    best advice i can give you is save money and buy everything cash, or as much as you can. Careful w/ those credit cards.

    But anyway. You have the 2.5 engine, and those things are really torquey. Just w/ exhaust upgrades they pump out a ton of torque. throw in an sti turbo and you gotta be careful man. You know that already though.

    But definitely open up another savings account and call it "For when I blow my tranny account" (wow that sounds terrible)

    I'd say go with the VF39. I'm probably going that route next year. I have an 04 & I'm afraid of blowing the tranny too. Damn WRX trannies!

    i got an 06 too and i've heard that the VF-39 OTS map is easier on the tranny b/c of the torque curve. I've seen a lot of threads about a stage 2 06 losing 2nd or 3rd but i don't think i've heard of a VF-39 powered 06/07 blowing the tranny. anyone heard this? any 06/07 VF-39 powered wrx's chime in please.

    i was gonna post up a thread of my own but i'll ***** this one up casue it's about me getting owned also... (although it was well expected) anyway... i pulled up along side one of these in my little town yesterday...




    he revved it a little (i creamed a little) and the light turned green... he musta been newer at driving a fun car than me cause he procceeded to spin his tires while i got an early and shortlived lead... needless to say, he crept past me like a turtle with a space shuttle in it's ass and at the next stoplight gave the thumbs up and we drove off... i'm running a stock 07 wrx by the way... it was a fun run... although i knew the outcome before we started.
    yup

    no tranny worries till 500+whp in the srt4. the 05s have a touchy 3rd gear synchro tho that fails even in stock form. so pick up a 04. or the new caliber srt if it proves to be as stout.
