I raced one when I was stock he had around 350 whp I beat him,but still be careful with those he could have much more than that,at the end of the day he still hating on your F...I've noticed people with those cars wanna race and beat u to feel a bit better about their p.o.s car....if u were fully bolt on then yea 50-160 he may not even make it to 150

I wouldn't do it because you don't know what he has under his hood...

exactly if he wont let you look under the hood or tell you mods and hes willing to drop $500 then hes got something that will beat the F for sure. The F is fast but when compared to a built subi its not guna beat it.

he shoulda hustled you and started with $100 let you win then do double or nothing then smoke you lol

^ I agree with what everyone is saying about not knowing whats under his hood. STIs can be dangerous to mess with especially if you dont know what he's running... I daily drive my 07' STI with a low 13sec to high 12sec tune, I would know

Just do a friendly race, no cash involved and call it a day. GL and keep us updated with the outcome.

Not being a fanboi, but your poll is "for the win" with no other conditions. If you want to consider all-around attributes, the ISF wins (more reliable, more luxurious, more rare, more features, more comfortable). What does the STI have on you? Probably speed and that's about it.

When I lost to my friend's C5 Vette by half a car length.....I told him this and he couldn't argue with it

+1 My 04 STI before i sold it made around 450. I got tired of modding and i wanted some luxury. My tuner in TX had an STI who used to beat M5 on the drag strip.

Dont get me wrong i have a isf now and the car is superior than the wrx or sti in almost any aspect but highly modded wrx or sti are not easy pray same goes with the evos until the evo 9 , evo 10 are not the same

Also subarus are forced induction and isf is n/a the cars dont even qualify in the same categories so is not worth the comparission the guy wants to beat you up and them make fun out of you , i switched to isf and one day i found a friend with a supped subaru close to 600 whp and we ran for the fun of it and he beat me silly when we arrive to the place we where heading he was making fun out of me for the race but i told him iknow you are faster than me no doubt bit whos driving a lexus!!!! He said you are right and we laughed

I love Subaru. My daily is an 04 forester xt with an sti conversion. Very fun and quick. It's an awesome sleeper that doesn't attract attention. Subarus have so much more flexibility for modding its rediculious.

hahaha I love it!

I wouldn't do it, who knows what he has under there - it can be tuned up the wazoo!
