    COLD AIR INTAKE REEDIT

    For my own experience, first I bought an INJEN CAI, the ended up buying COBB accesport V3, downloaded Stage 1 into my ECU, but I ended changing the CAI from INJEN to a COBB, because the mapping in the Accesport is designed for the COBB CAI, you should have to replace the actual intake for the COBB brand.... Honestly I didnt feel the difference in Stage 1 map between the 2 different intakes, but i followed suggestions by COBB and from people in this Forum.... all also depends what kind of mods you already have in your car , and if it has been tuned by a professional.
    Hopes this help

    good luck

    This would be a question to ask Cobb.

    Even though their maps are made for certain intakes, the one you have May not skew readings and could potentially be used without causing harm

    So you're running a stage 2 setup without tuning it? That's pretty stupid. Enjoy blowing your motor.

    And what form of data logging have you used to determine that it "runs fine". I'm assuming you have a WBO2 hooked up as well, since it would be virtually impossible to determine how the car is running without one.

    It has been shown time and time again that 04-05 WRX have a closed loop/open loop fueling delay issue that caused permanent engine damage when running an aftermarket down pipe without tuning. I'm interested to see your logs showing your car runs fine like that opposed to every other 04-05 WRX.

    Just because your engine hasn't blown up doesn't mean you haven't taken 20k miles off of its life expectancy.

    Hi welcome. Not sure who that was directed towards but either way, name calling is not allowed. Please familiarize yourself with the rules

    Mainframe is 100% correct and his post is helpful. I would highly recommend getting a tune ASAP or returnthe car to stock until you are prepared to tune.

    Maybe you should start listening to tuners, mechanics, more experienced enthusiasts; Mainframe is all of them. If you did your research or listened to anyone at all, then you would know not to run a full TBE without a tune, much less an intake.

    For your original question, only run the intake Cobb says to run if you're using a canned map. If you're getting a protune, then it does not matter what intake you use.

    While it may in fact be stupid, there are more effective ways of explaining why that is to a noob. The flame response you provided was more likely to upset and cause butt hurt than to cause someone to stop and think.

    We all know ignorance abounds, especially with noobs and flaming them is usually going to cause them to react to the negative ...which causes them to largely miss your actual point.

    Pretty much everyone says 93 is ideal. But depending on the station and where you're located 91-ish may be the highest grade available. Just don't use 87 lol.
