oh my god. You can't beat an sti or an srt 4. If you are only pushing 180 WHP then the sti that comes now with 330 hp at the crank so should be pushing right below 300 somewhere at the wheels will kill your car. Lets not start this conversation again. anyway 20whp on those mods should be about normal. I would expect at least a little more but that depends on what brands you would put on your car.

lol.. 180whp? and your running 13.2? did you get like 400 pounds of weight reduction or something? a stock SRT will dyno 225-235 to the wheels.. an RSX is lighter, but your power curve is sh*t. you only hit that 180 mark at 8000 rpm.. an SRT will hit 200whp at 3800 and climp to 230ish by redline at 6200.. thats a very broad powerband incase you didnt realize.. im starting to wave the bullsh*t flag here now..

180 whp hp? I think your dyno gave you 180rwhp reading. anyways all that cam, intake, headers and catback don't mean much if you haven't done the heads... the heads is the biggest cork/bottleneck. so do the heads and you'll net 50hp all together.my 2 cents.

isn't that the point? To take the time and money to put more power into your car. More so than trying to beat cars that are faster even with all those mods....I mean you buy a RSXS not to try and out race everything with wheels cuz that just won't happen, but to build up your car for the fun of building a car.......not just get rid of it and get a "stock-go fast" car.....what's the fun in that???
