2019 Subaru WRX STI (310 HP) vs Mitsu Lancer Evo 4 - how much advantage?

Quick question:

2019 Subaru WRX STI (310 HP) vs Mitsu Lancer Evo 4 - how much advantage?

From a spec-to-spec comparo, the assumption is that the 2019 STI will beat the Evo 4 (due to more hp, improvements made by Subaru to the 3rd gear, etc.)

But afaik, the Evo 4 is lighter than the 2019 STI.

If we were to race these two cars, would the 2019 STI easily out-smoke a Lan Evo 4 from the 90s era?

Straight-line, dig race, roll race, track driving, etc.

Thanks

What are the performance stats for the two 0-60, 1/4 , etc? Weight is a big factor along with gearing too , and most importantly the driver. Iíll tell you one thing regardless I would rather have the evo 4, will be worth more money. Do you have a evo 4 and if so please post some pics!

The STI stock is pretty slow man
98.5 mph trap is anemic to say the least
That's slower than a new v6 Camry o.0
It'll launch hard and is quikc from a dig, but that 25 yr old EJ25 is ancient
My friend drives one of those first edition ones with a stage 2 turbo back Cobb tune and it's slower than my Cobb ots beater mk7 gti
No joke once we both hit 70 I just walk away

These are weird questions. Don't get either car by the sound of it.

You're on Bimmerpost. The answer is "bring an F8X and smoke them both".
