    Not that I'm aware of. However, Fuji Heavy Industries does make some pretty impressive stuff in industrial, public, and aerospace applications, as well as automotive.

    My STi peak spool was at 2700 rpm's and I was running an ots stage 2 map and a gutted DP with 3" catback.
    I did about 160 mph(still had some left too !) in it racing my sister-in-law in her madza speed 6.

    Then its not built lol

    Unless you mean the engine is built but the gearing hasnt been changed and it runs outta rpm around there. But if is setup correctly should get to 160 pretty fast, depending on how built it is a built STI can get to 160 with ease

    his is in the 500 wheel range. at about 130 it stops "pullin like it did" and starts gradually slowin down. this doesnt mean it's not pullin anymore but it certainly doesnt feel like 500 wheel that it felt like @ 70. . .i dunno what your defenition of "with ease" is. . .of course his car goes 160 but "with ease" is not somethin even he would claim. . .i dun wanna argue bout it i was just puttin my .02 in so this didnt turn into a wrex praisin session. cuz they are certainly nothin to praise against a non-awd car at the speeds we talkin bout.

    well if he makes 500 at the wheels and cant hit 160 fairly easy then somethins wrong, cuz i can hit 160 VERY easy and i only make 420 compared to his 500

    You guys are all idiots, top speed depends on gearing. If your ratios are low = lower top speed at high rpms. Seriously you have to stop being such fanboys, you call your cars stock with just a few bolt ons and this guy probably had exhaust + reflash. would you consider an exhaust and a tune a modified car? probably not. DP + tune STi's can run a 12.5, I'm sure that can keep up with a TA

    top speed also depends on aerodynamics and torque, along with gearing. maybe you're the idiot?

    I agree with big hammer, its not just about gearing hitting top speed although it is important and thats why many euro's do well top end. You need good Aero. and good amount of power/Tq to be able to pull at higher speeds. Lots of reasons why an STI hits 12.5 in the quarter you need to also look at MPH. Ive seen plenty of 4wd cars sti's and evo's running very quick times but mph was just the same or maybe a tad faster then a 13.4 second car.

    If your talking quarter mile especially with 4wd cars they make up most of there times in the very begining the 1st 60 ft with a good driver and even then ive seen some really sh*ty drivers bogging off the line. I think an STI will hit 160 mph but you also have to look at how long it takes it to hit 160mph some cars can hit it for example in 20 seconds and some cars will do it in 25 seconds and thats just an example. Just because both cars can hit 160 doesnt mean they both accelerate the same.

    Gearing + aero + power/torq = top speed

    And if a car has bolt ons, then its not stock. Most of us around here agree on that (most = 99.9 %)

    If its been modifed from stock and makes more power...guess what?? Its modified

    Never seen any one call their car "stock" if it has bolt ons. Mods = not stock. Why are you confused by this concept??

    probably not. DP + tune STi's can run a 12.5, I'm sure that can keep up with a TA
    12.5's don't mean shit when its all in the launch. Once the car is in the triple digit speeds, might as well get out and push. You can brag about AWD launches all you want, but the real power is represented by trap speed.

    a full exhaust/intake f-body can hit mid-high 12's. . .an sti with someone willing to launch it like it should be lauched can hit 12's with mild bolt-ons. so. . .both cars can hit 12's with bolt ons. the f-body is STILL the faster car. throw some rubber on the rear of that same f-body that is sticky enough to run well below 2 sec 60's, like said sti can, and then you're loookin at an embarassed sti. i just dont get why so many people dont understand the trade-offs of awd. . . .AT THE TRACK: quicker launch, slower trap speeds. . .ON THE STREET: beast to 70, beat after. close ratio gear boxes are lame also. . . . .keep that shit on the dirt.

    meh I would rather have a sti than a f-body some days and others I would rather have the f-body atleast the sti isn't an automatic 2-3 grand after the purchase of the car to make sure it doesn't kill its rear axle

    ^ 10 bolts are weak but people have gotten into the 10's in the 1/4 with them I know of a guy right now that is pushing 428 RWHP with stock 10 that is holding up. That and rears are more like $1700 - $2000. They are hit or miss, some break under stock power, some hold up. Mine has seen a couple 5K dumps with it hooking 100%, you can kiss AWD good bye unless it was pulling 500 or so horse since I did these 2 hard launches with full bolt ons.

    What did you run when you dumped it at 5k? 60 foot? What tires?

I doubt even my car as it sits (intake & TBE on stock boost and un-tuned) would hang with a stock LS1 from a higher roll. My car will pull on the new Mustang GT's and is about even with the Charger R/T Daytona's from a roll. I'd like to find a stock LS1 to do a fun run with, but stock ones are hard to find here in Chicago.

    But if you heard his turbo over, your modded car and he's supposed to be stock.. something should be going in your head that something isn't right
    I have a stock ls1

    I was running Goodyear GSD3's 275/40/17 and was not at the track Me and a buddy went out for some burn outs and couldn't get the damn thing to burn out First I dropped it at 2,000 and the car died, I was like what the fuck So I dumpped it from 3,500 and it chirped and took off. So it got me pissed and I decided to do a couple 5,000 + drops which resulted in the car chirping and taking off like it was doing a wheelie (which I wish it had the power to do). I was astonished, but in all reality, it was 100 degrees out and the road had been black topped a few weeks prior.
