    COBB 2 Vs. 350 Z

    Ran into one last night on my way home.

    I am not sure if it was an auto or not or if the guy was giving it 100%....

    I had a couple of runs....the type of "this guys is next to me...let me downshift.....wait he is keeping up....gun it...."

    Speeds reached triple digits and we played for about 5 miles. He never got ahead of me, but I never pulled away either....

    Now I am intrigued....WAS THIS GUY TOYING WITH ME!!!!!!!!

    After getting of the highway, I told him that his Z was nicer than my REX (which it is.....black) and he told me that my car was fast....



    .
    My car sounds like a LIGER.......ERZ + SPT = LOUD......pretty much one of my favorite sounds.....

    cobb stage 2 should be able to keep up with a stock 350z from a roll and kill it from a dig.

    This might be way off but If I had to guess I would say right around 300-310

    From a roll only. A stage 2 wrx will not hit a low 13/high 12 like a stock STi will.

    Massive torque and excellent gearing give the STi the edge from a dig.

    Yo

    A Stage 2 WRX is slower than a stock STI; it's not a drivers race but a car issue. My old 2002 WRX Stage 2.5 was at 220whp and I was still slower than a stock STI. I love my STI now and can't wait to justify a TBE and EcuTek.
    2004 STI White/Gold
    251whp & 263ft/lbs ( Stock ): 0-60 = 4.8 ( Fastest = 4.1 ) & 1/4 = ?
    276whp & 290ft/lbs ( DP ): 0-60 = 4.5 & 1/4 = 12.9 @ 105mph

    More like 360. Our trannies are around a 22% drivetrain loss.

    But dyno readings are all relative. Depends on what dyno you get on. Dynojets will read about 8-12% higher than mustangs which tend to give a more accurate number.

    My stage 2 wrx hung dead even with a stock STi. Stock STi's put down about 230.


    Edit: holy crap...I just looked at your numbers versus mine. I'm exactly 40 hp and 40 lbs torque above you. What dyno did you use?

    the ap i believe will make a huge difference.all i have on my wrx is a turboback exhaust(ap coming next week) and my friend has a stage 1 sti, we raced the other night for fun, from a roll, it ate me up(duh) but from the launch, im a better driver than him(hes not that bad) and i got a perfect launch and his was decent pulled a car on him and stayed on him till we hit third then he started slowly pullling on me. alot of you guys need to realize that there is alot of factors besides numbers that come into racing, im sure alot of you dont even race just talk about stuff you hear from other people. my friend with the sti told me that i would have taken him stock and we got another guy with a STOCK evo that im gonna race next week when i get my ap, i'll let u guys know how it goes, personally ive never raced a 350z but i beat up on the only 2 g35 i raced(not killed them) just controlled them nicely. SO in conclusion, you guys think or say what you want, but trust me, its a whole different story when it actually happens
