You can push 400 on stock internals with a good tune.

Don't boost your first car to be a 10 second car. You'll fucking die.

I just want to beat evos, sti's on the highway, or from 3rd gear pulls...will the peakboost kit with the t3/t4 work or would i need the GT30R?? (plus clutch, and LSD)

yes, its a very noob type question. there is more to it than this, i just want this simple question answered so i can make other decisions.

1. Racing on the highway is for douchebags with deathwishes, take it to the track.
2. You need a power goal, not a "I wanna beat this car" goal because remember that OTHER cars can be modded too.
3. The most important mod is the driver mod.

ya great thanks, dad.

ok well, negating the fact that sti's and evos are AWD, how much power would be required in the rsx to pull away from these two stock cars in the quarter mile, particularly after a somewhat equal launch at the track. Secondly, would this power level in the rsx be attainable with a simple all motor set up of boltons and kpro, or would a more advanced set up be required such as forced induction. If in fact forced induction is required, would a T3/T4 suffice, or would a GT30R or bigger be needed.

A) he is trying to not only prevent you from hurting yourself, but also innocent bystanders that drive on the highway.

B) No one can give you an answer. You are being extremely vague. stock WRX? 10000000awhp wrx? All motor DC5s can take stock subbies but not others...

C) Certain t3/t4 turbos will make the same exact horsepower as GT30R. Gt30R just means it is a garrett bb turbo with a 76 or 71mm compressor wheel.

No problem son. You do have the mental capacity of my 3 year old. What's the point of racing from a roll? There's no skill and the person with the most money (or least sense) wins. If you want to win from a roll go get a tank of naaaaaawwwwwzzzzzzzzzz. If you want to win at the track go buy a RWD or AWD car.

ok thanks you two ^ I dont think i was being that vague, i was clear about comparing the rsx vs. a STOCK subie. And yes, exceeding the speed limit on the highway is very dangerous and must be a behavior that is not expressed. I do want to put my car on the track, sadly my state is horrible at letting people drive on road courses, which is what i would really like. but my question is answered now, so thanks. Its nice to know an all motor DC5 can take a stock subie, and i did not know a t3/t4 can make same hp as GT30r, but i am assuming the garrett 30r bb turbo is a much higher quality and efficient turbo.

I don't think you fully comprehend how vague it is to compare a specific turbo like a GT30R to a "t3/t4" turbo.

ya i probably dont, i have never had either, i dont understand trim levels and housing sizes or all that stuff very well, i read about it, but still plugging it all together. I just read and try to figure out which ones are strong and which kits are crap. sorry.

Go with a precision "SC" turbo or a garret dual bb if you want anywhere from 350-600 horsepower. If you only want 300, go with a greddy kit with 3" turbo back exhaust. The ball-bearing garrett's will decrease lag signifigantly.

Not well. Several turbo guys are going to be doing some cryo treatment to the gears. It will be interesting to see how that works out. I'm probably going to be doing this before I put sticky tires on this summer so i don't blow my tranny. Right now I'm on stock wheels with stock all season tires so I'm not worried about blowing anything.

I'd go s/c before I went greddy. PPG's are expensive. If you can shell out 4 grand for gears, more power to you, but if you do, I'd go all out pb/full race 450+hp

If you have to ask about needing headers with a turbo kit, you have a lot of research to do.

ok, so i've got my '05 Type-S, and i want to go forced induction. Im not sure if i should go Peakboost setup with a GT3076R, or go against the grain and run the Kraftwerks Rotrex Supercharger kit.

Only downfall ive seen so far on the Rotrex is it requires an AC-delete. Ive been trying to find out if there is a way to do an AC-relocate so i dont have to get rid of it.

anyone have any input on which they think would be more bang for the buck?
