I used to have an 00 GTS but sold it a few weeks ago for a STI :) I can't deny that I've been having way more fun! :D

Anyway, last night was pretty interesting. Four races vs two different Evos.

The first one:
2006 Evolution MR (HKS intake, HKS exhaust) my friend's car
2005 WRX STI (bone stock) me

Launched from a stop around 5k rpm with DCCD in AUTO, smoked him no problem. 2nd race, same result. :) Fun times.


Second one:
2006 Evolution IX (5spd version, some kind of exhaust system) some dude I met
2005 WRX STI (bone stock) me

Rolling start around 30mph ish. He had a faster reaction this one mostly because his buddy was doing the countdown in the car with him and I had to look over at them. Evo smoked me by about a car length.
Second race, same rolling start. I get off the line quicker, smoked it by about 2 cars.
Third time around, he told me I was supposed to be starting in 2nd gear but I tell him no way, I'll start in whichever gear I want to.

The secret is, Evos have 21psi and 286lb-ft of torque at 2500-3000 rpm whereas the STI isn't even spooling yet until 3000 rpm. So it would've been unfairly in his favor.

But it was a fun night overall. :)

Good runs. BTW The Evo IX's max boost is 20.16psi at 3500rpm, 85% or the torque is avalible at 2500rpm. Are they tuned?? if not it's a waste and most likely loosing power with the intake. Intakes and VTA BOV's are the worst mods on a IX they hurt the cars performance or drivability, and most people seem to do them first. Any plans with the STi??

Sometime soon after I recover from making this month's car payment :gap:

When's the next time you're going?

Don't I need a helmet... since it's running faster than a 13 (in the 1/4)

Both Evos aren't tuned and you seem to be right on the head with the Intake/BOV thing because that's exactly what my buddy went for first. LOL..

My first mod will be a Cobb AccessPORT w/ Stage1 map. Then a dp like Illusive suggested. I'm not sure on that though, I want to pass smog when the time comes. But I guess I could always swap w/ stock when that occurs...

UTEC is your best friend and will spank the **** outta cobb any day. with their new firmware about to be released it rivals, and beats a good number of standalone systems.

other than that, changing the CBV to a BOV is just noise, and only problems it had were with the 1g/2g eclipses. apparently the new turbo vehicles work around it very well. also, an intake on any vehicle will always give performance, even without a tune, and more with.
