You guys should go and take just a regular Wrx out for a test drive.
I think you will be very impressed. The power is there. Then you guys might be a little less biased towards the subaru.
The stock Wrx has been known to crack the 14sec mark.
As for the STI, which I have been in the car first hand, has loads of power, not one bit of turbo lag. I think alot of you would be surprised with the amount of power the thing has.
For the STI weighing in at around 3250lbs, All Wheel Drive, the thing feels like it has more than 300Hp.
