    No '09 left over here, I've decided to wait until next year to watch how the engine problems are handled(if the bugs get worked out)and the Charger will be paid off! I may just get an STi then? I don't see the $10k extra being worth it but maybe the '11 or '12 will get a little more power?!

But yet Perrin is advertising their stage two: http://http://www.perrinperformance....ry=62&model=23

    Is the 68 ft lbs and 46 whp just inflated numbers(fake) for sale purposes or is Cobb's tune just that mild( Perrin has it's special map with their tune which states it's more aggresssive)?

    Also are up pipes a good mod power wise?

    I'm sorry for all the questions but I don't want to buy stuff the ECM is going to cancel out or whatever.

    Once again Thanks for any and all help!
    Cobbs site does not say at 19 hp gain at all. It say a 19% gain in HP. So take your stock crank hp and multiply it by .19 and you get a 50 hp gain over stock.

    Perrins dyno graph are at the wheels. Thats a pretty close estimate of what you will be making at the wheels.

    I just noticed you have an '09 with the Perrin stage one. So it must be a big difference? have you been to the track(any before and after timeslips?)? Once again Thanks for the help!

    nope, ive never tracked any of my cars. i dont believe in the wear and tear.

    But i can assure you going stage 1 or 2 is well worth it.

    Honestly the only difference that I have heard of so far is the 2010's have an extra emblem on the back... other than that I haven't heard of any other changes.

    I just bought a 2010 wrx and got the stage 2 cobb kit, and my parts guy was like without the access port i shouldnt put the downpipe in yet because your tuning the exhaust with no engine tune. im getting my stage 2 kit installed as soon as it comes out in a couple weeks, i'd wait instead of possibly messing stuff ex... turbo
