Engine Rebuild Required for a COBB Stage 2 on an '04 WRX
Just purchased a blue '04 WRX with 208,000 km, as my daily driver and occasional track toy (autocross, nav rally and track lapping days).
I also am moving to it from a stock '09 STi 5-door lease, so I've got a feel for the other side as well.
I'll run it essentially stock with just a Cat-less turbo up-pipe for now, but if I eventually decide that it's time for something more, I like the COBB Stage 2 performance package.
[B]Does it make more sense to have the engine and tranny rebuilt before this kind of mod?[/B]
Also, is this a level of tune that is suitable for day-to-day use? I know it makes it faster, but did it use more fuel, require more maintenance or be more tempermental to operate and live with?
My opinion, go stage 2, drive it until something breaks. No point in putting all that money into rebuilding things unless your going to go all out and build a stroker of something. Stage 2 is good for daily driving
Hey right on. nice purchase. The STG 2 drive daily all day long. Yeah drive her till she goes.
