    This is a nice setup on the 2.5. Very stealthy and virtually all of the same power as a full TBE at these HP levels. People have absolutely no clue how quick my car is for its size and class.

    Yes, sometimes I really kick myself in the ass for not getting the LGT. I just felt the WRX handled better and was also significantly cheaper which was a plus. How do you think you would do against a 2.5L WRX with the same exact mods? I'm thinking the LGT would have the edge due to the different turbo...

    Most I have seen have run mid to low 14's and the stage 2's are in the high to mid 13's. I dont think i've seen 12's yet though. The hard part is getting a good 60'. From a roll is where those cars are quick.

    so because i FWD car with equal power is still not pulling on me from a roll you think we need teh driver mod? odd... i think that speaks wonders for our AWD cars but i guess the only real race is on the track where AWD always has the advantage.

    It does. From a dig, the WRX has a better clutch and can launch quite a bit faster than the LGT though. Frumaroll...the LGT takes a quick lead and keeps pulling. At higher speeds, the aero of the LGT makes a pretty big difference too. Handling is ok...that is all I'll say. Better than most sedans but not as good as the WRX obviously. Having owned all 3 (WRX, STi, LGT) I'm most satsified with the LGT for my purposes. Fairly smooth ride, decent handling, comfortable interior, quiet, fast when necessary, and by far the best gas mileage. My only gripes are: stock clutch sucks, front end design has a lot of crevices to clean, stock rim offset could have been pushed out a bit (aka audi type stance) and the stock pads totally suck. I've got over 70K on my LGT now, most of it at stage 2 and have had only very minor issues with it to date. Only mods are cobb HF catted and wrapped DP, cobb Short throw shifter/ w/SPT bushings, air box resonator delete, Cobb front brake pads, motul high performance fluids, and the cobb stage 2 flash with 2.2 kohm resister mod. Car is a definite sleeper and has taken out new mustang GTs, the chrysler hemi cars (not the SRT models) and many, many supposed perforance sedans. They are all like or and I am like and sometimes

    Yeah, the wheel offset on the WRX sucks as well. The wheels looks way to tucked in, I hate it. Coming from a VW with a wide ass stance, wider rims were going to be my first mod until I learned about Stage 2.

    What minor issues did you have so far? In my '06 WRX I only had to get the weather stripping fixed. I want to go Stage 2 so bad but I'm weary of the transmission. I shift well, but drive hard. I know it will probably be fine but I'm scared to void the warranty on a practically new car.

    Do it (see my post above for minor issues). As long as you aren't power shifting/slammin' gears and doing high rpm launches using and letting the clutch pop out, your tranny will last the lifetime of the car. imho...it's mainly owner abuse/lack of skill that cause the trans failures. Not intended as a slur to those that have busted their trans, just based on experience. I've never busted a transmission and I've owned well over a dozen manual cars...most with significant hp under the hood. Honestly, you just have to "feel" your car. <be the ball>

    I'm really on the fence about it. I got a good deal on a used AP v1.0 and catless DP. I'm just a little worried about the WRX trans and my warranty, that's the only thing holding me back. I got a grow a set and just do it. I can't wait for the dealer to void my warranty at my next oil change.

    You have to take off the stock heatsheild or cut it up and modify the hell out of it so it fits. I think I'm just going to go with SPT or Cobb turbo heatsheilds, they're both around $50.
