    2015 WRX Mishimoto or ETS intake

    Im planning on pulling the trigger on an intake this week but im having trouble deciding between the two. I will be using the intake on the 93 stock tune for a couple months untill i get a protune. Both companys claim that its safe to use on the stock 93 tune, and ive seen that people have had no issues thus far. I have not yet heard the ETS,intake setup yet and id like to hear some feedback if anyone has one. I was going to go mishimoto because more people have it and theres no problems with it sofar. Then i saw that the ETS uses a bigger cone filter on their setup and im wondering if that would increase the sound/power?

    they're both great quality, and it's really not going to make a huge difference anyway, Go with whichever one you like the look of best.

    I will probably go with the mishimoto but i heard that its risky to have a catback installed with the intake on stock tune because its too rich. I never knew a catback caused you to run rich...

    Choose the intake that has support with proper MAF scaling.

    Yes i believe the mishimoto does, i kinda grasp the idea of MAF scaling but i would probably not be able to,do it myself. Do most tuning shops provide this service?

    If a tuner adjusts the map on your car, it is a good bet that he/she will make adjustments to the MAFv compensation. If you do not have a WBO2, the tuner will use a tail-pipe mounted EGA to reference your AFRs.

    Currently Cobb does not support alternative intakes with an OTS ready-to-go map. If you want to install an intake, you will need to seek out a professional tune.

    I guess theres no way around tuning, i will be ordering an AP This week and wait for the intake before protuning. Hopefully stage 1 with exhaust will provide good gains for 650.

    You will require custom mapping of the vehicle...talk to the person who is doing the tune and see if they use/prefer other methods. They may do OpenECU tuning which wouldn't require you to purchase a device, just pay for the tuning service.

    The awesome thing about spending 650 on it is being able to store custom maps, data logging, and the convenience

    But if you get custom tuned via OpenECU you only pay for the tune itself ($400-500) and save yourself $650 for an AP purchase (vs AP purchase + tune)

    To my knowledge, OpenECU does not yet support the 2015 WRX.

    I like the usabilty of the AP and how easy it is to Switch maps/log your car. Also all of the extra features are great and you can uninstall the AP in seconds.

    These features IMO are not worth an additional $500
