Hey gents -
I'm considering picking up an '06 WRX TR, so I've been lurking the forums, running searches and checking out the online community for the past week or so. I have a couple of questions that I couldn't seem to dig up answers to and was hoping you guys could point me in the right direction:
1.) I've noticed a lot of members claiming to have a Stage 2 Cobb upgrade, but go on to list a different company's downpipe and exhaust. Are most of you guys buying the Cobb Stage 1 software and purchasing your DP + TBE elsewhere, or is the Cobb software actually different for a stage 2 upgrade?
2.) I love the deep, snarly rumble from the turbo back exhausts, but am concerned about the noise level. Of the exhaust clips posted, I seem to like the TurboXS w/ high-flow cat the best. Does the addition of a high-flow cat to a TBE soften the harshness of the noise output? If so, I would just buy the Cobb Stage 2 package that came with a high-flow cat.
Thanks for your time, guys and hopefully I'll be spending more time around here!
