    Cobb intake installed, question about it

    So Cobb intake is installed, been reading a lot about that and the accessport as far as of you NEED the accessport or not with the intake and iv got that you don't absolutely need it unless you want the most performance out of the intake. So my question is if I'm gona be alright without it? I just don't want to ruin my car lol. By the way I have a 2014 wrx hatch. Thanks!

    This isn't a matter for debate. Cobb's own product description is unquestioningly clear:
    Calibrations
    All aftermarket intakes for 08+ Subarus require tuning, regardless of manufacturer, in order to ensure the MAF sensor reads properly and the engine operates within safe parameters. COBB Tuning has you covered with Off-The-Shelf Maps for the Accessport, making it as easy as install, flash and go! Head over to the Subaru Accessport Map Database to view the full selection of SF Intake Maps for your vehicle.

    Revert to stock intake. Order AP asap. Install intake and AP at same time and flash to stage 1.

    Nearly every single thing we install on these cars needs a tune for.

    Make sure you flash to the Stage 1 + SF map. That is for the intake. Also be aware of the gas you use, and pick your map accordingly.

    Also, be aware of your target boost. If you are low, more than a + or - 1 margin, use the HWG map. If you are over boosting, use LWG.

    Finally, DO YOUR RESEARCH. Read what cobb says and how to datalog properly. You paid a lot for that car, take the time to protect your investment. Good luck

    Thanks guys I appreciate it. Will a v2 sub003 AP work for mine? And I'm confused about the gas selection, I'm in ohio and I use 93 octane

    How are you liking the intake thus far? I thought about pulling the trigger on one, but I'm unsure if I'd like the BPV sound on a daily basis...

    Sounds like pure bliss. I find myself using extra throttle between shifts to hear it taking in air.
    Its not just the bpv sound, you hear more of the intake taking in air under throttle.
    Get it, if u don't like it, it sells easily

    It's WELL with the money. I bought mine used for 200$. And it's not annoying at all, you only here it when the turbo spools, and yea like 386wrx said I give it some extra just to here it louder lol. Trust me you'll love it
