What blows are dyno videos where you can't hear the car.
That turbo doesn't look that big, but it must be the way that power curve sky rockets. That thing must take off like a rocket.

Most people are used to Dynojet or Mustang plots which have all that writing and whatnot beneath the plot so the graph is rectangular instead of square like this one, it tends to flatten the curve quite a bit.

Yeah, and I think it's a requirement for 99% of car guys to have horrible taste in music. At least it wasn't Disturbed.

I think the car holds the WRX dyno and 1/4 time records.

lol Its funny to see this vehicular rivalry ... Thats an awesome freaking build to make that sort of power. Since it is still a 4 cylinder subaru motor, i do not think it is beyond 2.8L, the limit of the 2.5 sti motor with boring and stroking to my knowlege without going to the B9 H6 3.0 motor. So what if they had to use a big turbo for that, 800 hp out of a 3.0L = 266hp/L. Thats a damn lot and I am giving them beyond the benefit of the doubt. I say nice job subie guys.

what good is it to have a power band that narrow? every time you shift you are back to 300HP. It seems like it would be better to have 500 or so HP and actually maintain power through shifts.

Wonder what it cost to get that wrx in the 10s?

I can truly appreciate something like this 10sec Mx3 done on a budget.

I'm sure it cost a lot... but 800 Awhp is a little different from 425 Fwhp.
Besides, if we're talking about cheap speed, all imports are a waste of money.
