    isnt this kinda old for some of us 09-13 owners? or it should be along the same guidelines, i see alot of people posting CAI first, or maybe AP, following everything else?

    step 1 doesnt apply to 06+ wrx's or sti's. everything else is still on point.

    AP is mentioned in step 3

    some newer gen owners choose to do an intake first but engine management is required [and you cant always use an accessport because the maps dont support all intakes]

    Really? I can just go slap on whatever intake I want? So if I go stick a 70mm APS intake or any big MAF everything will be fine because it is an 02-03? Or maybe any POS Ebay $20 intake everything will be hunky-dory? You are being at little to generalized. Like said before,it all depends on what intake.............this is also common knowledge.

    DP first... I did the DP and CAI at the same time, the car felt much much better. I also got a TP stage 2 tune.

    There's a difference between throwing a DTC due to the intake and having AF Learning outside an accepted safe margin. How about when one cell of the AF Learning table it is adding 10% fuel, then in the next it's removing 10% fuel?

    I bought an AEM drop in air filter and a Magnaflow catback exhaust. I had all season performance tires installed since I live in Ohio.
