    Nice, I had a 94z28 and it would have been easily beaten by a well driven STi.

    Just beware of the more heavily modded ones (and well maintained). I met a guy at the track with a very stock looking LT1 z28. With gears, converter, bolt ons, and a cam, he was running 12.6s in the 1/4 mile.

    I ran a white camaro that followed me home tonite (jeez, the weather gets warmer and you find them everywhere!). His window's tint was too dark so I just threw a small rev at him at the stop light and he threw one right back. His must've not gotten traction because I pull buslengths on him. Did a couple from a roll and I pulled about 2 car lengths. He pulled once on me because I was in the wrong gear (4th going 40ish. DUH) but he couldn't pull away.

    I can say with confidence that the STi in stock form is AS quick if not quicker than a stock or lightly modified camaro. Or I'm a very good driver. I give credit to the STi. I LUV MY SUBY!!

    I don't know this guy claims he runs even with LS1s.

    I'm just stage 2 and pulled an LS1 on the highway pretty hard. went from about 60 to 100 and I was about 2 cars ahead by shutting down.

    now....if an LS1 starts modding....we're screwed.

    I did the same in my STi.. I was also a stage 2 at the time and I pulled on an LS1 Z28 hard from a 60mph roll. I had 2-3 cars by 110mph. I did it 2 times in a row. I was actually pretty suprised to pull that hard on an LS1 from a roll. Stage 2 really gives an STi a lot more top end speed.
