    cobb access port on 06 wrx

    i have a 2006 impreza wrx 2.5L turbo with a K&N typhoon cold air intake and Invidia racing series catback exhaust. will a cobb access port tuner help with my performance? and will all the preset maps work with the modifications i already have?

    Welcome to the forum. You need to read the map notes (which will tell you that intake isn't supported). If you want to use OTS maps you need to go back to stock or get a supported intake (AEM or Cobb). Have you looked at their site at all? I don't understand why you're asking if it will help with performance... That's the whole point...

    thanks....so i would have to build a custom map for the intake i have? or my only option is AEM or cobb intakes? and what would happen if i ran it anyway?.. yeah sorry that didn't come out right i meant to say was since i already have those 2 modifications is the performance upgrade still substantial and can you really feel it? pretty much is it worth the money?

    If you possess the skills to create a tune yourself you wouldn't be here asking so I assume you mean you'd have to find someone to create a tune. Assuming the person knows what they're doing, they can tune for just about anything (within reason). But the cost and trouble of doing that is far more than just selling your intake and getting a supported one. If you ran it anyway you could definitely run into issues with the car running well and/or CELs.

    Personally I've run stage 1 tunes for a lot of miles on a couple of Subarus and on the older models they don't give nearly as much gain as on the newer cars. On your car I'd look into a downpipe if you really want to feel a power gain. But you can do that along with the AP anyway so there's no reason you couldn't buy one and see how it feels to you and then go stage 2 if you want.

    cobb access port on 06 wrx

    I have an 06 wrx with a Cobb since I bought the car new in 06 and I love it I have the vf43 turbo and Sti top mount on your mods I see you said cat back do you still have the stock down pipe on the car? Stage 1 is not a big difference but if you add a bell mouth down pipe and go stage 2 you'll see a big difference
