    Cobb tuning parts... I need advice ☺

    I have a 14 wrx hatch and was looking at building it a little and was looking at Cobb parts, I already have the accessport v3 and was just wondering if anyone has any comments on how the Cobb downpipe, catback exhaust, uppipe, or the cold air intake w/box are working for you. Thanks a ton!

    I have an 04 WRX with the Cobb up pipe and downpipe with a v3 AP. I love everything! The parts are high quality and fit just like OEM parts. Easy to install and add a good bit of power to the car. Plus it sounds great now! I have an SPT catback and intake and I think cobbs parts are as good as SPT.

    Honestly, I would skip out on the cobb parts. Not that they arent quality, but the price is not worth it. Look into Invidia. Invidia makes top notch parts, just as good as Cobb, but cheaper. Also, cobbs downpipe tapers to a 2.5 inch to match the stock catback exhaust. Invidia and other companies are a true 3 inch from the turbo back. Just a thought. Look around.

    I have their AP, turbo heat shield and shift knob. All are top quality.

    I went with an invidia down pipe because it costs much less but excellent quality. I also went with an Aem intake because it is a cold air, not a short ram like Cobb.

    I've got nearly 10 years on my Cobb catted TBE. It is all holding up very well through many road salt a plenty winters. The 2.5" taper is a merely a minor weakness in its design IMO. It comes right after the cat which is probably the choke point back pressure wise. I doubt anyone could find a measurable power difference in the short 0.5" reduction versus a full 3".

    I got the Cobb short flow intake and box today (along with Invidia Q300 and a pro tune) and I'm delirious with excitement from driving it around all day.

    I was stock two days ago. Just had a shifter kit.

    Installed a COBB Catted DP, Invidia dual exit N1 Street, SF+box intake and the V3 Stage 2 SF 93 Octane flash.

    Loving it. Sure...it cost me a few bucks...but I got a good deal overall from the local tuner shop. They are a vendor for COBB and gave me up to 15% additional savings.

    I go through an outfit called Garage Five Innovations.

    I live in BC, Canada. Just a good group of guys. They do their best to meet and even beat American pricing.

    Their work is even better.
