How does stage 3 ihi power compare against top end Evo's such as an FQ360 or an FQ400??

Im talking about a typical encounter on a dual carriageway etc where traction isnt really an issue.

Just noticed this thread form the main page,
Having not driven one of the IHI's only seen them go, but had a good few goes in nearly every evo made, I recon they would do really well or else pass the evo!

Had a couple....one wouldn't play.... and one... well... he lost... lol

Cant say for sure which EVO's they are....but they were the new'er shape.

Going on Stats I would say IHI would do the FQ360.... as for the FQ400 I dunno....

Power to weight ratio anyone?

even mine when had k03 on was as quick as fq360, only once rolling though.

i'd say ihi would hammer them!!

hoping k03s will kill them off too :lol:

I put this to an Evo 6 GSR owner who simply laughed and said no chance.

Some people are blinkered i guess lol

The fq360 MR or whatever it is is now the quickest standard evo you can buy. It is faster than the fq400 as they raised the torque so the 0-60mph is now under 4 seconds and mid range is alot more powerful, just generally a better drive than the fq400. Would have said that would be quicker than an ihi but the others well im sure some of the ihi crew can inform us!

I got creamed by an EVO VII when I was in the Blue Stg2 Ibiza.....but the IHI pisses all over the Stg2... so I reckon the IHI's could do it... but then again, IHI is quite an open power range... say from early 300's through to 360+...depending on mods, and internals etc...

My k03s stage 2 sat on a FQ300 with two other people in my car up to silly speeds till he pulled over.


BT Ibiza would be close to a 400 i reckon.

Ive had the lower end model no worries, the guy pulled up next to me at the lights with his muscle top and 'designer' shades on (vin diesel look a like:lol:).

He beat me off the lights but I got infront and pulled on him, got to 7oish and then let him pass:redface:. Im up for a bit of banter on the road but not doing stupid speeds.

Dont know how an IHI would do against a 360 or 400, Ive yet to see what an IHI Ibiza can do

From a start the EVO would go... hence why I wonder if the IHI would struggle, does it have enough power to catch up and pass a 360 or 400? I dunno....

Rolling start the IHI would get my bet.....

to 60 i would of thought the evo would of beat it , as the evo is something like 4 seconds to 60 , fq340 - fq400 is quicker , if they are beating ferraris and lambos that is saying something , so i would of thought the ihi ibiza wouldnt of had a chance , as they spin upto 3rd gear , an the evo doesnt spin at all 4wd

Ive seen a 280bhp (apprrox) 2.0 turbo corsa beat a evo 6 running 350bhp from still, evo kept with him till the corsa hit 3rd when he got more traction. was fun to watch

Kills em...

I do believe Madmile and Custardcupra have had a fair few plays with them and never really found them that quick... the 400's are quiet laggy thats where the IHI Ibiza had the edge on the 400. The new 360MR's could be fun though let's hope there's some at the 'Ring :D
