if im not mistaken, L's are 2WD. the AWD cars lose a lot of power due to all of the moving parts.

here are the results of a stock 2.5RS from ASR:

hope this helps.

Default It all depends

It all depends on the type of dyno the cars are on. If you convert an AWD 2.5RS to FWD or RWD, your dyno hp numbers will be much higher. It's all been explained in some past issues of SCC.

So the 96hp can not be compared to a FWD car's hp.

yea, ok but what kind of dyno is that? i wish people would stop spouting out the INCORRECT 95whp figures, i mean use your common sense, thats almost a 75% drivetrain loss for crissakes!!!! thats physically impossible! and honeslty my car (a 110hp 1.8L FWD impreza) puts down 86 whp and weighs 2400lbs, and runs high 17s and low 18s in the 1/4. now honeslty lets think about this, if the RS has only 95whp and weighs 2820lbs, how the hell does it repeatedly click off 15s 1/4 miles bone stock. please look at all the AWD dynojets (the kind of dyno makes a huge difference!!) that have been done on our cars at see level. on a dynojet an 2.5RS usually puts down about ~120whp and ~140 lb-fts of torque to all four the wheels.

If these cars have 95whp then it would have like a 20sec. 1/4 miles. The Ford Focus I had put out 130hp at the crank and 110whp. With an intake, chip, and UDP it had about 120whp. Weighing about 2700lbs. it had right at 16sec. 1/4 mile. You figure the RS is heavier and should easily pull off 16sec. 1/4 mile it must have more than 120whp IMO. Is there something wrong with my thinking here?

AWD for one thing. on a good run the RS will trap no higher than 85mph. most cars that trap at around 85mph are running about a 16 flat at the VERY best, but most likey arent ever gonna do much better than low 16's. but the RS with its great low end torque and amazing AWD launches alows it to get better ET's on it quarter mile time (like mid-high 15's in the right circumstances with a capable driver). also the torque, according to the dynojet results the RS appears to make more torque than subaru claims. with around 120whp and a much higher 135-145 lb-ft of torque. torque can help acceleration not only down low. and another thing that might help a little might also be the gearing. the RS has nice short gearing which alows for quick accleration off the bat (a 4.11:1 final drive opposed to say a 150hp, 2580 lbs neon R/T, that has a 3.9:1 final drive, and with a narrower powerband, and runs similar time to an RS) .
