theres a guy on our r32 forums at vwvortex that ran his car last night with just a cai and giac flash and hit a 13.48 @ ~101mph, and he believes he could easily be able to hit 13.3 with a bit more practice. what do you all think? i personally think that the r32 is given a bad name and bad critics, though it has a good amount of potential. i mean $600 worth of mods will get the r32 in the mid 13's, if not a bit better.
btw, what will a stick wrx with a reflash and cai do? it should be right there right? anybody know of any numbers that the wrx puts out with these mods? without exhaust modification?
my brother raced an e46 m3 yesterday and had him a couple of car lengths to about 60mph, at that point the m3 started to catch up but still behind. All he has done to his car is uppipe, downpipe, catback, boost controller @16.5psi, grounding. He raced a zr1 corvette that runs at the track 13.1 and they ran again from a stop and he was 2 cars in front again to about 70mph before the zr1 started catching up. im dumbfounded because both these cars run low 13's and my brother is automatic and i wouldnt expect anything better than maybe high 13's with a great break torque launch. maybe his car is a freak. for some odd reason, he can break torque to 4000rpms without even a high stall torque converter.
