08 STI vs 09 WRX
Another old video that I just found. A quick comparison of my wife's stock
09 WRX versus my 08 STI when it was running Cobb's Stage 2 91 map, with 94
octane in the tank. Runs were done on the same day, same temps, same
sections of road.
The 09 WRX is very impressive. If you watch the video closely you can see
how the stage 2 map on my STI has abrupt pauses in acceleration with each
gear change, whereas the WRX pulls smoothly. My car was definitely faster but the gear changes sort of evened
things out. There is something in the stage 2 91 OTS tune that causes this
- not sure if it is ignition overrun or what but my more recent tunes have
smoothed this out.

this video is just to showcase the mods listed above for those WRX owners
that are in the process of deciding what to buy for their cars. hope this
helps with the research. thanks for looking!
