That's a good start...Originally Posted by ScoobyBoy2
However, seeing a "stock" uppipe, doesn't mean it's not gutted and reinstalled. Seeing a "stock" turbo, doesn't mean it hasn't been blueprinted and worked over and put back in. There could also be significant weight removed from the car as well, which would help immensely. A car that can't go over 110 mph on the freeway, yet runs blisteringly fast through the 1/4 mile up to 104 mph also raises doubts. And hearing that it's got an ecutek tune, but runs rough also makes one wonder. An anti-lag device running on that "stock" turbo would make it sound really rough, seriously decrease the life of that turbo, but would make it way more responsive, and never fall off of full boost...
Shave 300 lbs off my WRX and insert a midget who can still see, powershift, and hit the gas and I think my setup would hit 12's and 104mph given perfect atmoshpheric conditions (resulting in a negative density altitude).
Intelligent and knowledgeable people are naturally skeptical and ask questions in order to learn. Ignorant people blindly believe what they are told.
