    06 wrx stage 2 vs. 5.0 mustang!!

    It was my first race since going stage 2 and wow. The 5.0 probably wasn't stock because it looked clean and I saw one of those fake fire extinguisher thingies. HOpefully it wasn't a ricer 5.0. Anywayz, I ran him twice. First run from a dig, I launched on him hella badly and killed him, he might have not been fully ready. Second run from a dig, I killed him again; all I heard from his was about 3 seconds of tire screeching and I just launched on him....badly, I love AWD launches, it makes launching so much easier. It's hard to tell when he let off, because when u launch on someone so badly you don't know when they let off because your so farr ahead of them Anywayz, it was pretty ridiculous 3-7 car lengths ahead of him

    My best race day was I got picked on by two Mustangs one 05 GT and one 97 stallion just a reg. one. GT had a body kit thoe so he was in to it. Going down a long straight away, get to a light race win second light GT I won againe but he did start climbing when we hit 60mph but I usally never race past 60 unless highway. Just weird how on the same long stretch of road I got into to races one light after the other to diffrent lights.

    I am trying to go stage 2 also on my 06. What's it like in the 1/4 mile? Is it stronger at top like the old ej20's, or is it just a stronger midrange?
    My car looks just like this without the skirts and roof wing! Yeah baby!

    Well, considering I am only boosting at 12.2 psi and not anything higher... yes third gear is significantly improved and 4th is a tad better. Remember this is at 12 psi, almost 4 psi under what it's supposed to be.

    So it's suppose to be much higher? Are you sure? I mean the stock 06's are way lower in boost than the 05 and older because of the differing engines etc. If so, what's wrong with your car?

    I have an 06 WRX w/stage 2 and am boosting 15.5psi. I'm taking it to the track this weekend, so we'll see how it does. It has very strong midrange power.

    There's nothing wrong wiht the car. It pulls smooth as ever and hard. HOpefully its just the ecu that needs to learn with the AP so I can attain full boost.

    i dont think that is the reason. I have never flashed my ECU with my AP and not hit target boost right away. But hey anything is possible.
