    All 06+ cars came stock with catless UPs. That money is better spent elsewhere.

    You're thinking of the 2002-2005 EJ205 WRX and the 2005 Legacy GT. Your car does not have a cat pre-turbo.

    I think that is just some sort of sound deadening. If it was a cat it would take up the middle section as well.

    It would look like the pictures from this post:

    Im going to go with a pro tune (precision tuning), and buy the access port because from what i have heard its well worth it. also im going to get a cobb cbe and invidia dp, Do these mods seem to be a good combo?

    Yeah alot tuners won't tune your car unless you have an accessport but I live in jersey too and just checking that you know of the only three E85 stations in the state and two of them are central/north NJ. CBE will give you a nice rumble and the DP will definitely bring you the power you want.

    You don't need it I just saw you mentioned it earlier E85 is capable of making your power goals with those mods (with bigger injectors too) I would run it if there were more stations available in NJ but there aren't

    Does Precision tune with the accessport? If not, then there's not much reason for you to buy one.
