    Thanks Chris. I think you have to drive a C6 to know what its all about. These things are monsters. At least you have a vette to drive once a while (that''s if your dad is willing to hand over the keys).

    As my best friend said after driving my vette, "This thing is NOT for a little kid" (maturity wise). I know I could not handle having my vette when I was 19. I can barely handle it at 29 right now.

    The WRX is an awesome car for a 19 y/o. Good luck with yours.

    With the WRX and STi, after stage 2 there are too many variable options, so we pretty much disband the "stages". Do you have an 02 or 03? and which transmission code do you have? How much previous abuse has the car been through? How long has the car been stage 2? These are all questions I'd ask before even thinking about a turbo upgrade.

    Just saw you have a 2002 (in your sig) I wouldn't recommend doing anything beyond stage two unless you have ~ 5k for a transmission rebuild or 2k for a used transmission....

    Itd be a quick way to get to stage 10...


    You know... stage 10 where the motor is in the garage in millions of pieces and the tranny is somewhere in the middle of town where it grenaded along with the motor...


    (Im just playin man, answer Kevins questions and we will get you squared away.)

    Its an 02. The car was stock for 135k miles and has only been stage 2 for about 3k miles. Im the 3rd owner. Its got original motor and tranny as far as i know. Its runs perfect, but i went from stage 2 sti to a 02 wrx, because i couldnt afford insurance on another sti. I just want a little more outta the car. I was gunna do a compression test before i put a 16g on it. Would i be making a mistake?

    transmission won't handle it buddy... too much torque The 2002 transmission is known for not handling turbo upgrades well.

    Alright. I was gunna just get some headers, an intake and a protune for now. Would a used sti tranny be my next best investment?

    Definitely. I'd save for the transmission right now. Don't waste money on the intake, headers, and protune. That's about 1500 in and of it's self. All money that could be put towards that tranny.

    It is the way I would go. Dont get headers, you can get ported ones. There are select few that actually do any good.. IMO

    STi tranny (including dccd)
    STi rear driveshaft
    STi rear axles
    STi rear hubs/brakes

    If it were me Id also go STi front brakes because then you dont have to run 2 different wheels/patterns
