It depends on what you mean by "stock" ! Folks have run high 12 second ET's on a factory stock engine, and turbo with common mods like up pipe, down pipe, boost controller, aftermarket exhaust etc.

A quick search pulls up these threads among others:

Show room stock your best times will be up in the low 14's or there abouts at sea level. With just a boost controller that would drop into the 13's.

I'd say low 14s-high 13s is optimistic on a stock 'showroom' WRX. The popular magazines have them running 14.6-14.8 stock and that corrects for altitude and temperature. Realistically, if you're going to run your car soon, don't be upset if you get mid- to high-14s. That's what makes it fun - adding mods and watching the time drop.

I've seen several articles in the 14.0-14.5 range for a stock WRX as well.

I've never heard anything that sounded even remotly honest that claimed better than 14.1 stock.. when the car came out the rags had it from 14.1(C&D) to like 15.0 (motortrend I think).. most people can w/ a great launch look to 14.3-5ish

Motor Trend got a 14.4 with a wagon. The only 15 second time I've seen in a mag was in a 4eat wagon

And that's corrected times, don't forget. I'm sure there are some cars out there that run low-14s bone-ass stock, but they're few and far between. And it's not all driver - some cars just come out of the factory a little bit stronger than the rest.

so what if they are corrected times? That just means they are set to normal conditions. The actual time may have been faster or slower.

Road&Track, Car and Driver, MT and Sportcompact car all got between 14.0 and 14.5. Thats all major magazines at different points of time.

Granted some have gotten upper 14's as well. Why aren't you considering those as coming out of the factor weaker than the rest? I think the highest time published by a 5MT WRX is like 14.8. I think that is the outlier and not the half a dozen tests i've seen with times <14.5.

In optimal conditions you could see a low 14s. But what is the point. Modding the car is where the fun is.

You're absolutely right. Some do come out of the factory weaker than others. As far as corrected times - they might be setting them to normal conditions, but what is normal? I'd love to run every single time at 45 degrees at an altitude of zero with no wind or humidity, but I don't think that's ever going to happen unless you're in Death Valley in the middle of winter and the El Nino isn't bothering you.

In Nebraska, where I live, we're at about 1,500 feet and it's rarely, if ever 45 and windless when the tracks are open. If it is windless then the humidity is killer. If the humidity is down then it's 80 degrees and windy.

But what I'm saying is for a guy who wants to know what his car runs stock - he should expect low-14s his first time out. Or ever. My guess is if you do, you'll be disappointed.

Like I said and SINthetic said - modding is what makes this fun. And actually having a higher stock time can be good later on. You can say "I ran a 14.8 stock and after an intake, exhaust, downpipe, uppipe and headers I ran a 13.8 (or whatever a WRX with those mods runs)."

I'm not arguing that ALL WRXs come out of the factory running 15.0s. I'm just saying some do, and if yours does, don't get down about the car. Enjoy modifying it and watching the time drop.

Of course that was not the question posted at the start of the thread, he wanted to know the "fastest" ie the best anyone has done to date. he also made no qualifications other than stock engine and stock turbo.

I can remember not to many years ago when folks thought any 12 second run was simply impossible on the stock turbo no matter what other mods you did. Now we know that mid 12's are probably the limiting ET without Nitrous.

In the real world most folks run very high 14's to low 15's their first time out on a show room stock WRX, but quickly come down into solid 14's with some practice.

Larry

Just because it hasn't been done (or not reported) does not mean it is impossible.

Very true on all accounts. And I thought he was asking what he'll run in his stock (showroom) WRX. All I'm saying is I've been racing for many years and know not to expect too low of ETs or you just get angry and bang on your steering wheel and kick your tires.

I've seen someone run a 13.9 in a stock WRX before.
