    The first time, the deers shoulder flanks hit the fender, his head hit the windshield, and it spun along the passenger side.


    The thing that really sucks is the paint. It never adheres correctly after an accident like that, thats why I have so many rock chips now. Not that Subie paint is all that great to begin with.

    And 140,000 miles running stage 2 is pretty good! How often do you get into the power though?
    As much as I can. I don't drop the clutch anymore though.

    Well you had to replace that front passanger side fender and rear passanger side door didnt you? I mean from the looks of it those wrinkles in the sheet metal would be impossible to smooth out.

    oh, yeah. I was referring to my drive train being original. The sheet metal is not original. This will be my third left fender.

    That's not so much an issue in '02-'03 MY vehicles. As a matter of fact, I think that really became a problem with the 2.5l generation of WRX, '06 I believe.

    Really? Thats weird because i have been reading all over the place that people with 02 rex's were having major issues with boost creep after installing the catless dp and 3 inch exhaust. Some guys even said they were seeing as much as 21 psi in third gear at 5800 rpm's. I would be surprised if those engines lasted longer then a few months with those kind of numbers.

    I kind of agree. Porting it wouldnt be to hard, but then trying to adjust my wastegate acctuater arm to compensate for the bigger port would be difficult and dangerous. That is why i sit where i do. Dont know if stage 2 is cracked up to be as safe as everyone says it is. Timber you just sound like you know how to drive your machine! kudos for 200k miles on a stage 2 wrx!
    If i had another vehicle, or a bunch of time and money, this wouldnt be much of a concern to me.
