    AEM Cold Air Intake on my 2013 WRX??

    I'm about to go stage 2 on my wrx and i dont really think i will do much more.. should i add the AEM CAI before i get it tuned or no? what would i get in terms of gains and would it be worth the 200$ part?

    At S2, you should see 10+whp with a VFXX turbo, plus you get that fun intake sound.

    You will need a tune to use that intake.

    Run the AEM and Cobb DP currently; everything else is stock. With the Torque Performance Stage 2 I'm very happy with the car as a performance driver. That said, I decided to try the Nameless Axleback exhaust on my hatch to give it some fun loving noise out the back. No performance increase expected; just the sound of a performance car to go with the Stage 2. A Sparco driver's seat for the same reason as the new mufflers; feel like a performance car without the expense.

    Not really interested in making this into any super street performer or track car. Just a fun little street performance car. God bless all those that spend the serious money to give it super performance; been their, done that years ago. Happy with my little WRX going 0-60 in 5 seconds or less.

    Oh forgot, a DAMD steering wheel and short shifter is installed as well. The new Sparco should look good with the D steering wheel and make it easier to get in and out of the performance seat
