I'm also thinking that my gearing might be a good match for the 50-100mph range.

I did line up for a few rolls against a built Dom3+E85 setup a while back when I was at lower boost. Our cars were pretty even, but mine killed his on spool. I think his might have pulled on mine a tad (when I was at that boost level), but unless he brake boosted a lot I would pull a car or two off the bat and he'd barely be inching back towards my bumper. Overall I'm very happy with my setup, but I'm always itching for more Need a new tranny first though...
That's interesting. This particular RSTi has Lachute performance headers on it which really seems to help with low end torque and spool. For the size of turbo that it is, it really seems to spool fast.

The WRX gearing is pretty awesome when you have a bigger turbo and a lot of power. You can really stretch out the power without running out of gear so quickly. Do you planning on upgrading your WRX tranny or going with an STi tranny if it breaks?
