I have a 08 wrx, so i speak from experiance. save the money buy the sti. i really wish i would have. The tranny in the 08 wrx is way stronger then the 07 and older wrx, but it is still miles behind the 6 speed in the sti. the sti has the older style turbo and intercooler, where as the wrx (all 08 and up) has the legacy gt style intank manifold and intercooler. the 08 wrx has a mitsu td04 turbo (junk) the 07 and older legacy gt has a IHI vf-40. the 08 up legacy gt have the IHI vf-46. the 08 and up sti have the IHI vf-48 (great turbo, capable of upwards of 350 whp). the 09 and up wrx have a IHI vf-52 (good turbo). the 09 and up wrx also have stiffer springs and better valved shocks over the 08 wrx as well.
so long story short, it is up to you. you have to pay for it. If you are going to get the wrx, get the 09 and up. As a 08 wrx owner, i would recomend getting the sti. more_cowbell.gif

ok what about the lot south of the stadium, i dont think its owned by the stadium. i think the guy who owns the farm field owns that one. i think he just made it to make some big money for superbowl. that south lot wasnt there untill like 1 month before the superbowl and then i have never seen it used since. ps. i live right up the road so i see it like every day.

For the nth time, we have contacted the stadium. We can have the lot if we rent the whole stadium. Would you be willing to pay over $100 for an autocross event??? I didn't think so.

the ecu is stock from subaru the way the car was built at the factory. i just reprogrammed it and changed the stock boost controller duty cycles. in turn raising boost level by about +4-5 psi, but all stock hardware.

I am a get as much as you can on the rim guy, but does that newer bmw have stability control? if it does, you are going to have to keep the height of the tires the same front to rear. if not as soon as you start to move the car, the wheel sensors are going to see differant wheel speeds. so the computer will start to apply bracking force to try and correct the "slipage" thats not there.
Or you could turn off the vsc every time you get in your car, like i do. biggrin.gif

You can't compare factory boost levels between cars. Every car is given a base class on many different variables so don't compare apples to oranges.

Fact: All cars with a factory turbo (FI) must take a +5 point hit.

If you're ECU altered the boost level of your car after you were done, then you need to take points for it.

[/quote]


its more like comparing oranges to tangerines, but i get your point and i agree with you.
so lets go off the official rules. **this is excact word for word from the rule sheet**

1.3.c.Engine/Drivetrain:
etc...etc...
15)Aftermarket boost controller or modification/alteration of OEM vacuum lines that serve to fuction as a boost controller +4
16)Aftermarket or modified wastegate actuator, wastegate, or vacuum line(s) that serve to control the wastegate actuator function or increase peak boost +3
etc....etc...

1.3.f. No-points modification:
etc...etc...
43)OEM ECU/PCM rerogramming or chip (must use OEM ECU/PCM box/housing/hardware)


I am not tring to aguee in any way, i am just stating the rules. if i am supose to take a point hit for ecu reprogramming that raises boost levels thought resitance in the factory boost controller with the factory lines and fitings, then i will. But you are going to have to write a new rule that states that and then tell me how many points to take, because there isint one. so i dont know how many point to add. now that you fixed my first reg. mistake, i am now in the nxc. so i have 18 more points to add before i would need to move up to nxb. so is this "new" rule going to asess more then 18 points? if not then i would still be in nxc, so i dont need to change anything right?

Yeah, the lightpoles are a disaster at the fairgrounds. I live less than 1/2 mile from there and thought of it a while back. Then I remembered.

The super-cool place I've seen is that far north parking lot at University of Phoenix Stadium (pretty much right next to Glendale and the 101). It's huge and has no light poles. Must be overflow parking.

That said, I'm not complaining.



this spot is huge! i have been thinking to myself every time i pass it. "why dont they try for this place" there is also one south of the stadium it not as big but its really flat and clean asphalt. not poles at all! also if you into rally cross the over flow lot just on the west side of the 101 is hugh and pretty smooth and all clean dirt. no rocks of any other crap.

Ben is correct. When ECU mods/reflashes became a free mod in 2009, the 5-point penalty for turbo cars was added accordingly, assuming people would be changing boost with the reflashes.



After i read and reread the rules, this is what i was under the impresstion. because my tune done ulter my boost by +4psi. but i wouldnt think it would be fare if i had to take the 5 point hit for forced indution, then have to take another hit for upping the boost that was low from the factory. i mean look at the evoX, i realize they are only 2.0l but they run almost 20lbs of boost stock. my car only runs 11.5 stock, but i do have a 2.5l. so i dont know but the quoted statment above, is how i understood the rules after rereading them like 10 times. smile.gif
