Default Stage 2 - Setup, Power, and How long have you been running it

Hey all,
Wanted to start a thread about stage 2 setups. I recently bought a 2013 STI and will post my info below along with an ideal template to use for this thread. Thanks!

CAR: 2013 STI SE. 2,200 miles
MODS: Invidia catted downpipe (divorced wastegate), Invidia q300 catback, Cobb AccessPort,
POWER AND TYPE OF TUNE: 306WHP/336WTQ - Protune (Agile Auto - MD)
HOW LONG: *Post how long you have been running this setup. Specifically, how long you have been on stage 2*.

My thought was to get some general info on how long people have been using their stage 2 setups and what has worked best for everyone. Hopefully we can get some good info going

Numbers are cool but you should also include the details of who did the tune and what type of dyno. The power bragging section has a good format to post results

CAR: 2009 WRX Prem wagon 63k
MODS: Cobb DP, SPT CBE, AEM CIA, Cobb Access Port, 1 step colder plugs
POWER AND TYPE OF TUNE: 51k-57k Cobb OTS Stage 2 +AEM CAI, 57k-63k(current) EFI Logics 270hp/311tq (this was done on winter tires and I asked for a more conservative tune) on mustang dyno
HOW LONG: Bought car in October 2012 with 51k, had the DP and CBE but was unmarried and no access port to be found. Subie dealer bought me an access port and flashed Stg 2 OTS map. I suspect the car has been running stage 2 for some time but at least the 12k I have put put on it. Only issue so far has been popping the gasket/coupler between the throttle body and TMIC. Gasket has been removed and coupler refastened. Has been good for a while.

2013 STi Lim, picked it up with 5 miles on it.

@ ~200 miles, Went stage 1 with cobb AP, Cobb OTS map

@ 800 miles, Stage II+ with invidia catted DP and Q300, and Cobb SF + BOX , Cobb OTS map

Ditched the lame Cobb intake + "Airbox" 200 miles later after seeing IATs on the AP, and experiencing overboost issues associated with the SRI. Also started noticing how "rich" the Cobb OTS map was.

@ 1200 miles on the odo, installed the AEM intake and did the "GR stumble" fuel line mod and was tuned my Eric at TP. (I could never shake occasional FKL with the cobb maps, so gave Eric a try. 20PSI in S#, no FKL or FK. AWESOMENESS)

Now @ 7K miles on the odo, Still running Eric's Stage II tune with the AEM, on 7th revision. Car runs like a champ. I keep it in S mode most of the time.


Eric also helped me with my next power mods (and prob last, unless the bottom end goes while I still own it). In August, my car goes under the knife and we are putting in:

DoM1.5 XTR 10cm w/ IWG, ID1000, DW65, KillerB ELH, a Turbo blanket for the DOM, and a new FPR.

Getting an E85 tune and a 93pump gas tune. Should make for a very fun DD!!

Surprised with Headers you didn't gain anything, but good to know.

Stuck at Stg 1 until Cobb restocks there DP's. Been running it this way since 250miles. I have ~3k now and like it, but need more

CAR: 2012 STI Sedan, Wingless. Stage 2 done at 33000km
MODS: Tomioka Bellmouth Catless Downpipe, Grimmspeed UpPipe+44mm EWG (Dumptube custom rerouted to Downpipe), Grimmspeed Ebcs, Invidia Q300, Grimmspeed Heatshield, PTP Turbo Blanket, DEI wrap on uppipe+downpipe, Cobb Accessport
POWER AND TYPE OF TUNE: 275hp at wheel (365hp at crank)/374.9 lbf.ft Protune done by Lachute Performance, on a dyno that is seemingly very strict on its readings
HOW LONG: Running it for 1000km now, zero issues

My fav mod so far is most definitely the ewg/reroute to dumptube. The sound it makes when the ewg opens up is nice and subtle due to the reroute, but still makes a very audible turbo sound, which in turn gives me a boner.

UPDATE: So I flashed a Cobb stage 2 tune on a couple days ago and really enjoy the feel of the car over the stock tune. The power feels much more distributed as opposed to the stock tune's "all or nothing" mentality. I have a pro tune scheduled in two days and will post power output then. Thanks for all of the replies so far, they were exactly what I was hoping this thread would develop into
