Default F10 550i vs 2015 Subaru WRX - 06-05-2017, 08:04 AM

My friend has a COBB AP/Bren tuning PRO tuned 2015 Subaru WRX w/manual tranny. His mods are down pipe, TGV delete, EGR delete, muffler delete, E85/93 mix (E50) and COBB/Bren Tuning PRO tune (~330whp/ 360wtq). My car is a '12 550i with JB stage 1 tune on 93 octane (~420rwhp), I may add a race gas mix.

Anyone with a F10 550i ever ran a 2015 WRX?

What do you all think the results will be?

The WRX is 1000lbs lighter, ~3300lbs compared to my ~4400lbs, but Im not sure what they run at the track.

Don't race him from a dig. I live in Colorado and the streets are littered with tuned STI's, so I've had quite a few run-ins with WRX/STI's.

I have an '07 e90 335i with a JB4, **'s, DCI, and 30% e85 and traction from a dig is a bit of an issue even with the Michelin PSS'. Let's just say that its been an embarrassment to myself any time I've gone from a dig against these AWD cars.

Play it safe and make him run you from a 40 roll. You'll probably put a few cars on him. I've destroyed upgraded turbo STI's from a roll, and never lost to a single one.

That's true. I didn't consider that the warmer roads and heavier weight probably allow your tires to hook a lot easier. Those STI's are still pretty darn quick from a dig due to their high rear differentials.

I destroyed my friends 15 WRX(CAI/Nvidia Catback/Cobb) in my N55 w/ JB4 535i that was otherwise stock at the time. In a 550i you should be bus lengths ahead.

Just have fun and be safe. Scooby snacks aren't a threat to tuned BMWs in this day and age!

Subaru STI comes out in 2004 with 300hp which was very quick back then. Fast forward to 2017 it still has 300hp so now days just about anything sporty can hang if not beat them. They're a joke.
