Stage 4 is very streetable. The difference is not that noticeable compared to stock.

As far as times go my current best is 12.80@106.xx. I believe there is another 1/10 or so still avaliable.

As far as reliabilty goes I have had no problems. I have had this setup for around 5000miles.

I ran a 12.8 @108 with a 1.9861 0-60 ft I have had turboxs products for over 35,000 miles. The only problem I have had is a bad maf. I believe the k& n filter was the cause. I now use the stock filter. Very streetable and no loss in gas mileage. Thanks Michael

Default Cobb tuning baby

If you you want good reliable set-up that will put you into the 12's I would definitely recommend Cobb tuning's R/T kit. Its like driving your orginal machine but just getting to places faster. I have had mine for only 300 miles but I havent had any problems. Buddy of mine has had the same thing for almost 18,000 miles no recorded problems. so if you are looking for a good reliable kit that will boost you into the 12's and not sacrafice reliablity then I would definitely look into the Cobb R/T kit.

I have Turboxs Stage 4, great as a daily driver. I have nothing but great things to say about Mark, Phil, and Nathan at Turboxs. They have always been extremely helpful with any questions I have.
I run 8.18 @ 84 mph in the 1/8 mile in 90 degree heat. Thats an easy high 12 sec, 1/4 mile.

I completely agree. Mark, Phil, Nathan, Denise amd Mike have been great to deal with. I am very select with the people that I trust. They always have time for me and never sugar coat their results. Thanks Michael

you can get well into the 12's with the stage 4. My last run was a 12.522@107.3. 0-60 in 1.74. Thats with the vf-30. See you all on the 14 of Sept.

I did run my 12.80 with a stock intercooler. I just added the turboxs intercooler last week. Talk about a noticeable improvement. I have not had the oppurtunity to take it to the track. The next time I go to the track will be the Subaru shootout of the 14th.

You can't go wrong with the stage 4 setup. Everyone at Turboxs is extremely helpful and will always take the time to answer all your questions.

People have run 12's with the stock intercooler. I had a bpm when I ran the 12.8. I sold the bpm and was going to go front mount when turboxs announced their new top mount. I decided to stay with a top mount and bought theirs. I like the ease of installation of a top mount and don't have to worry about damage to the front mount. The turboxs top mount is abit larger than the bpm and the reason I chose a larger intercooler was manly safety when running higher boost. Thanks Michael

Have you been running TXS produvts for over 35K miles or have you been running the stage 4 for 35K miles?

with the stage 4 I rev it to 3500rpm for a min and then floor it for a full second before letting off the clutch. This was recommended by Phil and I can pull off low 1.7 sixty foots, and he's gotten 1.6's

If you are holding it at 3500, then going to WideOpenThrottle for 1 second, isn't that enough time for it hit the rev-limiter? Are you launching off the rev-limiter? I'm not very good at launching my stock WRX on a sticky track, but I've never considered doing what you do.

Also, if you hold it at 3500RPM for one minute, you aren't doing that at a dragstrip are you? At my local strips they'd be tapping on your window asking what's wrong...figuring 10 seconds to stage, up to 20 seconds for the other car to finish and then that leaves you still holding 3500RPM for another 30 seconds.

I have run stage 1 and the bpm gt exhaust system from the start, then stage 2. I added the pe 1818 at 17,000 miles. Sold the 1818 and got the vf-30, injectors and aftermarket intercooler. I sold the aftermarket intercooler and bought the turboxs. I added the fuel pump about 2,000 miles ago. I now have 42,000 miles. As for launches I blip the trottle between 3500 and 4000 rpm's and engage slowly at green. This is the best way to get 2.0, high 1.9 0-60 ft's ( it other words it ain't the best way to launch) Thanks Michael
