    I got my STI with a CAI and CBE...so a custome map would be mandatory..If your rex is stock the AP gives a stage 1 map with no mods..plug and play. The AP has lots of maps, none of them are compatable with my CAI and stuff so it depends...

    The AP uses off-the-shelf (OTS) maps. With each one, it comes with map notes, talking about the mods it supports. If you're using an OTS map, you're going to want to follow the notes. For stuff like headers, FMIC, etc. - you're going to want to take the car to a shop for a protune (they'll need some form of EM, so the AP wouldn't be a bad purchase). A Protune is always a good idea when you're happy with your performance mods, as it'll get the most out of them.

    Don't forget to upgrade your brakes to control your new-found power

    To get into the 12s, I would think a turbo swap would be necessary - maybe I'm wrong, though.

    Don't install the FMIC tell the turbo upgrade. You will need injectors as well.
