13 MK6 GTI vs 09' Subaru WRX

Hey guys I got another notch under my belt today. I was on the freeway this morning came to a light (yes light on the freeway Vegas go figure) anyway I was behind a WRX not sure if STI. I had been messing with him prior to the light so when it turned green we both stepped on it. Surprisingly enough I wasn't being left behind... when we passed the car to my right I switched lanes and started to pull slowly until I was about half a car length ahead. I was at about 115 at this point and let off. Was definitely a thrill and something I didn't think I could accomplish at stage 1 with intake.

Nice kill. I'm stage 1 too. Do you know if the WRX had any mods? exhaust?

Yes the exhaust was all chromed out so I figure he swapped out the stock one. It was quite glorious...lol I had a 08' Civic Si before this and I'd never stand against a WRX...

Definitely not a STI if a Stage 1 beat him out.
Good kill on a WRX.

I was looking at the 2015 STI stock dyno numbers and they are at 225whp... that's 75 less than advertised... pretty weak.

K04 against a STI is a toss-up. All things considered, a MKVI with Stage 1 isn't faster than a STI.
Ask me how I know.
Oh, what the hell...I'll go ahead and fess up.
Ran a 2015 STI with my Stage 2 Uni, and I came in second. Close, but no cigar.

Agreed.

One of my coworkers has a 2015 STI with an accessport running a 91 tune. Pulled on him twice at 100+ speeds with my Stage 2.

My buddy got an 09 wrx hatch and since he got it, he feels he's in another league above me. He got the access port but hasn't installed it yet. I told him, whatever dude, my car feels equal, if not faster when he pushes it hard from a roll.

He believes AWD=instawin.
