Do you really not know the answer to this? :eek:

IMO, I would have to say that the 350z would take you without breaking a sweat.

300+hp vs 227hp?

I'd say that's a safe bet ;)

I have 06 350Z and had an 05 WRX. The Z will win most likely. The Auto isn't that much slower than the manual and it will reduce the chance of driver error.

+1

I have a 05 350Z and a 2002 WRX.

stock wrx - lose
stage 1 wrx - lose
stage 2 wrx - drivers race (WRX from a dig, 350Z from a roll)

Well you could also create a snowy drag strip somewhere, or have some sort of cargo/passenger capacity contest. :tongue:

to which he could counter:

mine love me
mine aren't poor
Uck-Fay, Ou-Yay

Avoid that - save some dough, and pick up an uppipe, downpipe, and Engine Management - at Stage 2, you'll have a solid chance.

If you simply can't wait - WEIGHT REDUCTION. No people in the car with you, get all the crap out of it. Empty Trunk and Glovebox, 100 pounds is equal to 10 horsepower or a tenth of a second in the quarter mile.

Well you are at stage 2. The OP was asking stock for stock.

They're built tough as hell. Very solid cars. Drivetrain can take quite a bit from the stock power output. They don't last under much boost for long, and as a result, most kits run low boost. I just don't think they are worth modding because it requires a built block to do it right. My WRX has roughly $27k invested in mods at this point, but a large chunk of that is labor and shipping. Also, I've never had to build the engine. The biggest expense so far has been the transmission. If I could start over, I might have just put the money into the 350Z. The APS Extreme Kit would be mine.

The 07' Z's are using the new HR motor which is considerably more stout. They are producing mid 13's and 105mph traps on a rather consistant basis. The 07' Z is more a match for a stock STI and I can't see an OTS stage2 beating one unless it was a short sprint form a dig.

So watch out for those newer ones ;)

i agreeeeeeeeee. I ve got the HR '07, and i have run it couple of times with sti's, from a dig the Z will fall behind probably a 1/2 to 1 CL(and if the Z driver is good by 3rd gear dhould be reaching up the STi), but from a roll, the STI losses. and the top end of the Z is great, i love it. WRX will lose
