    more questions COBB

    i will try to make this a quick and simple question:

    i have a 2013 wrx...
    i want a cobb intake and air box...
    i know i need the cobb access port to make adjustments for this new intake to prevent poor engine management
    if i also want to free up the exhaust, what is the best way to go?
    is the access port smart enough to adjust these settings to the point where i wont get a check engine light? i'm primarily concerned because i dont want to have to put everything back to stock condition come inspection time. in rhode island all the inspection consists of is an obd2 plug in. i also dont want to modify the car to the point where the mods are considered no longer "safe" for a stock engine.

    please let me know if this makes any sense. thanks.

    You will want to get a turbo back exhaust. The AP will eliminate the codes


    As far as inspection I can't offer any advice. Never had to deal with it

    As long as they don't do an emissions test up there you're fine and as long as you have the accesport, codes won't be a problem.

    You do not have to tune for the Cobb intake. The diameter is the same as the stock intake so no MAF corrections are needed.

    I stand corrected 08+ do need to be retuned. I have an 07 and no retune was necessary although I did reflash to a 93 Octane stage 1 map.

    Wrong on the tuning. The intake will affect A/F ratio. Though problems wont show up right away... it does not mean it is ok. Get it tuned and flash to stage 1 with the Cobb intake

    This is false for 3rd gen WRXs.

    I would start by reading the stickies at the top of the page and checking Cobb's website. All the information for the AP and what it can do as well as the parts required are right on Cobb's website.
