ok so my friend down here in mexico bought an 2005 wrx sti in texas and brought it down here, he beats me so bad from a start right now, but above 60 mph he pulls on me realy slow, so i am having instlalled my vortech supercharger right now which i am really exited about, so heres my question he says he is gona beat me at any way we race, from a launch, 20 mph roll out, etc he even said he was gona beat me in 1/4 mile time he runs 13 300 when he was stock, now he has a aem cold air intake, and full exhaust, do y guys think he will beat me i have , dc headers, tanabe exhaust, jwt clutch, flywheel, 50 shot of nitrous and intercooler spray and the vortech supercharger do u think he will win? or how could he beat me? :argue:

You should win with the S/C, as long as you can get a good launch.
From a roll you will win for sure, and I am a little surprised that you don't just win now? Perhaps your headers are robbing you of low end grunt & combined with the exhaust I suspect this is the case.

The Sub being 4wd will always out launch the zed but you should get very close to reeling him in stock for stock & it is also driver dependent.

Once you get the S/C kit you should own him, if not get some driving lessons!

Unless you are running some sort of FI, it is extremely difficult to beat an STI. Thats just fact. I've raced a few with all positive results but I am also pushing over 400RWHP.

I got into a little race with one on the highway.. we didnt start next to each other or anything tho. He took off on the entrance ramp, i gave him a few seconds, then i took off. I figured i'd either level off with him or pull on him, but no chance. He steadily disappeared from my view.. must have been pretty heavy modded (at least thats what i tell myself to get some sleep lol)

Unless the STi driver got rid of the 16g for some grander adventures, I would laugh racing an STi w/ a SC'd Z. I ran against my bud who had no cats & exhaust *PRIOR to him installing an mbc and we were dead even. Granted I'm N/A and @ 5500+ feet elevation I was quiet happy with the results of the n/a mods. Was the greatest fun runs I've encountered cause the cars were so dead even in terms of quickness from a roll. From a stop he would get the jump and keep it. I can't imagine being boosted.
