My Race with An Impreza Today

I own a vectra v6 estate with many mods such as a K&N filter which adds 15hp and that intake roar iv always wanted, i have a remap which adds 30hp and a full stainless exhaust from catback. I was approching a set of lights and a Impreza Bugeye Wrx Red Top came next to me and he revved his engine next to me i knew i was going to beat him so i revved my engine. The lights changed to green and i left him standing upto 130mph he couldnt keep up he was propobly only doing 110mph, he came beside me and he was gutted so i tol told him my engine spec he was amazed. why are impreza's so slow

Re: My Race with An Impreza Today

is that dyno proven increases? i'd be very surprised if there up that much.

also depends on what mods wrx was running, prob not alot. there only low 200's as standard so if you have upped the power your prob pushing more power at the wheels than he is due to transmission loss.

just watch out what you try against, scoobs are pretty easy to tune up power wise and i doubt you'll stay with some of the more well tuned ones.

But can't beat a good old friendly play, on private roads of course

Re: My Race with An Impreza Today

WRX redtop??

thought only VX ran redtops??

hmmm..212bhp from a V6 veccy is not bad at all,considering a standard WRX is 218bhp,assume you had t/c on to be able to hoon it off the lights,otherwise massive spin and torque steer would have occured otherwise...

"K&N filter which adds 15hp and that intake roar iv always wanted, i have a remap which adds 30hp and a full stainless exhaust from catback."

So 15 + 30 + say 30 for exhaust = 75bhp increase on top of the 167bhp from standard.

Total 242bhp. Is this correct?
