Well... Friday night I installed stage 2 on my 06 wrx. I have a cobb accessport (version 2), helix catted downpipe, and an invidia catback (with resonator). The sound is amazing!! An it is much much better than stock. So I am riding around town, feeling pretty good about myself haha, and I pull up to this, what I thought was a 3000GT. I pull out slowly, knowing that he is probably going to hit it because he had an aftermarket exhaust, so he punches it a little, and I proceed to put about a car length on him in first. Here is where things went bad... ha... he then decides to quit playing with me and put about a car length on me within seconds. Turns out it was a modded VR4. Well, he then turns off... so we kinda only raced to about 60 or 70... but he would have put a whoopin' on me if we would have kept going.
Overall though, I don't mind losing to a nice car like that. Stage 2 on the other hand is wonderful. I completely love the sound and it is a lot faster than stock!!
