    Stage II + uppipe WRX vs Carrera 4S

    Okay, so there's this older Honda prelude that's got a loud exhaust on it and is drivin down the road, and yells NICE RIDE, yatta yatta. I pull a little ahead and hear him purge his NOS...

    THen at the next light he pulls up next to me and says "You made me look all slow back there, that wasn't nice"

    So i'm like okay sorry whatever...

    and another light comes up. This light is after I watched the Carerra slow down and gun behind a car (for a thrill I guess)...

    So I'm rolling at like 5mph, he's stopped... and I downshift to first, and the light turns green. He punches it like a second after I do, and I hear his exhaust roar. He stayed about at my trunk all the way to ~80... then he had to turn

    But I know he was movin cus I was pushin my car pretty damn hard

    I know he probably would have raped me had he pushed it to it's max, but still. It was an adrenaline rush to run with a Carerra 4S

    I'm not saying I won, I'm just lettin ya know what happened

    Hey, sorry to steal the topic of the thread here, but I couldn't help but notice that you are running a Stage II + an up-pipe. I was wondering, what kind of map are you running on your UTEC? Is it the regular stage II or did you adjust it to compensate for the up-pipe? If so, do you know where I can find a map like this or how did you do it?

    Also, I noticed that you also are using a MBC. Since you have a UTEC, why do you still have the need to use a MBC? I didn't know that you could use both at the same time.
    Go to wrxhackers.com and look for the custom stage II plus uppipe map. All it is is added fuel down low to compensate for the quicker spool

    I'm not using a MBC, where'd you get that? Ahh, i see, I'll change my mod list now

    Sorry to be stupid here, but how do you get a stage II out his mods?

    Installed: (in order)
    Stock Resonator Box Removed
    Scorpion Axleback
    Kartboy Exhaust Hangers
    STi JDM Uppipe
    Eibach Prokit
    OCCSN Ground Kit
    TurboXS Catless Stealthback
    HKS SSQ BOV
    Blue Samco IC Hoses
    Kartboy Shifter Bushings
    UTEC
    Blitz SUS Intake

    I see the uppipe, axle back exhaust, bov, intake and utec....that makes a stage II kit?

    If you look closer, you can see I have a stage 2 setup, PLUS an uppipe.

    See the TurboXS Catless Stealthback ?

    ..it's actually going to be mated to the new RFL-Ti muffler, tomorrow. But it was mated to a Prodrive for a couple months

    Haha, I love how I haven't gotten an ACTUAL reply on the story, just on my mods

    So, about those mods.

    Sweet run with the 4S. I love those cars. I think he probably was pushing it.

    Well done, now go win the lottery and buy a 4S.

    Sounds like some good runs. I was able to run 13.3 @ 100mph with my stage 2 setup, and I didn't even have an uppipe. So a stage 2 WRX with an uppipe could definately hang tuff or even beat a Carrera 4 up to 100mph or so.

    I never did get a chance to race one with my stage 2 Setup, but I did race one from a roll with my stage 4 Setup. In that race I pulled away hard in 2nd and 3rd gear. I had a good 3 cars at 80mph. So I could easily see a Stage 2 with uppipe keeping up with one.
