What mods does a WRX need to run with a stock STI?


TBE/Up/Down Pipe

with
Ecutek or Cobb Stage 2


Should this be able to stay even or beat a stock STI?

to run with an STI in all aspects, the wrx needs some fairly heavy work. TBE/UP, AP will have you fairly close. but to make up for top-end and such, a stageIV turbo would do well... VF30 or VF35

on the other end, the STI still has better breaks, better suspension, etc.... so you compete with an STI, the wrx would need all of that also. but speed wise, STI's run lower 13's cosistantly and not many people can get that out of a wrx without going to an upgraded turbo....

STI=better buy for the money

Judging from the context of his question and remarks, I'm pretty sure he's just talking about straight-line performance. I think engine management, uppipe, and TBE gets you close, but maybe not quite there. Could be a driver's race at that point.

Top end wise I can pull on a STi. I am running Cobb's Stage 2.5 with the VF34 91 octane map.
I think I could, too. (Cobb Stage 2.5, VF34 93 oct).
But I'm pretty sure that if one caught me while I was at lower revs, it would eat me at first...

Ahh.....just side step it at 7000rpm:p If your trans doesn't break, you'll get him:D
