    Question **My new stage 4 setup VS stock EVO... HOW SHOULD I DO?!?!?**

    UTEC
    FP18G turbo
    PE 650cc injectors
    Walbro fuel pump
    Hyperflow FMIC
    XX-Tuning header & uppipe
    Helix 3" turbo-back
    Perrin short ram
    TurboSmart plumb-back BOV

    ~310-315 whp @ 20 psi
    ~340-350 whp @ 25 psi

    I don't think I'll be running the high boost map all that much due to the problem with 13secwrx's car, but how will my car do against a stock EVO, or even an EVO w/ a few mods (exhaust etc.)?

    You should pretty much walk away from him if he's stock or lightly modded.

    if you are tuned fairly well, and can drive you will walk away from him in any gear or any speed. You should easily be in the 12's now. Even an evo with full exhaust and increased boost would have trouble hanging with you... especially on the top end...

    good work

    I'm just afraid that after putting all this $$$ into my car it will not be "fast enough" thats all. My sole purpose for the time being is to be able to beat my buddy's integra. It's got the motor internals built up, a full Greddy Drag kit, AEM ems, etc. and is a fairly light car. He is supposedly making ~300 whp. I saw a dyno chart from when it was on a $hitty tune @ 255 whp. He has no LSD and claims he can spank me......

    Trust me.... It won't be fast enough.... You will enjoy the power for a week or two, then you will race a dencently quick car. You will win, but you will feel as if you didn't beat him as ruthlessly as you would have hoped....Then the seeds of doubt will start to sprout in your head, and start you second guessing yourself as to whether you shouldn't have gone with a bigger snail in the first place...

    I think I might be needing to hook up an SR71 blackbird engine to the side of my wrx soon.. It never ends...

    I just found out my buddy with an EVO is talkin s#it. He's saying that he'll wup my a$$ and that my car won't be all that fast! Guess he does't know what the 18G can do. By the time my car is out of the shop, he will have an intake, injectors and a turbo-back exhaust. I'm not sure if he's getting engine management.....?

    He better have engine management if he's going to be running intake, injectors and turbo-back exhaust.

    it'll never be fast enough, look at 75% of the people on here who cannot quit doing things to make their sub's faster, do you think you'll be any different.

    I wouldn't worry about the teg, but I would about the EVO if they get engine mgmt, and I disagree about the top end argument, your engine doesn't breathe like the mitsu's on the top end. They're also geared very well. You just gotta keep in mind that you're not always the fastest thing on the street, even though we'd like to be.

    Seems like your already second guessing the current setup you're going with...evo's are fast and easily get into the 12's. It's not too late to cancel the appt and put that money toward a new evo.

    You can stay w/ an evo that has:

    engine mgment
    turbo back exhaust
    intake
    272 cams
    bigger intercooler

    I ran neck and neck w/an evo w/those mods...it was even to 150 mph...

    anything more then that and your toast for now. That was on my 21 lb map soo...the race map wouldve taken him for sure. Good luck w/the project...Let me know when its time for your new engine.

    I don't know what you're talking about...I mean look at Midknight, he did some bolt ons and then stopped. Same deal with 13secwrx, a few light mods here and there and then just leave the car as is
