Me: VF34, 565 injectors, catless, tuned, etc.
Him: My car would smoke that! No offense
Me: Really? What did it put down?
Him: A little over 290 whp, thats 300 to the crank.
Me: Less than 10hp loss through the drivetrain? That doesnt sounds right.
Him: It is dude, FWD doesnt lose any power. But Maybe if you go stage 2 you'll put down as much as me. I kept up with a stage 2 WRX.
Me: Mines over a "stage 2", its not a stage anything.
Him: You cant beat a true stage 2 though.
Me: Okay man, I have to go, I'll talk you later...
I've got a good friend who has a B5 S4. He just replaced his OEM turbo's with OEM turbo's, new FMIC, TBE and had it protuned and HOLY SIHT! The car is an animal!

There are A LOT of cars that are faster than Subaru's out there unfortunately. I guess it just depends what kind of car you have, but even Evo's make crazy power with simple bolt on's where are the EJ engines don't seem to react quite the same to minor bolt ons.

The funny thing is that the car has over 300,000kms! So over 180,000 miles and the thing still pulls like a horse with mustard stuck up its bottom (Top Gear reference)
