The auto in my 9-2X was wonderful.



At the very least, it inspired me to learn to drive manual.

I have a buddy up here at school which is tuned either stage 2 or stage 3, I forget and am just curious.
My Fraternity advisor has a sti wrx with the cobb stage 2 and it ate my 9k for breakfast, no contest at all from roll or stop. Granted I've got a bone stock 97 9k auto but still, that thing was damn fast and could smoke all four tires from a start.

as I recall, Cobb lists their stage two at 285 hp (at the crank)... of course this was on the old 2.0 liter 4 with a stock 225 hp. I was running with their AccessPort, a JDM STi uppipe and turbo back (deleting 2 of the 3 cats) and I was VERY happy with the power. gas mileage, not so much.

yea, its that one.

Im paying 100 for all this stuff. so i figured whatever
well, if the shift knob is near perfect, there's no reason you shouldn't be able to pull down $75 - $100 for that... do a search in the NASIOC classifieds, and see what others were going for.

the sway bars aren't too difficult, but you really need to get under the car. the front can be accessed when you remove the plastic skid plate... after that, it's pretty self explanitory. make sure you use the least extreme setting on the rear, unless you want to bend your endlinks.

this is what will be installed on my moms car.

Cobb sway bar kit, my question is:what setting should i put it on? there are like three holes for the hardware to go through.

SPT axleback, my question is: will this allow too much backpressure for the 2.5 motor? or since its an axleback it wont even matter.

and lastly, STi shift knob. Cant use it, cause she has an auto. where should i sell it?
sway bar... front or rear?

SPT axleback... you should be fine with this... but don't expect any power benefits in any exhaust without fuel management software.

the STi knob... the piston one, I assume? sign up on NASIOC.com (North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club)... I had great luck with their classified section while parting out my car. you should be able to get a decent chunck for it, considering how much they go for new.

if you need a hand, holla...

I doubt I'll be cruising the 9-2X forums often seeing as I'm driving a 9-3 vert... even so I might be able to offer some assistance, or at the very least, tell you where to go seeing as I've been the proud owner of a lightly modded Subaru WRX for over 3 years.
