    I'd expect a stage 2 to rape you below a 100, but anything over that I'd think you'd start pulling against a WRX with stock gears. Esspecially when he shifted into 5th.

    I wouldn't say "rape" below 100mph.... from a dig yes, but the VQ35 has amazing torque, and considering the maxima is lightly modded I wouldn't use "rape" as the appropriate term.

    with those mods he's maybe getting 8-10 to the wheels. Have you ever drove one of those from a dig, stock tires are horrible no traction. I was impressed with the torque though.

    more like 15-18whp....and rape is not the appropriate term either....I raced another friend of mine with a straight stage 2 WRX (not stage 2.5) from a 10mph roll....and I beat him by 1.5 car lengths by 85mph with no intention of him catching up either...so I wouldn't call WRX's raping my car below 100...the more appropriate term is from a DIG

    from a dig, yes..... a stageII rex in the 1/4 is good for 13.5 or so with a good driver, and a 6spd maxima with his mods is good for 14.3 with a good driver. Take away the awd launch though, and as long as there is no "dig" race, starting anywhere over 10-15mph and the wrx will not "rape" the maxima.

    obviously u don't know too much about maximas....first u don't know how much we gain out of mods....and second u assume the outcome of races when u probably never even raced a maxima.....and no don't try to lie and say u have a friend with a maxima or you've raced one before....becuz there aren't many maximas in the first place and if indeed u knew someone with a maxima...you would have mentioned it earlier....so i already know u have almost no experience with one....

    cobb stage 2.5 is a new turbo and supporting fuel mods, if you didn't know that. its the slightly lesser equivalent to a txs stage 4. i just say lesser cause it is slightly more limited in tuning and possible turbo applications.

    I agree. A Maxima with intake and catback can't stand up too well to an upgraded turbo WRX. Not only that, but some of you Maxima guys still have a little wheelspin at 15mph. A Cobb 2.5 WRX is fast...deal with it.

    he doesn't have an upgraded turbo....lets make this straight once and for all...

    I have two friends with WRXs....one with a silver 03 and one with a black 04....

    the black 04's mods are in the first page of this thread....he is not a straight stg 2 becuz on Cobb's website....a stage 2 is turboback+AP....he has those two mods and many more....that is why i call him a stg 2.5, cuz he really isn't a straight stg 2.....

    my friend with the silver one has a TXS turboback and UTEC....he has it tuned very well becuz he spent countless hrs on it....me and my SILVER friend raced from a 20mph roll before....twice too....both outcomes are me pulling 1.5 car lengths by 90mph with no intention of him pulling on me.....in other words...I beat him everytime we go at it from a roll.....

    This is what my comment was in reference to. Go back and try again - it's pretty clear.

    just cause he spendt endless hours on it doesn't mean it is good. generally utec>ap. yeah i know what you mean with the stage 2.5 stuff, but cobb numbers theirs funny.
