ďStage 2Ē has been reliable for me. Iím at 90k. Ramping up the power since 25k.

MPG is also ridiculous. Great daily set up.

owners blow up their cars in all stock form. a lot owners of long term stage 2 cars havent. And of course vice versa.
Maintenance, common sense, and tune..... goes a long way.

My current car CObb OTS stage 2 since 2.5K miles. My old car, stage 2+ protuned for 7 year, problem free. My brother's 05 WRX, Cobb OTS stage 2 for 11 years (we're talking Cobb AP version 1 here), just old aged car stuff showing.
