Question Will I feel it?

*Using AP...*It's a 4eat

I went Stage1 last week and the difference was very minimal.(Just smoother overall) Will the jump from Stage 1 to Stage 2 be similar to the stock to Stage 1 increase?

Also, are there any Stage 2 4eat owners that could comment on the general performance of the reflash? **I've searched isn't too much recent info.

Those maps are designed to be super safe. The stage 1 map will really net you only 10-15whp, and will cause you to run rich, in some cases very rich.

If you want, I can take a look at the car for you, we live in the same town and have talked on here before when you first got the car. Ill PM you some info bud.

Stage 1 is not done for a power gain. Yes, you do attain some power, but overall it's just a replacement for the less than perfect stock maps Subaru produces. As you felt, the biggest change is the smoothing of the powerband.

Stage 2 is for power.

i was worried about not noticing a difference in stage 2.. trust me theres a noticable difference.. its like a whole new car..

i think cobb rates 0-60 on stage 2 to be 4.6.. if thats true you're getting into sti territory my friend!

Edit, im talking about the 2.0L.. i think yours on stage 2 will pull 330lb ft vs my 285.. needless to say you will have some neck snapping torque..)

I am not sure it will be neck snapping torque but it will be quite a different car!

Stage 2 should be at least a triple jump from oem > stage 1. Theres no way you won't enjoy it, however you might get greedy and want more!?!?

Amen to that! I've only been on stage 2 for a little over a week and I want more. Stage 1 was okay. Stage 2 is where it's at!
