My family recently bought a new TL-S Auto (trust me I TRIED for the 6 speed) and its quite the porker. It is, however, a very quick car. I could see it eating a stock WRX. I do think my stage 2 is quicker, but I've never been able to put the two side by side. I've always thought it'd be an interesting match, but I think a stage 2 wrx just has the upper hand.
