    Just the amount of time the 2.0 has been around?

    cause its more efficient on a 2.0. They get power all the way till 7k. With a stage 2 sti after 6krpm its useless. That turbo is just way too small for a 2.5liter. Try this with your cobb stage 2 if you want. 40mph roll against a car in 2nd gear, than 40mph roll against a guy in 2nd gear this time you in 3rd. You'll be surprised at the results.

    well let me ruin those results. I race my brothers 05 wrx with downpipe and custom exhaust up till stock catback. bot of us in 2nd he hangs around better. I'm at such a high rpm i dont use my torque. me in 3rd and him in 2nd i pull on him MUCH harder, many more car lenghts. I actually use my torque that way. Racing off a roll with a stock turbo sti sucks.
