    If you're not willing to shell out the cash, you'll never make it that fast. Stage 2 WRX's are maybe as fast as a stock STi. So if you do the math, i'm not even sure this makes sense, you'd have to be stage 4. That's alot of work & it will not be cheap. Remember, you bought a Subaru, not a Honda. Don't skimp on the important stuff.

    I think a vf39 with turboback and all the supporting mods could do it along with a good protune. I have seen some vf39'd 06's putting down lots of power, enough to be competitive against a stage 2 sti's. Plus you have one less gear to shift

    But then again to be real that is a lot of power on the 06 tranny and with that much torque third gear could be bye bye

    A protuned VF-39 '06 WRX will edge out a Stage 2 STi from a dig with all things being equal. It certainly won't be a walk.

    This can be done pretty cheaply. Figure these numbers:

    Cobb AccessPort $450 (used version 1)
    Used VF-39 $400
    Used STi TMIC $150
    DownPipe $100-$400
    CBE $250-$500 (Or stick to stock CBE for free)
    ProTune ~$500

    Just be mindful of the tranny and have some fun...

    i dont' quite see how you can walk a stage 2 sti when you have teh exact same mod list as a stage 2 sti... i guess i'm just not seeing it unless you have a crazy tune compared to a sti with an off the shelf ap reflash, then maybe.

    5 speed is geared better, he has an EWG, and is protuned not a OTS map. The protune usually nets around 15-25 hp and simular torque. The EWG is also a huge help.

    It's no surprise that a protuned 06 can pull away from a stg 2 OTS map STI.
    0-60 faster then your first sexual experience.

    true, ots map suck ass.

    i'm running opensource in my sti too and i love it! it would be interesting to compare some ots stage 2's to tuned stage 2's.
