I already said you can tune an STi to match the M3.
My comparison was stock to stock. Your comparison was a protuned sti to the slowest m3 time you could find.
I'm not over stating anything. Stock to stock, the M3 is a much faster car.
The STi is very tuneable. Did I not say you could match it with $$$?
Did you not read my post?
That is far beyond stage 2 where you will find any difference between the wrx and sti turbos. Also I bet his pro tuned wrx with intercooler and ebcs IS trapping 114 when you consider a down pipe + protune will get you 111 on 93 octane.
Also OP was asking if a modified Subaru would beat an m3, did you not read?
Also, they have EXACTLY THE SAME WHP. You should spend some time on cobbs dyno database. WRX is actually faster in the 1/4 mile because of equal whp but lighter weight.
