    So I got the stage 1 package installed and drove it around a lot. This is suck a great upgrade. Car feels a lot better. The power doesn't feel like this is much more but it's there sooner

    Good to know. I was thinking of only getting at ap. But now you got me thinking about the intake.

    I just installed this today also! Well worth it from what little I have driven. I just installed the Intake and Airbox and flashed the Stage 1 map and had to come to work. With the intake you can deffinatly hear the air being sucked into the engine. Almost like a blow off valve.

    I just bought and installed here said parts and I've learned a couple of things. There is absolutely very little room to work with. In order to remove the airbox, you NEED a ratchet extension, or you will have less than 1" of space to use a regular one if you can manage it (I did, don't recommend it).

    Airbox is fitted by some miracle with little room for play. I found that disconnecting the rubber hose from the stock airbox would have been the primary step I should have taken in order to make this easier. The easiest way to do this was to completely loosen the straps holding it in, and peel it back like a condom? (Lol)

    Keep anything you don't want to lose away from the engine bay, as well as anything that can fall into the intake pipe.

    Aside from that, Cobb isn't the perfect fit, although you can work with that. That being said the only drawback I found was the intake plastic (plastic hose you attach the filter to) rattles at low rpm. This is an easy fix, it's either the Y plate holding the filter or the SF airbox. Gonna take it out and line those with the rubber seal it came with. (Only lined scoop and hose areas).

    Also I'm not sure if it's an issue but I did find water and salt marks on and in the air scoop, that being said I'm not sure how much could have gotten or possibly could, I also put a hydro shield on it, seeing how I had one from a previous vehicle. Looks very clean, just wish the rubber Cobb hose was easier to work with (size)

    Anyone else here actually manage to stick their access tuner anyone on their car? Mine simply refuses to stick anywhere. Great tool, also like the magnet on it to keep it in place, just can't get the actual thing to stick


    - great alternative for a blow off valve, couldn't be happier.
