I currently have a stock 2005 STi. I have been looking into the vishnu racing stage2 kit that pushes the car up to 400hp. Has anyone installed this kit or heard any pros or cons about it? Thanks

$4,090 seems steep for an FP Green setup that doesnt even include an IC. You could piece together a kit a lot cheaper than that I would think....

what would you guys recommend? I am new to this which is why a kit looked more appealing then pieceing together my own set up.

Thumbs up for vishnu I recently got the stage 1 with reflash and am loving it. I can't imagine what stage 2 would be like. Stage 1 has transformed my car, much more torque, sounds better too. Feels like the next higher gear now has the acceleration of the old gear below. 4th now pulls as hard as 3rd did.. etc. Still idles fine and is perfectly streetable.

I did have one little issue with the install, the downpipe was very close (1mm) to the transmission crossmember and would rattle with engine vibration. Best solution for me was to grind off a small part of the edge of the crossmember. Sounds crude, but it fixed everything. We consulted vishnu/perrin on that and it sounds like it is always a tight fit, but rare to have it contact the way mine did. Fixing it was easy enough though and it shouldn't stop anyone from buying such a great kit.
