After about 4000rpm the STI leaves the Evo in the dust.

BTW, what are the largest tires you think I could get on this car? What brand should I get? I want them to be indestructible...

I would have to say its a pretty even race stock for stock. It all depends on the driver at times too.

I'll give you that. Same driver however... Less weight and more power gives the STI the advantage.

Yeah...STI to EVO....You are working a LOT with driver factor. I've driven both- not on a track but I got a WAY better feel outta the STI.

And saying "gain more hp when modding" is a WICKED vague statement...I can make my Taco gain more hp then a Honda tunre frame....but doing more stuff to it....or by using better parts...etc etc etc

I've also built a fair bit of my buddies STI....so I guess maybe I'm partial...

EVO vs STI... EVO ftw

Evo9s are more mod friendly than the STIs. That is a fact... exhaust, mbc, exhaust cam, tune and you are well in the 11s with a 9.

My Dream car tho:

The Nissan GTR

Check out this lap around Nurburgring!!! 7:29 with 2 wet corners

Thank you, put the same mods on each car and you will see that the evo will gain more hp between the two

Sorry you can't sway me. I'm a boxer engine guy.

I would use this as a base for my ultimate Taco build. 4.7 V8 shortbed access cab. Add a set of Dynatrac 60's, 37" tires and some armor.
does anyone know what kind of rims are those? also what kind of flares?
