My laser (same thing as GSX) was like 10-11 psi stock, not sure what a WRX runs for boost.

A Laser is like a GST not a GSX.

I have two friend, one with an STi and the other one with an EVO8, both stock. The EVO does 13.72 at the 1/4 mile while the STI does 13.69. I have another friend with and WRX and over $20K in mod's, see here ( www.TAVRacing.net ) and runs the 1/4 mile in 12.9 sec. Also I saw this other guy at the race track the other day runing an SVTF with the Vortex and a 50 shot N20 runing 13.19,13.23,13.15 all night long, while I had a best time of 14.89 with no FI.

If im not mistaken JE Pistons and Esslinger has the pistons for our cars.

Hope this help's.

How is a laser not like a GSX, GST is FWD, GSX is AWD, and my laser was AWD, wouldn't that make it same thing as GSX?

I thought it was AWD. I could dump clutch at 6000 and barely spin at all, and that was with boost. The made the laser RS in both FWD and AWD.

Another debate about SVTF vs. other cars.

Toms kit on an SVTF has run high 12's.

Around here SVTF's are $ 15-16k, thats half the price of an EVO or STi and $ 10k less than a WRX.

Compare apples to apples.

MTE, your trying to say your 02 SVTF runs a 14.89 with a CAI, ORP and cat back, how about a slip or 2 and maybe a video or some reliable folks who saw you?

With the vortech kit there is a slim chance that youll run with a stock EVO from a roll. And with either from a stop your dead. Its hard to match either of these cars without going turbo. And with the SVT's high compression youll need a new set of pistons if you wanna be making the kind of power to be right up there with an EVO or STI.
Absolutely not true. I was *easily* hanging with, I'm assuming, several stock EVO8's out at Buttonwillow earlier this month. And yes, that included down the front straights, with a passenger. From a stop... not a chance! AWD >>>>> FWD when it comes to launches. You'll need A LOT of power and sticky tires to overcome that.

As for aftermarket pistons... There are numerous ones out there. The SVTF uses the same size piston as the standard Zetec, so you have your choice of JE, Ross, Probe, Weisco, and a few others.

I plan to take evo's and wrx's with my duratec. After another few grand...I'll be pushing 250to the wheels all motor. After the turbo kit...I am expecting around a 200HP gain from the turbo. I am hoping for a 12second street car!
