Well I'm leaving Walmart and I am sitting in the parking lot trying to make a phone call (I hate trying to drive and use my cell phone) so I hang up and see this STI fly by pretty fast...
and hurry and head out the parking lot, mean while he hit a red light right next to Walmart, so again I'm like
So I pull up next to him and open my downpipe (Needwings FTW baby), the light goes green and I casually take off... These guys in a Riced out Honda Civic pull up next to me and say, "Race the STi, race the STi". So I just give them a nod.
So I look over at the STi and he starts revving on me, at this time we're both going about 40MPH.
So... we take off.......... VROOM VROOM ZOOMM...
Well, almost immediately I put a car length or so on him. So I begin to think, there is no way he is stock. Well I slow down and he smiles and gives me a thumbsup, so I'm like, "Wow an STi driver that isn't a homo!" so I smile kindly at him.
We slow down and he asks, "Whats done to your car?"
To save time and engery I just say "Stage 2, Exhaust and a few other things"
He ask, "You still on the stock turbo and software?"
I say, "Yeah".
He's like "Its fast!",
So I ask what he is running and he says, "Cobb Stage 2, 3" TBE, CAI, and FMIC and he said he dyno'd 320AWHP"
I was like "Nice".
He said and he has never raced a SRT4 but now respects them.
I then turned and went home.
He was a cool guy and all, but Im sure he was somewhat bent out of shape lol... I've yet to lose to an STi from a roll... Im sure I will eventually though lol... Just had to share my lovely story.
My Race FMIC, CAI, and Fuel Pump are NOT installed yet... so those mods were NOT on my car during this.
I was also on my stock Map... my DTEC wasnt active so I was hitting nice low 9-10s AFRs.
