    Also I'm new to the forum. I just bought a 2002 Aspen White WRX today, and I'm from the Bremerton area.

    I believe it just means its in the 2nd stage of the upgrading/mod'ing of the engine... stg 1 is like stock, 2 is catless and tuned and so on...

    i may be wrong though... so dont quote me =)

    Stock is stock. That's like stage zero

    Stage one is ECU reflash. It smooths out the entire powerband, plus gives you a modest power increase across the board.

    Stage 2 is ECU reflash plus downpipe. Most of the time (02-05 WRX) the uppipe is also replaced. Also, I did my full exhaust at this time. Some say you only need the downpipe done though.

    Seriously, if you have a 02-05 WRX, if it still has the OEM uppipe, you should replace it asap. Those years have a catalytic converter inside. If that breaks apart, it'll send that material into your turbo, destroying it.

    Hella!

    I think it would also be awesome If we could get the title of the thread tweaked slightly and sticky. Mods please that would rock.

    Also we should start Post pics up. I'll be taking some tomorrow.
