    WRX vs 3000GT TT

    Raced a coworker from about a 30MPH roll. He just got some new turbos on his car and was talking a bit of trash. So we went out to a straight piece of road. I dropped the 4EAT into 2nd and pulled about a car and kept it all the way up to about 90-100.

    His car has over 100k on it and a EBC. Hes trying to figure out how he lost but I think he needs proper EM and upgraded injectors/pump etc.

    None the less some fun runs.

    He must get his car tuned. The vr-4 is no slug. So he just got brand new stock turbo's?

    Will is right

    The VR-4 is no joke when tuned. The right set of bolt ons and they go flying into the 12s. If your buddy got 2 stock turbos, big deal. If he went out and got himself a pair of HKS units or larger snails, then you have a problem. You might want to consider a larger snail if you want to rattle him. (VF22 or better).

    There was a guy in Turbo magazine pulling 10s in a very tuned VR-4.
    If you can't run fairly from a dig, take your rolls back to the bakery.

    That must be a wheezing VR4. They need to hook up with their local 3S owners and get some tuning help.

    My Stealth was "only on the stock turbos" too...

    And to elaborate, it needs no EM at all. He needs to fix the leaks in the IC piping, including replacing the o-ring at the rear turbo outlet, also checking that infernal plastic Y pipe at the throttle body. He needs NGK copper plugs gapped at .028

    Rewire the stock fuel pump with larger wire and bypass the variable-voltage relay crap (all on my website) . Then set the boost to 17 psi.

    Buy a downpipe, ATR brand, for about $330. Keep the stock cat-back.

    Enjoy your 12.50s. Save money for a clutch - it'll need one of those right after these mods.

    One of my best friends from school has a '94 VR4 and I f'in love that car. Of course it's been in the shop for a good 2 years (no joke) going through all sorts of hell with the turbo set-up, but when it's done I can't wait to drive it.

    No he got some aftermarket turbos that are supposed to be badass.

    He says that went he floors it the boost goes to 12 then down to 9 back to 12 down to 9 type of thing. We both knew it going into the race.

    Im getting 17.5-18 out of my 34.
