i was wondering what sort of power out put you would need at the wheels to be able to slog a wrx or even a skyline can it be done, and what would have to be done, say for an ea 5 speed

Re: performance mods to be able to beat wrx

One big turbo making 500rwkw that can run the quarter in 10's should do it. You would want a toploaded if staying manual.

Without going forced induction you wont be able to slog cars that do 0-100 in low sixes standard.

Re: performance mods to be able to beat wrx

yep, get your own turbo and your most of the way there.

If we are talking about straight line you need a turbo or SC, if were talking in the corners then it's all a bit harder. IRS and a bucket load more grip would be a start....and the turbo to make sure you can keep up in between.

Yeah as much as I love to bag all those kids and their jappas, some of the top end performance Jap cars are damn quick

(not that I would ever admit that to my mates)

Re: performance mods to be able to beat wrx

What about a Jim Mock Dev5 S/c kit? That would be nice even a new BA XR6 turbo would have trouble WRX's are bloody quick.Be prepared to spend lots of money.
Good luck though.

Trade it in on a sierra cosworth.... then fiddle with that.

Are you talking about a stock WRX/Skyline or a modified one?

Re: performance mods to be able to beat wrx

upgrade your diff to a 3.9 LSD; forced induction would be an easy way to do it, but if you are taking guards off your car (as per your sig), keep going with that ...

I thought a motoring mag got 14's out of a datto 120y at the strip... they started with a complete car, and ended up with no panels, glass, just an engine, chassis, 1 seat, and enough to make it run down the quarter. The engine was a stockers, the power to weight at the end was very good.
