Hey guys this is my first post, I have some questions about a 2008 Subaru WRX. I am somewhat familiar to the after market, being that i have modded my jet ski with supercharger, IC, injectors and so on and making an impressive 270 hp. I am debating between a 2006 mazda speed 6 and a 2008 subaru WRX, i was wondering how much money would i have to put into each car to get in the sub 4.5-5 0-60 times low 13 or high 12 second car. I am interested in some other parts like short throw, and some kind of suspension upgrade. Any input is great. Thanks in advance guys!

If you are consistantly going to hard launch the car, that 5 spped in teh WRX is going to fail, the Mazda tranny may last longer but only because it is front drive only (which will not launch worth a crap). What kind of power numbers are you looking for? other things to think abotu is with the AWD you will be able to get better 60 foots, but you will have to upgrade the drivetrain or go STI, and it will still be hard on clutches.
