Stage 2 with an 06. 57K on the ticker, about 35+ at stage 2 I think. I drive like a ween, but I have been known to throw it down on twisties in 2nd and 3rd for twisty fun roads.

WRX trannys are like women.

Beat the living daylights out of it, slam it hard and crunch it a lot = not gonna be pretty and she won't be around long.

Give it good loving, run it hard once in a good while, use good lube and have some fun = can keep it in one piece and only have to replace the wear items.

In short, girls and trannys don't like skidmarks?

I guess :screwy:

83K total over 60K at Stage 2 power levels on my 02. No transmission problems (knocks on wood). Just change the tranny fluid every 30K and don't drive like an idiot all the time (some idiotic driving may be permitted).

Stage 2 at 110k

Only tranny problem was a new clutch needed at 109k...other than that, running beautifully!
