    Need your opinions on stage 2

    Guys:

    I've been reading a lot of posts about the stage 2 AP. I have a 04 WRX with a Helix catted dp and a Borla Hush. Is it safe to use a stage 2 map on my car? A salesperson in Harman Motive in Torrance, CA told me that it isn't safe until I get an Uppipe. (I got my AP from them) What do you guys think? Thanks.

    Your fine. No up-pipe necesary, although recommened (you'll see boost around 400-500 rpms sooner). All you need to flash stg 2 is an aftermarket DP.

    not sure on the year but if you have a catted up do not increase boost or eventually the cat will break up and go directly into the turbo and then time to spend $$ on a stage 4+
    have you ever been 4 bagged ???

    I had my 02 at stage 2 for about 2 years before I changed my uppipe. It held up fine, just had more turbo lag.
    My car looks just like this without the skirts and roof wing! Yeah baby!

    Go for it! Although, getting a catless uppipe will help. You are going to love stage 2! I know that I do.
