No one can answer your question, not even Cobb, but they're a good place to start. Their Stage 1 is where the motor should be, catless of course, Stage 2 is definitely taxing the motor some, shortening its life. Stage 2.5 requires a bit too much stuff for anyone to convince themselves that it's anything but detrimental to the motor.

Save yourself the trouble, get an STi, flash it to Stage 1 and be happy with your mid 12.
