Default STi go FAST!

Ok, I've had my car back for 2 days now. Haven't been able to find anyone picking a fight. Christine did drive all over Stephan but it wasn't really a race. (Stephan, what did you think???)

I must say it is impressive. Not only can I rip roar to 100kph in under 4.5 seconds but it is quite content to tool around town like a stock L model.

The idle is pretty nice and the car is pretty quiet with the MRT 3" TB exhaust. The lumpy STi cams don't hurt the idle too much and they really show up once you're underway. The torque really starts about 3500 and holds up under well past 7000.

The car is also noticeably faster than a WRX with the COBB stage 1 kit but since the cobb kit has a boost controller it spools much quicker. In my opinion the best drive would be somewhere in the middle between mine and the stage one since the car is so fast you don't need full boost to pass someone but by flooring it you can get full boost.

When we first tried the car it was overboosting to 22PSI and that is where the fuel cut is. That was insanely fast. Now the car runs quite well at 15 PSI. If I take off just right then I get full boost in 1st but have to hold it at 7,000 and wait for the wheels to catch up. Same with 2nd gear. On the dry 3rd will only light up sometimes. (Depends how quick I shifted).

The turbo makes some cool sounds that I didn't hear on the WRX. Apparently it can't be heard outside the car but it makes a nice "POOF" sound whenever I shift.

I will have the car at the next meeting.

i can't wait to see this at the next meet (drool)

If it was me I would have pulled up beside you and then floored it It was Christine driving. She has much to learn in the art of getting people to race I wasn't watching too closely but in a span of a few seconds (she was in 3rd) it went from 80kph-130kph

Since I'm not the sort to go out trying to intimidate a race, nobody has actually tried to race me. Unfortunately I think it won't be as fun anymore because it only takes like 3 seconds to pass the speed limit. Do not ask how I know this but the car is speed limited at 180kph. Pretty embarrassing when a stock Impreza could pass me at high speed

I usually don't have time to attend these meetings but it would be worth making time to see your car.

I'll post something confirming my presence there before the next meeting. There really isn't a good spot near the meeting to go for rides but after the meeting I'm sure I can take a few people up to the queensway and back

My only problem right now is that the car doesn't feel as fast. Might just be me getting used to it.

I saw you this evening.....

Corner of Innes and Orleans BLVD...... you were in the merge lane on Innes going towards 10th line....

I was on the other side of Innes in my 92 Mazda 323 (going to Costco)..... The MRT exhaust is nice.... not loud at all but give off a nice sound on the STI engine.....

it was funny cause the minivan jumped the light and already had almost a full car lenght on you and you passed him in first gear.... by 2nd gear, you were about 15-20 car lenghts ahead.....

Haha. I thought that was you. That minivan was being annoying too. Kept cutting in front of me so when he did that just before the light I cut back into the right lane. He actually started moving on the red. I didn't even launch when it went green but did give it WOT for a sec until the wheels started spinning. I'm curious to know if you can hear the poof of the BOV from outside. Sounds sweet inside. I'm sure you will find out this weekend.

I am coming to catch up. hehe Engine and tranny this weekend, next weekend its the wiring.. But again, even if that its ready to start.. I dont have any brakes on the car ( Still waiting for my new brake setup to come in..), my new downpipe is not ready, my roll cage is not in the car, I did not order my Link computer yet... Still have some work to do, but at least, it should start soon.. Just ready for spring..

Why are you running 15psi ??? Sti are running 17psi ?? (and personnally, I will not drive my car under 19psi..)

Anyway, hope to see you on the track this summer Solo1 ?? I will love to race you .. V3 vs V4 hehe

I believe it's supposed to be 15.5 PSI stock. Fuel cut is at 22 PSI. I think I'll get a boost controller. Rejean's WRX spools a million times quicker than mine because of it but I'm not sure I want to sacrifice the calm driveability of it. It's nicer to barely cruise past cars rather than spin the tires rip-roaring past. Better to get a fight that way if they think they have a chance

At 20 PSI the stock STi clutch starts to slip...

I didn't really have a chance to hear it (I think I did but can't remember)..... I did notice the minivan jump the light on you and noticed took off easy but then gave full throttle....

There was a pedestrian (young guy) on my side and he was looking at you and was checking how fast you accelerate.... I guess he was surprised....

I like the sound of the MRT though..... good choice......

I still don't consider it a first kill. Needed: pimped up teg or civic with all the blue and green lights loud grapefruitlauncher who wants to race. Then I'll feel good about walking away with his doors in my trunk.

d00f,

Zero to 100kph in 4.5secs?
There’s no way my Scooby can pull that off … but it’d be fun to see how she stacks up anyway; ‘up for friendly match?

Ed.

PS: Way to go Canada! Wahoo!

Ed. Sure we should do a comparison some time.

I timed 0-100 on my laptop the other day. 4.8 seconds. That wasn't abusing the gearbox. Being new to turbocharged cars I am a little surprised at how it requires adjustment to one's driving methods.

I know you're madly in love with your lagless SC so you probably wouldn't like the experience. It does pull pretty hard though.

Off the lights if I rev it a little and then do a slight clutch slip launch as not to shock the drivetrain too much it just spins all the tires madly. Otherwise it's a painful first 15 feet until I hit boost.

I did a lot of work myself so it is not worthwhile to consider what I paid and what someone would expect to pay to have the full swap done. If I were you, I'd budget about $3k for the work.
