    From a performance and functionality standpoint, I would say no, it's not worth it.

    I didn't think it would. Just wanted confirmation.

    Thanks for the info in this thread guys. Coming from a bolted MS3 the mod path is very different. The fact that an intake doesn't do much is what really hit me considering I had an intake 1" wider at the MAF than stock and saw CONSIDERABLE gains with a tune. Anyways, I'm going to keep reading and stick to mounts and bushings for now in order to plan a proper plan of attack for power goals. Most likely Invidia catted DP followed by...an e-tune i suppose.

    BTW picking up my '14 WRX Hatch next weekend.

    I just bought my first WRX right off the showroom floor. Having previously been a VW/Audi guy it's all new to me.

    Initially, when buying a new GTI the first thing on the list is an ECU flash to liven up the motor a bit. With that said, I have a question for the Accessport users. How noticeable is the difference on a stage 1 map?

    I realize someone has likely given feedback somewhere in this thread but searching through scores of pages isn't something I'm going to do. At least I didn't ask how to determine wheel/tire fitment. I'm not new to forums at all so let's keep the flaming to a minimum...

    I noticed a difference with stage one. I purchased it because I plan on making changes at a slow pace so the ap was a good choice for me. Make sure you do your break in period before mods though.

    Absolutely. She'll at least see a few oil changes before she sees 4500 RPM.

    A friend of mine is parting out his 07 STI and offered to sell me his aftermarket downpipe that's only been gently used. I have a 13 WRX. The downpipes looks the same. My question is, are they in fact interchangeable?

    I don't know - you might find it in the exhaust faq here or nasioc or you might get a quicker reply if you start a thread. Matt may be able to help if he pops in.

    Thanks. Got the same answer in another thread. Bit the bullet and bought one brand new, car specific with new gaskets and some wrap. I don't know why I didn't just do that first. It wasn't really that expensive.
