face facts.. we drive a brick wall.

that "agressive" facia and non functional scoops only slow us down..

Dude, the RS tops out (at redline, 5th gear) at about 142. Sorry, but 150+ is a dream...even with a turbo

yeah.. nothing says driveability like rev matching and double clutching..

I don't know if I'd go as far as a racing gear set.

I agree with fishguy, that's why I went 1/2 dog and not full race, it's too much unless you have about 400+ hp and gobs of torque...
that and the 1/2 dog can be upgraded to full dog if you want later....

yeah your mods will work for 140mph, but your mods include a Tranny, as I see on that link, correct? I like to think of my car as "punchy"

dreaaam dream dream whenever i want to...

aghh..now you got that in my freaking head

actually i would say just dump in an STI version 3 and throw in a bigger turbo, FMIC, new injectors, pump, pistons, con-rods and tranny and get what you want cheaper that way some people...

Anyhow a full dog box IS NOT daily driveable..a half-dog box is not for the timid either.. and if you can't drive stick..good luck learning on a dog box

Using the COBB gear ratio calculator spreadsheet http://imprezars.com/images/gearratiocalc.xls I see that one can hit about 145 in a MY2000 RS if it were so equipped to do so.

Therefore, my turbocharged RS has hit the 6,300 rpm rev limiter on a few occasions, so, there you have it - it can be done...

Question can a RS be modified to reach 140 mph??

i was woundering if a RS can be modfied to reach 140mph? i'm guessing that a final drive from the WRX STi's out'a country may do the trick. Doen't the BPM Full Race gearset get you up there(140mph) already? i mean i want higher speeds!!!!!!! any ideas how i can can reach 140mph???

my options:
BPM FullRace Gearset
Will this get me to 140mph?

BPM FullRace Gearset w/ WRX final-drive gear
*******************************************

Gimme some answers please!!! Thanks!!

Actually, with the stock 5th gear and sufficient power, you should have no trouble hitting 150+. It's overcoming the Subie's less than stellar aerodynamics that's the hard part. Top end really isn't the car's real strength anyway.

An RS with stock tranny and gears can't hit 145, no way in hell, no matter the HP.

I'm about 100% sure with the calculations of stock tire size and gearing... the car can hit 147 top speed at redline in 5th.

Now you just need the hp to overcome the drag.

So let's see if I follow this correctly - you are planning on getting an RS in 3 years or so, after which time you plan to modify this car in 3 stages, including a turbo, major engine internals, and replacing the transmission?

So, sometime in about 2005 or thereabouts we should see some postings about how you got this thing to 140 mph, right?

Let us know.

You and imprezive should get together - you both have the same car and mods.
