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)
I have a freind with an 01 s4 as well, and his is "stage 2", and I feel about the same quickness as mine, maybe slightly better. My other friends hybrid WRX with a vf22 is definetely quicker though.
And the kid I was talking about had a b5 2000 A4 with the 1.8t and a 5 speed. I honestly doubt it put down 290whp, I think he just said that. But I may be wrong here.
