Yesterday at work going to lunch, a 21-year-old coworker got all excited about a WRX that was idling and said he would like to race him.

I said, "you would get beat big time, that car has a turbo and all-wheel drive, your car (Scion TC) has no turbo and is front-wheel drive."

I walked over as he was asking the owner about the car, he asked if it had one or two turbochargers, the guy didn't know and I said probably one as it's a 4 cylinder.

The owner has just gotten it and the temporary license plate said it was 2016, he popped the hood and I noticed the intercooler right above the engine, and the air scoop on the hood must ram air through the intercooler.

Guy said it runs 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. I didn't ask how much horsepower or torque or vehicle weight was.

Later I googled 1999 C5 6 speed 0-60 and saw that it may have been 4.5 seconds?

I'm sure that would beat a stock non Z06 C5?

A lot depends on the driver and the conditions. Driver being te same. It boils down the how long a run, What surface or kind of race. Same conditions. The driver also makes a big difference. Then you are talking. How hard will each push the car. The book numbers do not always show a black and white answer.
