Draging my car tonight at PIR
Well tonights the night in my new suby at portland international raceway i just bought the car last week, and was wondering what should i expect out of my 2003 wrx sedan turbo? It has a magnaflow muffler but dont think that will help much so it is pretty bone stock anyone run theres bone stock and if so what kinda 1/4 mile e/t's-mph 60' times should i be expecting.. any advice would help too thanks

well i am back and got to say it was alot of fun... launching a awd is pretty tricky imo... i

ran 8 passes my worst was 60'=2.236 and 1/4=15.299 @ 86.14mph missed 3rd:(... my

very last pass was my best... 60'=2.058 and 1/4=14.753 @ 91.40mph.... so i improved a

bunch imo... still got to work on that launch i was launching at 6500 feathering it out letting

it grab and off i go:D, not dropping the clutch and it seems to get my 60' around 2.0's i

just have to find the happy medium i guess

When you launch try keeping it between 4500-5000 rpms. Kinda rev it betewwn that when the tree starts its cycle.. It will help you build boost....
Good times by the way.

well went again this weekend to the track and did launch between 4500 and 5000 and it help alot and also instead of shifting at redline i shifted about 6500 and posted up some really good numbers i thought (for being stock)

60' 1.961
1/8 9.126
mph 75.24
1/4 14.346
mph 93.10

i was very pleased:)
