Stage 3 STI?

So I was on my way back from a park in burbank after my brothers birthday with a friend passenger, and on my way back down the mountains a blue prior body (2004 maybe) STI rushes by me and slows down as if hes waiting for me. I'm not a fool to challenge an STI in a mountain, thats suicide. So I waiting till we got down to the straight roads. I follow him after a left turn and we line up next to each other, time to show him the GTO's good side. We both give the thumbs up and he floors it. Man that was the loudest STI I have ever heard with some MASSIVE backfiring. Also a very loud BOV. We got to the next light and I asked him whats mods hes got... He clearly said " Nothing, its just a stage 3 STI , nice GTO!" I said thanks same to you but I was confused. So the light turns green and Just to say I'm not great at taking off from a dig yet. He jumped on me but once I hit second we were neck to neck. I just started pulling on him by a little over a tire literally, then a car got in his way so he had to slow down. So we just played the Catch game a bit after that until he turned away. Ive ran my friends evo on a 10 mph roll, but this thing was nuts I actually felt like I was going to lose when we were next to each other... anyone know much about this stage 3 STI's?

That makes absolutely no sense. A stage 3 adds more power. I raced a guy with the stage 2 upgrade but I forgot the exact power he said he was putting out. I think it was like 300 awp.

That's a strange encounter...Those rides can be quite vicious, always try to take them from a 10 or 20 role, straight road only...

A friend has a stage one SRT 4, and I'm pretty sure I understand the popping you're talking about. The fact is that if stage 3 for the STI's stage upgrades is anywhere similar to the mopar ones, he would have ran all over a stock goat. I'm sure someone with more knowledge will chime in here though.

Lol, I really should change that. I was going to buy a goat when I graduated high school as I commute to school. I chose to wait until I finish school to put any debt on my head. I'm about two weeks out from finishing my second year, so I'm pretty psyched about that. Hope its alright with you guys that I'm still stickin around here even though I'm still drivin the Malibu.

I've been through the GTO, A C6, I've got the 03 Cavalier, and had a 1996 LT4 C4.

I'm kinda speaking for everyone, we like to have good people here, wether they drive a GTO or a Mustang or a Malibu or a Cavalier, as long as they add decent content.
