    I hope you have alot of play $$$ cause with his ride it sounds like he can spend a few more $$ to make his car even quicker then yours. Next thing you know you spent a few G's chasing your friend and he's still faster!

    Well if having Mad Max by my side helps, then yes, we are indeed on topic.

    I have some money I would be willing to donate-my question is what are you willing to do for it?































    The less extreme of course will get you less, i'll go as low as $50.
    So tell me what would you do for $50 or better yet ls1.comers what do you think he should do for $50?

    I disagree....it sounds to me like his buddy is probably at the point where it's gonna cost him a bunch of money to go much faster where as Andy is just a cheap shot of spray away from laying the smack down. He goes a little faster all Andy has to do is up the shot by 50. With all the extra's and safeties Andy could put bus lengths on him for $1300ish.

    refer back to post 25 please.


    i agree with you on the sti part. i doubt he will be able to reliably make more power..let alone cheaply. Andy i am with you on the no juicey juice thing...however you are kind of up shits creek right now. better go with some AFR or EP or TFS heads and put a monster cam in.....its the only way..or go with a ls3 427 or a ls2 414 ...or better yet..give me some money so i can get one of those engines..then i will beat him and you and steal all the glory.

    If the STI does have a stage 2 block by axis then it should be able to handle 550ishwhp with a good tune. The real weak point of the STI engine after 400whp is the pistons and rings, and thats basically what the stage 2 block replaces. So basically another 100whp, if hes running meth just to hit 450whp that would mean he most likely needs a new turbo and or fuel system to hit 550whp. Good turbo should be about 1800-2000, new injectors 700, and a tune who knows if would need more fuel system mods as im sure his pump isnt stock as it is. So if he spent another 3-4k on the car he would add another 100whp pretty reliably.

    3-4k is a good chunk of change

    According the STI fan club guys that we were chatting with on Woodward the other night, the clutch is good for about 450whp... where he is now... and then the problems start. He has 65k mileage on the car and the clutch is original. The trans I guess is pretty bullet-proof as it sits.

    The sti 6 speed can hold a good amount of power 450-550hp, the 02-06 wrx tranny is the super weak one. The legacy 5 speed and 07 and newer wrx 5 speed can hold about 400hp. Obviously there are some who brake them under stock power just like there are some who have 600whp STIs with the stock tranny. The rear diff on the sti is a torsen product and can hold about as much as the 6 speed tranny. The front diff is the weakest but most people who have 450-500hp still have the stock drivetrain.

    We think it is anyway lol. But 3-4k for another 100whp isnt bad. The 3-4k to hit 550whp is a conservative number, if he really wanted he could spend 3-4k on a much bigger turbo and huge injectors and put down 600-700whp, obviously he would be exceding his engine and bottom end at that point but if he wanted to risk it he could.

    Why are you so angry?

    I also agree that 3-4K for 100 WHP is a good deal, assuming that's true.

    If it was some random guy, or someone I didn't know very well, I would agree. But flip flop situations with me and my best friend, I'd be doing the same thing.
