Default Stage 2 Build

This may not be the right place, if so please direct me. I have a 2012 WRX, with AP V3, and Invidia Q300 stage 1. I want to have a stage 2 setup. What would be the best/most reliable stage 2 setup to have? Please list what you have done.

For stage 2 you need a aftermarket downpipe. Either Catted or not.

Then I'd suggest bulletproofing your top mount and getting a good professional tune (a protune since using your accessport).

Then you are set.

I will be getting an Invidia catless dp next week. As far as ECBS and BC is that necessary? I will be doing a Forge BPV. What do I need for the top mount to be bullet proof?

Do not get a bpv or a bov. Down pipe. Then tune. Done. Your stage 2

The less "garbage" your throw on (bov bpv etc.) the less there is to go wrong.

Cobb OTS maps are kinda weak sauce. Fork out the money for a protune.

This is going to cost a lot, are you sure you can afford it? I mean catless downpipes are like $300.

p&l short ram intake
grimmspeed ebcs
Downpipe of whatever brand you'd like
up-pipe
you dont need a diff bov (i am running 322awhp-352awtq on stock bov)
walbro 255 ( dont need it too much for just st2)
IPR top mount is cheap but good
if youd like headers equal length= more torque

this should be more then enough to get you a little bit past stage 2 hope it helps

I got mine for $100 Invida used. Look for unibombers BOV FAQ. They make all Subarus run like ****. Except for those select few that are boosting out of the stock bpv efficiency range.

You do not need one. No ifs, buts, when's, or why's,

So St205WRX, I was thinking how does this sound.... Dp, DW65 fuel pump, Cobb SF intake forge BPV. GS ECBS and PW or Spearco, and obviously a protune.

Stock intake is good for more whp than your stock turbo is even capable of producing.

the sf is a box of metal aka a hot box, intakes are aluminum and dissipate about as quick as plastic but absorb heat more I wouldn't get an intake until im BT and need a KStech bigger maf intake. Its loud and if you think its worth it for the noise go for it but id put that money into suspension

You can add bolt-on's still you're blue in the face. Higher flow injectors and fuel pump, TGV deletes, larger intercooler, MBC and/or EBCS, intake, exhaust, external wastegate, etc. The list can go on and on. If you just want to lean on your stock turbo while not setting records, I'd go with a full TBE, panel filter and a hallman MBC. Drive car and enjoy.

Is there a specific tune from the AP for the panel filter or is there no need to tune for it?

stock airbox + k&n drop in filter
hallman mbc
dw65c drop in fuel pump
catless dp
el headers
ewg up pipe with 38mm ewg
TMIC
Good tune

done. should be good for a mid to low 12 second pass if you can drive. 108-110 traps

would also invest in a boost gauge and AFR gauge and a cobb ap to monitor feedback knock. if you dont monitor any of those three you are deff more likely to mess something up

Look at my build, I have been through enough heart ache on my11. May I suggest you stay at stage-2 with a good fitting TMIC (AVO fits best), I ve been through the IPR/Perrin headache. Go stage-2 get a good pro tune.

I would do the following:
Catted DP, CDE
EBCS (grimmspeed) - optional
Forge BPV (Subaru specific model)
TMIC of choice (mine is AVO) -Optional
AEM intake
AP OTS stage-2 (for now)

Call it a day. You could wait on the TMIC, but to get max potential it should be tuned on the car.
