What do you mean by "spank"? Drag strip? Road course? Car show?

Wrx is a real car by all means, srt 4 is fast from a roll but from take off it is another story. A stage 2 wrx will beat out a srt 4 , a stage 4 will smoke it and smoke the sti aswell.

I think from a stop u should be able to go head to head with an srt-4 if u are a good driver. Also what Quickshift said is very true just be careful how u tune then utec.

By spank i mean take it anywhere anytime anywhere... mostly on the freeway. I dont want an STI cause my bro has one, actually he doesnt think my rex can will be able to hang with his. So thats why i am sticking with my wrx. Hey QuickShift like the stage thing sound good but i have no ideal what it is... could explain what it is and where to get it. Brandon

Easy intro into staging (well for me it was) is go to the TurboXS website. Basically staging (what I've gotten out of it) is doing mods to a car in groups (or stages). Like stage 1 (from TXS) is just a utec and stage 2 (from TXS) would be the exhaust, a UTEC, a downpipe and an uppipe. I could be wrong on the whole staging thing as I've only been into this stuff a few monthes.

Drop around 3.5g's and get UTEC, turbo upgrade, injectors, FMIC, tuning. Oh, and ditch the cold air intake. Get a short ram instead. Cold air intakes tend to lean out the WRX. Oh, and maybe upgrade wheels, brakes, and suspension so you can take on your friend's STI.
