Yeah, i love it.. And my goal wasn't max horsepower.. i wanted something i could build mildly, and still be reliable. I've got a stage 2 setup ready to go on the car, once i get it back from the body shop, and after that, i'll just upgrade injectors and turbo to a vf39, get a protune, and be done power-wise.

As far as gearing, i've driven a few wrx's.. Stock, and some well modded. Stock, the gears feel like they take forever. Well modded, still take forever, but now your going way too fast too quickly by the time you wrap it out. Unless you like top speed. I particularly don't.
