Yes. Stock WRX is 5.4 sec 0-60 (if memory serves, it is possibly quicker), WRX STi is 4.5 sec 0-60 (faster than an E46 M3).

Yes it was faster.

Few weeks ago, I had little fun with WRX wagon. We took off from stop light and obviously he was not the master of manual tranny and we were neck to neck until he was pulling away slowly. He was about 1/2 car ahead of me and decided to slow down while I kept flooring. Well, I was going about 85 on 45mph limit.

I didn't realize that FX was one heavy SUV.

Yeah, not even in the same ball park. Even 45 will get dusted.

Actually, unless you're an exceptional driver, an automatic will be faster with a turbo as the shift will happen fast enough to prevent spooldown. If you're really really good with a manual, you can overcome this.

Also, the turbo on the wrx isn't that big nor is the lag.

I sold my WRX to get my FX35, the WRX is much faster even with automatic.

Sorka is dead on.Fast as ****,small turbo for quick spool and a deadly car...no fun for us or many others!

Mods are tricky but their are ECU's and exhaust systems and bigger turbos with the ECU change...like you needed to hear that!!
