Stages differ between companies, but most use COBB as the basis.

Stage 1:
Stock/aftermarket intake
Stock/aftermarket catback exhaust

Stage 2:
Downpipe
Stock/aftermarket intake
Stock/aftermarket catback exhaust

After that, everything is just ambigious and not worth mentioning.

Imma post before you get flamed. The biggest thing about this forum is to search. If you gave a question especially about a hot topic as such, chances are a plethora of people have also asked before you. Just search.

It varies from company to company but generally the same.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1471734

Cobb only uses Stage 1 and 2.
Stage1: Stock Car
Stage2: TBE
Anything beyond that is described by the map name.

TurboXS uses a little different system.
Stage1: Stock Car
Stage2: TXS TBE
Stage3: TXS TBE, Uppipe, and topmount intercooler(TMI)
Stage4: TXS TBE, Uppipe, STI Inj, VF3X, & TMI

Borrowed from WRX Tuners.

ScoobieSubie, make sure you read below, as a lot of the information is in there. Though possibly not specifically spelled out for you.

Also make sure you drop by the New England sub-forum.

I know it varies, but I think the above has more than needed:

Stage 1: stock car with a tune
Stage 2: aftermarket downpipe with a tune

Many people do not bother with an intake, and a catback is used for a better exhaust tone but not as a performance mod. On the old cars, it is common to put in a catless uppipe as well - that can be done at either "stage" without changing anything.

I suppose everyone will have a different answer
