I am not puting down fbodys because i love them and have one myself, but stock to stock it will out perform most cars on the street. and having awd or not is the name of the game, i ran an 02 ss from a 15 roll and he didn pull on me till top of 4th. ya i ran a 12.7@107 anyone want to see the time slip i will gladley put it on here.
    All V8's sound the same?? Obviously you've never heard a Ford V8 next to a Chevy V8, because thats far from the truth.

    The only thing unique about the STI's exhaust is that its one of the only cars (besides the Evo) that you can pay $32K for and still have it sound like complete garbage. Not something to be proud of.

    There's also no way you hung with an LS1 from a 15 roll, unless you're pushing over 60WHP in mods, which is unlikely. LS1's kill even highly modded STi's from a roll, they don't have shit unless you launch the hell out of them.

    Very possible, I could see that happening with auto/2.73's. However, any roll race against an M6 LS1 is an instant death for just about any STI.

    any stock/near stock sti i agree.......they CAN be monsters with lots of money/mods.....theres a lot of them out there.....check out vishnutuning.com very reputible evo/sti performace shop out in cali.....those cars CAN be very fast for not all that much money.....ive heard lots about reliability probs though........ive thought many times about buying an evo living in roch ny....we get a 100 plus inches of snow a yr........eh i went with the summer/winter car combo instead.......no replacement for displacement in my mind
