    Stage 1 is 270hp and 285lbs tq at the crank with 93 octane. Stage two is 285hp and 310lbs tq at the crank with 93 octane. I'm not sure what your quarter mile times, or top speed would be.

    Whats your feeling on how it effects the engine. IE am I setting myself up to have a blown engine or does it keep within specs so to speak.
    Also whats the difference between this engine and the one in the STI?

    Cobb is great. I've run 3 different stages of their tune in my WRX with zero problems.

    That sucks about you being old and all. Hope you live to post again!

    Thanks for the input. Glad to know there are other old folk out there that like to go fast
    Should be fun to take a Legacy that looks like a sleeper make it alittle quicker.
    Any other words of advice.

    Thanks Everyone,
    Looks like the way I'll go is with a Cobb stage 1 for awhile and see how that works then maybe do Stage 2 later.
    Thanks for all the advice, keep it coming. As I live in So. Colorado on a 5 mile dirt road, I don't have a good knowledgable dealer near me. Everything will be done in Boulder at FlatIron Motors.
