    Couple STi questions...

    1. Is it safe to put E85 in our subbies? A friend told its like 100-105 octane and reasonably cheap. He told me to ask the experts(you guys) to see if Whit3 lightning (my car) can handle it.

    2. Whats the top end limit on the 06 STi? I was going 142 today before I had to stop for traffic and she looked like she had so much more to go. If the limiter is infact set to 145 or whatever, does using my accessport (datalogger +real-time tuning) by Cobb Tuning bypass it? Or does it only override on certain profiles?

    thanks!

    1. Do *NOT* use E85 in a turbo car
    2. The WRX is drag limited to 150mph, the STI is the same shape so it should be the same limit.

    ok ok in today's "controlled" environment I got upto 157 before I had to brake, so that throws out the 150mph limit.

    What exactly was your "controlled" environment? Did you have to brake for traffic this time?

    Again driving that fast (except on a closed course) will either land you in jail or the morgue, but to answer your question:

    The Cobb AP raises the top speed limiter to 186MPH. No I do not know anyone who has gone that fast please dont try unless you are in the correct environment to do so. Super Speedway, airport runway and the like.

    This statement essentially proves the opposite of what you are attempting to state: that the drag limit on a WRX is around 150 mph.

    Our cars have to be adapted to use pure E85. There are people here that know the details, but I don't think you should try to run it in an unaltered WRX/STI.

    2. Whats the top end limit on the 06 STi? I was going 142 today before I had to stop for traffic and she looked like she had so much more to go. If the limiter is infact set to 145 or whatever, does using my accessport (datalogger +real-time tuning) by Cobb Tuning bypass it? Or does it only override on certain profiles?
    You're foolish to go this fast on public roads. Please have some consideration for those that share the road with you; if you lose control, or fail to see something in the road in time at that speed, you're very likely to be responsible for the death of another motorist. You really don't want to have to live with knowing that your lack of sense resulted in someone's father/mother/son/daughter being killed or seriously hurt.

    you sound like another turd kid that talks game online but acutally drives his dadscars and flies 200 feet off the end of private runway and splatters his freinds brains all over the upper branches of walnut tree... you shouldn't even care what the top speed is casue you should never see it unless you are a race car driver. and if you had to "slow down for traffic" you were being very irresponsible and if you cause an accident that anyone i know is in... you will recieve 76 unlubercated pineapples into your rectum.

    if i knew anyone who ever drove 150+ mph on public roads i'd slash their tires
