    Also, under 11.5 you'll have to get a roll cage which is very costly.
    how wide spread is time attack?

    That was from Grimmspeed's site, but I didn't notice that it didn't include the price of the EWG it's self in that ad

    Sinister, AEM's intakes are actually very good. The ones they've been selling for the last 4 years or so at least.

    k.. i have 2 liter running 12.7.. and if im not mistaken the 2.5 is more power? better for quarter mile... i have no where near the amount of mods you're telling him to buy.... total in mods ive spent only $720 and ran that..... so with him having more base power id say a TMIC.. not front mount too much loss of boost from what ive seen on my friends 06. exhaust. 20g and a good tune and really ideal conditions would pu you to the high 11's with a really really good pass.. but id venture to say thats more likely to be a lower 12..

    12s sounds good.

    Dude theres this thing called reliability.
    I would much rather spend a few more dollars and make my car reliable and solid as I can rather then just bolt on a bigger turbo and mess with my fuel system and having at it.
    Turbos are like playing russian roulette with your engine- especially at high boost levels.

    ohh and sinister, if I could have afforded the STi I would have bought one.

    I could't find one that I could afford.
    So I got my WRX non STi.

    the 2.5's are stronger than the 2.0's... im pushing 18 psi no problems... if ur aiming for 12's then it will be easy... 11's will be a bit harder.

    I still dispute your setup. You must have mods that you don't know about, including turbo an injectors. 18 psi on a VFxx will get your trap speeds and time, on a TD04 with an aggressive 18 psi map, not humanly possible. Again, your track results are what cars with far more mods and far more aggressive tuning will get on a perfect run.

    Erm actually no their not. The old 2.0s came with better internals. The new 2.5s have weaker pistons, from what I have read the new 2.5 will crap out faster under boost then the stock 2.0

    2.5s will consistantly hold more power than 2.0s.

    2.0s start increasingly being affected by power over ~315 whp, while a 2.5 will at about 350. The rods in the 2.0L are only good for 375 while STI ones will hold closer to 500.
