What are we explaining?

Your getting killed by WRX's and you want to know why?

You may gain torque because you have a bit more displacement, but its negated once they reach boost. Thus you lose.

I would imagine your out handling EVO's because they suck at driving, or your suspension is setup rather nicely. I have always found that EVO's with their quick rack then to out handle most cars on the road. So more then likely its the first thing.

only after 80, but im taking them by about 5 or 6 car leagths. I put a fresh motor in with the same heads and i was only acouple cars back at 120-130?
and im just trying to understand what makes an NA quicker than a wrx.

2000 Impreza 2.2 L. Catback exhaust, cold air intake, short throw and P&P heads. Its got a 0-60 of 6.3, although I've takin lightly modded wrx's up to 80mph
Interesting. I call BS on the 0-60 time since my car is way more modified than yours is with a larger engine to start with, and I can't even get a 6.3 second 0-60 time and I barely keep up with WRXs.

You're not beating the WRX by 5-6 car lengths.. that would be murder in racing world. N/A 2.2's aren't as fast as WRX's by a longshot unless you've dumped a lot of money into the 2.2. Maybe they weren't racing you?

look like he selling a moded 2.2 impreza L..stock rs make 0-60 in 7.9...but i dont think he can make lower 6 with this kind of mods


02-05 wrx are 160 WHP and rs are 130 WHP..if you have a heavy moded NA rs.you sould keep up a stock wrx..

I'm close friends w/ Sean Saxton owner of RalliTek and he was not suprised when we ran a comparison with an 04 WRX and my 2.2, I had beaten WRX in an 1/8 mile but 1/4 the 2.2 lost once doing a 3rd gear pull the WRX didnt pull fast at all but we still havent figured this shit out, so we're asking everyone elses opinon

Your not giving us the whole story of your car. 157whp on a 2.2 NA? Thats not a stock, or even lightly modified 2.2 engine. What? you hiding a bottle in your trunk or something? :blol:

I have a larger motor, with pretty much the same mods and its been tuned and it only yielded a bit over 160.

Somethings not right....

If your putting just shy of 160 to the pavement, then it is of no surprise to me that your taking pink-slips from WRXs. I AutoX a NA 00RS in SM and do very very well against modified STis and EVOs. There isn't a stock WRX in our AutoX club that even comes close..

Dual port headers or single port headers??? just wondering because if its an L with an RS motor then maybe I could see that happening... Its a long shot but it may happen...

is this like in Gran Turismo or something? Has to be in a video game. Don't think
you could pull off this 0-60 time with that build.
