First tune with them was stock turbo without gutted uppipe, tune was at 17psi with around 280whp and 285wtrq. Cat material in uppipe melted, broke off and killed turbo...Topspeed sold and installed an 04 sti turbo and gutted up pipe, then retuned for around 900 bucks so its an 04 sti turbo now lol not sure which one that is. Second tune was done by Scott Siegel.

What exactly is stage 3? Like what mods? Reliability is 90% in the tune so as long as it is tuned well you should be fine w regular maintenance and upkeep and I you don't drive like a madman 24/7 haha but the 2.5 is slightly less reliable w head gasket issues etc... But other then that you should be good.

That's a nice fun setup for year isn't it? I don't really talk stages haha but I believe your right stage 3 = any turbo upgrade and your also right those 3 things is why you'd need and it would be killer!

02 wrx sedan, family owned ever sense day 1 in 2001 106k miles, just did timing belt. stock motor and trans except for lightweight flywheel (makes the CEL stay on though which is annoying).
PS: everyone with a "burnt out clock" in their 02-03's, it's really easy to fix, you just have to pull it apart and re-solder one of the resistors did it a year ago and it works perfect again

2005 WRX - 2nd owner
188,xxx and climbing
stock engine, turbo, trans
1st owner replaced timing belt and water pump at 100,xxx
Cobb Stage 1 since 164,xxx
Cobb Stage 2 since 167,xxx
replaced front o2 sensor at 162,xx
replaced clutch with oem and ACT flywheel at 166,xxx
replaced turbo coolant tank due to rusting at 187,xxx
pretty much basic maintenance after that oils, coolant, etc.

Turbo seems to be on its last legs though, cant blame it for lasting that long! Planning on either doing a vf39 swap or replacing it with a td04 and saving up for an EJ207. Hoping to make it to 200k!

edit: heres how she sits now
