    What way should I go

    Looking at either going stage 2 on my 11 wrx or getting a nav system.. Thinking I'd go with alpine S920 hd if I was to go that route. Give your guy's input and what mod you would jump to next.

    Does your mobile do navigation? I just use my iPhone.

    I do have a iPhone and a Garmin mounted. The biggest thing that would persuade me is the DVD player for the wife on the road trip.

    Personally, I wouldn't get a dvd player where the driver could see it for safety reasons. I got a tablet loaded with games and movies for everyone else.

    With stage 2 what should I expect performance wise? I didn't notice a huge difference in stage one. I was actually a bit disappointed

    If you're interested in navigation, you need to be looking at Kenwood units, which use the Garmin interface. I'm not a fan of Alpine/Pioneer navigation.

    Doesn't the alpine also use Garmin? I am a kenwood guy too but all the reviews were worse on the kenwood then the alpine that I was looking at

    id stay catted and you can run a downpipe and whatever intakes are supported by their tunes if youd like. but a downpipe and tune you will definitly notice the power. stage 1 tune i didnt feel much but stage 2 your buttdyno will sense the power increase. if you can id take it to a tuner, but if not and want to keep the AP itll be just fine just pull some logs after the install and post em here so members can make sure everything is alright. some cars dont like the AP tunes. nav would be nice but its 2013 use youre smart phone lol
