wow so basically aprotuned stg 2 sti is as fast as ur 02 with vf34? and a vf 34 is more than a stg 2 06. yeah i think once u go stg 1 or 2 in the sti the reg. wrx go bye bye. but i will say the 06 is amazing and a great bargain. my roommate has one and all i can say are those diffs, brakes and tranny had better be worth the extra money (in the sti).
