    Cool New member with an 06 WRX

    Hey everyone

    Was in the market for a good all around car that I could have some fun with and decided to get the new WRX. So far I love it - great looking car, nice interior and its quick stock. Its an 06 Limited Edition. Just a quick question - how much boost do the 06's run stock? And whats their limit with the stock turbo? Anyone been messing around with them much yet?

    If your wondering about my name, I also own a 500+ hp 83 firebird that I'm finishing up. It will be only drivin on weekends and nice hot days. It will also be my track car. The WRX is more like my daily driver and winter / business car. But that doesn't mean I can't have a little fun with it.

    Matt

    Congrats. I believe the stock boost on the new 06 is 11.5 PSI. I am at cobb stage 2 and love it. Cobb stage 2 puts you at about 15.5 PSI.

    Thanks!

    I was just visiting their website and looking at the Stage 1. I'm new to ECU flashing and what not. Is it pretty easy?

    EDIT: After doing some more reading and looking around on the messageboard, I found plenty of info to go on.

    Just beware of boost creep after going stage 2 on the new 2006 wrx. Search for some of my posts, Theres plenty of info on it. Cobb Accessport couldn't be easier to use.

    Greetings and welcome!

    Not sure of the 06 boost. I know the 2.0 liter engine is 13.5.

    damn, I looked in an 11 state area and couldnt find a single limited edition in the color I wanted. I would've had to wait 10 weeks for it. That wasnt so bad, but then I got an insaine deal on a normal wrx so I took that instead. Congrats on ur new car.
