Default S2000 vs. WRX?

Hi ... for those who don't know me I'm Richard, Tom's ( silver S2000 ) brother who drives the red WRX. Anyone around the Atlanta area have a FI S2000 either supercharged or turbocharged? Would you be willing to do some quick runs against me? I'm the other Asian guy who you guys saw at the AutoX a few months back w/ the roof rack.

Hey, Rich
Pretty soon you'll have the chance! Tim have two MG supercharger coming (?? some where shipped to the wrong adress in VA?) I think one of the local S2000 member will be the guinea pig. Exact date when the supercharger will be here or install is stil up in the air, but soon you will have a chace to test it out.

Haha ... it's all good ... I'm thinking someone in VA is liking a free new SC. Always you guys/gals can give me a ring if you want a friendly race.

Sir Tom,
When did you have "Force Induction" (FI)? Or is it just all of the S2000 have "Fuel Injection"(FI)??
Did you get new rear tires yet??

You talking smack about my roof rack ... I got it dynoed and the roof rack gave me 50whp due to better air flow . Which FI type do your have?

Kindof confused on this one. Is your WRX modded? I mean we all know a stock S beats a stock WRX any day... what up?

Haha ... sorry Tom I didn't know it was you. It totally flew out of my head. Actually my average is 0-60 @ 4.8sec w/ "best" time at 4.66sec. I wish I could get a 0-60 @ 4.5sec w/out a EMS. To clarify things ... a stock S2000 will "NOT" beat a stock WRX in a launch 0-70mph and will maybe catch up to it 0-100 at 100+mph. However a stock S2000 will "WALK" away from a stock WRX on any type of roll. With only $1500+/- in mods a WRX will walk away at a "FAST" pace on a S2000. I'm sure even if the S2000 got $1500 +/- in mods the WRX would still walk away. The S2000 seems to be so highly tunned that the rea power gains are just $$$$. Tom ( NOT my brother ) and I raced each other at 3 lights and I had an extra passenger. Tom did very well in his launches for a S2000 but we know the outcomes. Tom any time you wanna go again 1 on 1 I got game. This time I'll launch at 5K just to make sure ... bogging blows. Getting thrown back into my seat is so much fun.

Yeah, Those Subies are fast little cars! Especially with new chips and a bigger turbo. I wonder when the STI will be out?? May be I'll get that instead of the Honda Pilot?

I'm also waiting for the STI ... I want it in either red or white and Tom wants a blue one. We can then do mods together. EMS ( chips ) are definitely a good power mod however not too useful if not tunned correctly or if you don't have any aftermarket mods. I'm NOT getting a new turbo, IC, injectors, etc until I see what the STI will offer.
