Does 13.5 at 100 stand to reason?
A few years ago I had a 2002 WRX and decided to take it to the dragstrip. The car was bone stock and ran 14.5 at 92mph. I think my 60ft was 1.9, and I launched at 4500 rpm. Since that time I have bought a 2004 WRX and will soon have the Autospeed TBE along with the ACCESSPORT and K&N Panel filter. Is 13.5 and 100 an attainable run if all stays the same i.e. same track, same crappy 60ft? I have looked at the 1/4 mile times in the FAQ's, but there aren't many listed, and none with my exact mods, plus the dragstrip makes a difference.

You should be right around there.

I hope so, but from looking at the 1/4 mile FAQ's it seemed that maybe it was going to take more power than I thought for my 60ft time. I guess the biggest question is if the stock tranny will be able to withstand 270-280 h.p. at the motor without becoming an I.E.D.

Nope. It will break after some duty at the strip. Technique is more 60 foot than power is.
