    Stage 2 flash with stock intake

    Hey everyone,
    just as the title implies, I'm curious as to if running a Stage II flash via Cobb AP would be possibly/logical without an aftermarket CAI yet running an Injen DP along with the stock intake on a 2010 WRX. I've heard throughout this forum as well as NASIOC that the 2010 stock intake is rated to over 350whp (seems a bit extreme and slightly unrealistic). I've tried researching this on my own to find more solid truth behind it than what other Subie drivers have told me but no luck there an corrections to the my info is more than welcomed (knowledge is power) Thanks again

    Is it so hard to believe that a manufacture actually designed a decent intake? Yes it is, but its true. You will be with with the stock intake at stage 2.

    Anyone running a stock intake on a 350whp setup is probably losing 25whp+ by not getting an intake. The comment about '350whp" is often misconstrued from 350bhp. Once you get to StageII levels with a VFXX turbo, it's worthwhile to get an intake if you are willing to tune for it (not a base map like Cobb, which just scales to account for the MAF variance).

    Case in point:
    2011 Subaru STI stage 2 plus intake. Before/After intake test. - NASIOC
    2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road - Daily
    2005 WRX STi (Mods | Virtual Dyno) - Toy
