Background:

91 GT-FOUR RC: catbackexhaust, bov, filter

06 Subaru Impreza WRX: filter, stock

I always wonder how our cars will compete with the Subaru's. Stat wise, we look par. AWD, 5spd, turbo....

Rolling start in second gear....Subaru won...it was pulling harder than mine

0-120....Subaru won....by two cars.

It comes down to technology....17 years vs 2 years... i tried.... :shoots:

According to the stats i found, the 06 WRX is 3190 lbs with stock boost of 11.6 psi and 230bhp.

Other than it being lighter, id say they are pretty evenly matched. It would be interesting to see how the RC would compare with the same boost and 100-150 lbs knocked off.

What technology?
15 years of technology difference?

06 WRX has 0.5L more displacement
It has more boost
It is lighter.
It has 2 year old turbo, engine, clutch, etc..

mine has a 3" full system and its boosting at 13psi without boost controller. do u have dp and mp? a bov will kill ur boost pickup on every gear... bypass it.
