Precision Turbo Subaru WRX vs. Whipple Mustang GT – Street Hits

November 23rd, 2023

We are taking it back to the streets (of Mexico) this evening for some import versus domestic roll racing action. Both these cars are modified to enhance performance albeit with vastly different forced air induction systems. Get a load of this machinery.

In the right lane is the 2003 Subaru WRX equipped with a turbocharged flat-four engine. From the factory, the WRX could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in an anemic 5-seconds flat and turn the quarter-mile in 13.7-seconds. Not very impressive by today’s standards. Current mods have made this Subaru a whole lot quicker. Performance components include a built 2.0-liter engine stroked out to 2.1-liters, an aftermarket intake and a Precision 6466 turbocharger with a massive air-to-air intercooler. The car has undergone some degree of weight reduction and it’s tuned to burn E85 fuel. He’s running a stock manual transmission. Slightly detuned for this race, the WRX is claiming 800hp to the wheels.

On the left is the Grip Garage 2014 Ford Mustang GT. The Mustang has also seen some weight reduction, including Hot Boy brakes. Under the hood, the engine has been swapped with a Gen II Coyote 5.0 V8 and topped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. The motor is basically stock with full bolt-ons. The Mustang is also running a Tremec T-56 manual transmission and claiming 800whp.

Time to get down to where the rubber meets the road. Buckle-up.
