    The NE USA is so packed full of tuners, it's unfair to the rest of the states

    I would recommend against going to to CBRD. Not just recommend other shops, but yeah...

    Check my FS thread, I think this isn't the proper part of the forums.

    EFI was also another option I was looking into. So far this is the shop I've heard the best stuff about, although I did hear that at the end of the summer they lost one of their best tuners/owner in a horrible accident (RIP Chris, everyone who knew you have great things to say).

    I guess its really about speaking to the shops now and letting them know what I'm interested in doing. (the car is a 2011 STi sedan. Currently has invidia downpipe, cobb SF intake, nameless performance muffler delete, and a cobb OTS stage 2 +SF intake map. I'm really looking to get a little bit more power, but I don't want a tune thats getting every little bit out of the car and doing damage, I need a very conservative tune that will give the car longevity.) Any help would be great! thank you

    Do you guys have the box too? I've heard your more prone to heat soak if its not used. Thoughts? I could pick one up without the box for cheap.

    There is a reason why they designed the intake to work with the box. If I were getting that intake I would get the box too.

    When you do the install you will notice, the box sort of blocks the area the intake sits from the warm engine parts, the only open area's in the box are the bottom, leading down to infront of the front tire, in the passenger side bumper area, and from the front grill where that plastic piece guides the air to the air box, the box really closes the air box off from the rest of the engine bay, so yes I would suggest the box, strongly. Without the box I could see the Intake Temp being not much cooler then the stock intake.

If I can recall correctly the stock intake was about 10-20 degrees over outside temp.
    oh i know its not as drastic an increase as some stock box lovers will lead you to believe. my buddy has the cobb sri on his bugeye, and even here in vegas summer heat his intake temps are barely 5-8 degrees higher than with his stock box
