Depends on your exact setup and how spirited you drive it... I'm guessing 15-20 mpg.

slo2sixty 08-02-2009 09:09 PM

i dont boost high too often and the mods are just whats needed fot the vf39 tune. so turboback, 255fp, vf39, sti injectors, topmount

Im currently running that setup and haven't really noticed a difference over stage 2. I guess it depends on your driving style.

Yeah, stage 3 being the STI turbo upgrade. You won't be that much different than stage2 unless you mash the pedal a lot. If I can stay out of it...I almost can get close to what my stock wrx used to get and I'm in a stage 2 STI. ;)

It definitely pulls stronger all the way up to redline. Stage 2 was a difference over stock, but not as noticeable to me, as this setup. Especially first and second, it hits hard. Its way better than stage 2. I don't think you'll be disappointed :).

I get 25mpg with my stage whatever, check my mods. When I was stage 2 I got 19 miles to gallon on an OTS map, after a tune I got 25 mpg.
A lot will depend on your driving, but a good map cam also help. Just don't redline ever gear and you should be fine, but if you drop the hammer it suck the gas.

If you don't have the turbo yet, I would just go ahead and set up to a VF30/34 or a 16g. The 39, 30, 34 and 16g will all be in the same HP range of 270-280 whp.

I know on my old 34 I would sometimes hit 30mpg on the highway (when I could keep it under 80 lol)...and city I got around 18 with the occasional flogging...on my green I'm seeing about the same highway numbers but citys way less lol :D...I guess its like everyone said it all depends on your tune and driving style
