1/8th mile times?
 
Just bought my 2004 WRX and I was wondering what the STOCK times would be for it, in the 1/8th? The only mod on my car is a ProDrive axle back.

It depends. A friend of mine ran a 8.8 with his bone stock WRX. Most of the times I have seen are in the 9.2-9.5 range.

Im a newbie to the AWD turbo seen when it comes to drag racing, an with my 2002 WRX (Stock besides the blow off valve) I was only able to pull a 9.7 in the 1/8 out of 5 runs. What am i doin wrong if someone got a 8.8??? I know that was my first time up their with the car but to suck with a 14.8-15.0 1/4 mile run i could use some pointers. I was told to try and launch the car 4-5K pulsing on the gas and slipping the clutch out slowly, not dropping it. I havent gotten a chance to try that yet but in a couple of weeks ill be running up at the track. Help LOL!?

What was your 60' time and trap speed?

Imprezzive 05-04-2005 05:21 PM

My time slip reads as:
R/T ---------.562
60' ----------2.030
330 ---------6.117
1/8 ---------9.517
MPH --------71.07
1000------- 12.432
1/4 ---------14.877
MPH --------92.15

Maybe you can see where my problems happen. Im looking to get 14.5 out of it stock, constantly also. I thought car and driver said they could get 14.4 stock. these times were achived my dropping the clutch out at ~5k not slipping it. all shifts were done at 7K with the gas released between shifts. I ended in 3rd gear at 7100 RPMS

Try slipping the clutch a little bit. It allows you to build more boost, and should cut a tenth or two off your 60' time.

kool will do. im ordering right now a gt spec header, perrin downpipe and hks exhaust. im also in installing a perrin fuel rail, STi pinks, and a walbro fuel pump. im hoping to see some gains with this. would a Utec be recommended after these mods?

I think you have to get utec (or similar) to manage the new fuel system...
I hear headers have little to no performance gains?...

just get an uppipe and if you change the fuel system, you're going to need a UTEC

I have a K&N and a silencer delete (I am stock)

never had a 60' below 2.0 so, I will probably be able to hit 8s without doing any mods...

Well, the header will hurt you more than it will help you. You should probably cancel the order on that.

Also, you CANNOT run upgraded injectors without some sort of engine management. It won't work.

You should ditch the header and get an uppipe. Also consider an upgraded intercooler.

Imprezzive 05-06-2005 06:51 PM

wow good thing i waited for that reply. see i was only ordering the header because the one i have, i had some1 weld the EGT under the 3rd clyinder and the gauge for some reason doesnt work at all, or will read a max temp of 250 F no matter what i am doin to the motor. But the person who i trusted to weld the probe in did the most F'd job ever and pretty soon theyll be a rust hole the size of approx a computer mouse. I was also told that the header makes the exhaust system sound 10x better, but if it will hurt me bad, im 2nd guessing it. just wish the one on their looked alittle better.

But instead ill cancel out the header, get a perrin up/down with the hks hi power and feed the motor with the injen front mount or the maybe the blitz? and recomendies

Cosmo 05-07-2005 07:29 AM

Neither of those. The Injen is rediculously tiny. The Blitz is poorly constructed. If you want a FMIC, there are a few good choices: Perrin, APS, MRT, Hyperflow

Imprezzive 05-09-2005 06:45 PM

its a good thing you say that, because before you posted that reply, i had already ordered the parts. incoming to me is a Perrin FMIC, with there cold air induction( both from JSCSPEED). i purchased the perrin up and down pipe and the HKS Hi power exhaust. I also bought a Turbo XS cheap boost controller. These products sound like a good combination? im hoping for some better ETs now. i want to break 13.99

Cosmo 05-10-2005 07:13 AM

Well, I hate to tell you, but you can't use a cold air intake with a FMIC. It won't fit.
