02 focus zx3 vs. subaru impreza 2.5i

my friend has just got a new Subaru Impreza 2.5i wagon.
how would my focus which has...
-svt dampers
-tein stech springs
-ford racing front sway bar
-svt rear sway
-new nitto neo gen tires

so how would my focus handle compared to his impreza, i kno his car is faster then mine as it has 173 horsepower and awd, but how would they compare in the turns, im sure it will handle better then my car but would i be able to keep up with him...

When you get to one straight section, he will smoke you...but you can get a Turbo and then paired to that suspension you will smoke him.

and then he can get a turbo and smoke you again!

Actually... pulled these numbers off the subie forums for the 2.5i wagon:


7.9 0-60, 16 sec 1/4 mile

Only slightly faster than a non-modded zetec.

I just got a new 2.5i sedan and used to have a 00zx3 with KYB/Eibach setup and comparing the two, the 2.5 has quite a bit more acceleration between the corners but still cant push it as hard into the corners as my old zx3. I would say you would only have him if you were a pretty good driver and only in the turns.
