    MAPerformance Stage 2

    Is anyone running the MAPerformance Stage 2 map with any aftermarket J-pipe and their Intake? Any positives or negatives? There are plenty of reviews on their stage 1 map, but not many on their stage 2 map.

    And I know that MAPerformance requires that you use their Intake for the Stage 2 map.

    I installed their CAI and stage 2 tune last weekend, so far I'm liking it much better than COBB's CAI and tune. Car feels much stronger.

    Are you using Cobb's J-pipe? I'm looking for J-pipe recommendations as well.

    Grimmspeed? Cobb? etc.

    I have never been a fan of cobb's exhaust. Overpriced, and it tapers down to a 2.5 inch before the catback, so it isn't a true 3 inch turboback.

    Not sure about MAPerformance's map requirements, but I know cobbs are made for a catted j pipe. So any J pipe with a high flow cat would work. I would suggest Grimmspeed, or Invidia.

    I was thinking Grimmspeed, but I'm still leaving the door open to others.

    As far as their Stage 2 map goes, this is the requirement that they list on their page:

    Please Note: Requires MAP Intake, Any Catted/Catless Aftermarket J-Pipe and the Secondary Boost Pill MUST be Removed

    1. You must be talking about the GR exhaust. Cobb's GD exhaust was damn near perfect in tone and level.
    2. The taper is nearly inconsequential. The restriction to overall flow would not be noticed at any reasonable power.

    I recently bought their kit. Went with catted and mufflers. Really liked the quality of parts. The welds were beautiful. I briefly went Cobb stage 1 flash just before I got around to installing the parts. The intake sounds awesome. I thought it could be annoying but actually love it and it's not too loud driving around normal. The exhaust sounds great and isn't obnoxiously loud.

    As for the tune I'm new to the whole tuning/access port. I'm running their 91 tune on 93 fuel. It's typical for me to register a -1.41 feedback knock on hard pulls to about 6k. Dam has never changed from 1 ever. I ran the 93 very briefly and saw a -2.81 feedback knock.

    Love it so far and I enjoy the car 100x more than stock and way more than Cobb stage 1. Call and order from Ian (he typically gives a discount).

    This may be a dumb question but on the MAP page they have a Downpipe and a J-pipe. What's the difference? There is a bit of a price difference.

    Down pipe and j pipe are the same thing. Map's own downpipe (manufactured in house by them) is two pieces where as grimspeeds is one piece. They also retail other brands.

    Map's downpipe with a high flow cat is 100 bucks more than if you get their downpipe catless.

    The STI uses a down pipe and the WRX uses a J pipe, be careful when ordering.

    Yes, people who don't know better call the J pipe a down pipe, but it is not.
