Nice kill. I've killed about 3 myself (with just headers, cai, and cat-back at the time.....would just slay one now but haven't seen any since new engine build). Out of the hole, unless you have sticky ass tires they'll put a car to car and a half on you quick. It doesn't take long though, you reel them in, pass them up, and just keep on going.
If you are already at highway speed and get up beside one and you both take off, it's not even close, you just walk away from them. They don't have the torque to plow through the air at speed like we do, nor the horsepower to keep them there. I've had a similar experience with and Evo and a SRT4 (no offense Bluebeast).
I haven't come across the new body style STI yet (the fugly ass one that looks like a crossover/hatback/souped-up minivan-thingy. I've heard they have similar performance to the boxy body style with the giant wing on the back that we're all used to.
