car to see if it would boost performance. IT didnt so I was driving to get it all out last night. I put some good ole 93 in and tried to cypher all the 100 out. Late last night an STI wanted to run me. He looked all stock including his exhaust.
2 gear run: he pulls me and by 90 we are neck and neck w/me starting to pull but have to let off for traffic....Im now bewildered.
Now I want to run again in a clear area. He obliges.
1st gear run: I immediately pull but by 120mph he was at my back bumper which isn't that much of a kill. He claims it was totally stock....
IT might have been but Im not sure my car was running correctly also. It felt a little wierd but so be it. Im just wondering do you think he could have had. Can you use the utec w/out any supporting mods and what type of gains would he see ?
P.s: he was also a bit of a prik. "your lucky we dont race from a dig I would kill you..." end quote...I was like riiiiight....move on loser. Bad gas or not youve just been served...(sorry for the corny quote I just unfortunately saw that movie....)
