    Not sure where you heard this information. Mustang dyno shows about 197 WHP from the 2008, which is about 4 WHP less than the 2006-2007. This explains the slower 1/4 mile times compared to previous years (stock 2008 traps at about 93 MPH @ 14.5 compared to the 96 MPH @ 14.2 of the 2006-2007)



    OP, if you are really concerned about acceleration performance, please check the following site:
    www.dragtimes.com

    I already did the homework, and found that a stage II 2006 WRX will do the quarter at 13.5 @ 101 MPH whereas a stock 2009 WRX supposedly does around 13.5 @ 102 MPH, so relatively similar. A 2002-2005 Stage II WRX will do about 13.8 @ 100 MPH in the quarter. Despite what has been stated, a stage II 2006-2007 WRX will NOT out-accelerate a stock STi, which will do the quarter mile in 13.0 @ 104 MPH.

    on the look side i tend to agree but i guess its all a personal preference, since i own a 07 i think its the best looking rex so far and some people find the 05 better, but the new ones damn, it looks like every other car out there and its not that original ,IMO

    i cant wait to see what they put out on a stage 2, must be something like a stage 2 sti, and you can get there much cheaper than you and i could
    I've seen a couple of dynos with stock 06-07 wrx's and they put down from 202-208whp so with a stage 2 it would be around 230-250whp...

    yeah, I've seen similar as well. On the low-reading mustang dyno, Cobb associates have rated a stock 2006-2007 WRX at 197 whp. Stock 2002-2005 WRX pulled in around 170 whp. w/ stage II tune, 2002-2005 2.0L puts down approx. 225-235 whp, while a stage II 2006-2007 WRX puts down around the same (230 whp) depending on the tune. However, I've seen dyno pulls on a stock 2009+ WRX that are around 235-240 whp (to me this doesn't make much sense considering that the STi puts down around 235-240 whp, unless the DCCD robs about 6% of drivetrain loss). I guess the only way to find out for sure is to have someone here put a stock 2009+ WRX on a Mustang dyno and report the numbers...

    EDIT:
    replace the output shaft and diffs with a 4.4 f/d ratio, and even a stock EJ205 2002 WRX can blast into the 12s, though you are sacrificing a lot of drivability

    I've seen some stock sti dynos (04-07) put down from 230-260 too... so I guess its all in the tune... I was reading a thread the other day and donkey's wrx ran a 12.45 in the quater with the stock turbo. I thought that was really impresive... I wish I lived in his area then he could give me some pointers..lol

    It really sucks that Subaru doesn't offer a factory stage II package. Hell, Chevy offers it in the Cobalt SS and Dodge offered it in the SRT-4 Mopar packages. Come on Subaru, stay with the times!

    I hated the drone on my Invidia TBE. At highway speeds around 3000 RPM it was just obnoxious... then again, I had a catless straight-through system without the resonator.

    bone stock 09's put down around 230hp at my dyno. its a dynojet but they tested it back to back with the mustang down the street. the dynojet reads within 0-5hp. its a really low reading dyno. even if there both off, i like just knowing the power increase from the work ive done. 1/4 mile is up to bat next because thoughs numbers are "kinda" universal.

    you cant kill a warranty. SOA has to prove that something you did made something break. if you went stage 2 and your motor blew they have to have prove it was the parts and tune. now they also cant void your warranty. if you put a new motor in and your radio blew, that has nothing to do with going stage 2 so they have to fix that at least. worst case, take your parts off, put your stock stuff back on and go to the dealer. they can tell you flashed the ECU to stage 2 but i really really dont think a stock STI pulling in there gonna go nuts. most dealers are pretty cool and have your back. plus motors and stuff really never break under normal conditions and a GOOD tune will make sure of it!

    TurboXS is loud but has no drone. Invidia and Borla make a quite exhaust. TurboXS is comming out with a quiter one and COBB and SPT are on the quite side.

    Uhm, I wouldn't roll the dice with warranty and Subaru.



    While in theory they have to prove that it was the part which caused a failure, you are the one who will have to pay an attorney to push through the process. . . and it will quickly cost more than it costs to replace whatever part broke.

    You may not be aware of the history with the WRX and Subaru not honoring warranties. It was talked about a lot back in the 2002-2004 time frame.
