WRX Vs Saab Viggen

My buddy has a 1999 Saab Viggen and I was wondering how you guys thought the WRX might fare against it. I need to be able to spank the Viggen with all the trash he has been talking. I am really not too impressed with the low end torque of the 2 WRX's that I have driven. Would one of the stage 1 kits address some of this? I'm planning on getting a wrx later this summer, and probably going with a stage 1 kit soon after. My current ride is a 1998 saab 900 turbo, which has great low end torque, but I feel like at 100k miles it may become a money pit. Thanks.

Well, low end on a turbo car is 4000 rpm....

And, you should walk all over that car.

Yeah, the torque on the Saabs is pretty low. My 1998 900 turbo makes max torque of 194 @ 2100 RPM. The subaru makes more torque, and kills it with the added traction though. It will just need to be driven differently than what I have now.
