Right as I merged onto the highway I see these bright blue headlights behind me. I'm thinking wtf is that? There is a bit of traffic and I was stuck in the right lane (2 lane highway) with everyone on my left passing by. I found my break right in front of the car with blue headlights..

Well he gets right on my ass, so I'm like oh yeah here we go. He's on me for about 2 miles and finally the traffic clears up, I switch to the right lane and he flys right by me, a yellow WRX! Although this wasn't an STI, it had some work done to it. Every time he shifted it blew a nice flame out the exhaust :eek2:

So I pull behind him and ride his ass, throw into 3rd at about 75. He pulls over, downshifted (another nice blue flame, looked sweet cuz it was at night) and I floor it. I started to creep up and I put his front fender at my doors, shift to 4th and walk away a little better. Put him about 2 cars back by 130... that little fucker was quick!

I thought I was gonna murder him from a roll, seeing as they have AWD and all. But he did pretty good... make me wonder if he'd beat me in a 1/4 mile :cool:

Mods are - SLP Loudmouth, MAF, Smooth Bellows and Lid
01 Black Trans Am, M6

dont think he'll beat in the 1320 but a few more mods, when ever possible, is a good insurance policy.

About the flames, do all WRX do this? Ive seen a black one do the same thing....is that to much fuel in the tune or un burned gases in the exhaust?

I've seen numerous turbo cars that have done this...especially my buddies' RX7s. One of them told me it was because he had it tuned rich, but who knows...

To the original poster, nice kill. I would like to line up against one one of these days.

My 5-speed procharged truck used to shoot flames between 3rd and 4th. Now that it's tuned right, it doesn't do it :ripped: .

A lot of the Supra guys do it. For a WRX to keep up would take a big turbo. My cousin has an 02 with a VF22 and I can still walk him from a roll. I know that isn't a very big turbo, he put down 285 after his tune. I was only at 16lbs. He wouldn't even try when I suggested me turning up my boost :naughty:

I think the flames happen when they take the cats off. The unburned fuel in the exhaust catches fire. I guess its because turbo cars run really rich from the factory.
