    Judging by those #'s (which have to be taken with a grain of salt) I'm sure A cobb stage 2 wrx could suprise a "stock" evo or two.

    I ran 13.3 @ 100 mph with Turboxs stage 2. That is a turbo back exhaust and chip
    That will definatly give a stock EVO a run for its money

    By the way I saw my first EVO on the street in my area. I can't wait until we get a chance to line up.

    ye the cobb stage two has a turbo back and a reflashed ecu putting roughly 220 hp to the ground.....reflashed ecu=400
    turboback=1000 not a bad deal for mid to low 13's if u ask me

    ive got the equivelent of stge 2, ran 1 evo, i won all 4 races, but very close. he was stock. i think its a drivers race at that point. thats to say in a straight line only...

    Not to say a Stage II WRX and a stock EVO aren't closely matched, but I'm calling on the WRX numbers. I have yet to see a Cobb Stage II trap over 103MPH. Most are in the 97-100 range and a few with tons of supporting mods have hit 102.

    If you look at my sig, you'll see I have no reason to pump up the EVO. It's a drivers race off the line, but if the race goes long enough, my money is on the EVO.

    this is just my opinion, but neither one of these cars were "meant" to be drag raced. why race a car in a straight line when it is so well set up for cornering. auto-x would be a much better judge of whether a stage 2 could hang with an evo. that and at least that way the wrx's tranny wont blow up

    Jimbo- this is ot but are your wheel to fender gaps consistant with the prodrive springs? i installed my springs on my wagon today and from side to side on the front and back the gaps differ by 1/2".

    The gaps look even to me, but I've never measured. If you have an Imagestation account, you can see a side pic here

    Really I find this surprising, as a lot of people on the cobb wrx forums claim to have seen 215-225 hp,on the dyno, depending on the octane.

    I am secretly hoping thats the case, as I'm getting a reflash next week.

    I need to try this out. I'm Stage II, but I also have a couple other minor things.

    Are you going to leave your CAI in place for the reflash?
    I didn't know Cobb had a map for a CAI.
    I think the only aftermarket intakes Cobb will support are the Blitz and Perrin short rams.

    It seems like those numbers are high for a Cobb stage2 that doesn't have a custom dyno tune. Even with a dyno tune it seems a bit high but I'm probably thinking with crappy CA 91 octane.

    I talked to Cobb and they recommend a removed intake silencer for the Stage II, no intake (CAI or shorty). I have a removed intake silencer and a velocity stack, I asked ft that would be ok or if I should get a short ram, or the GPmoto deleter, or go back to stock, and they told me that the way I had it set up was probably best. Now I just need a TBE!!!!!!
