    no... Intercooler definitely doesn't have to be removed. The exhaust manifolds are on the bottom part of a boxer engine's heads.

    (pm me if you'd like some basic anatomy of your engine bay... I'd be more than happy to help!)

    See the above instructions that I copied from other sites.

    You can see instructions in the first post for the 02-05WRX O2 sensor replacement... The location on the O2 sensor for the STi and the 06+ WRX is on the second post... And the third post is the rear O2 sensor. That one's cake. Start there. That's usually the one that's fouled, cut, damaged, modified, or removed anyways.

    sorry for 4 posts... but I did not read your first post clearly. If this is new to you and you have a cobb accessport... please give me ALL of your modifications to your vehicle. The O2 code should be disabled with any map... but you have the accessport and an O2 code. So that makes me lean towards you having a previously modified car with a mismatched map! So please list ALL of your modifications! And look at the O2 sensor to see if it's removed, or let us know if you're catless... or if you have any modifications done to the O2 sensor (2.2kohm resistor mod, or the "anti-fouler" mod)
