    Thumbs up Newbie from Wyo gots a question

    New WRX owner, love it already...header back exhaust, new BOV...about to get a Cobb AP. I am curious...I am going to redo my interior with red lighting, and as you all know stock guages are green and kinda ugly. So far I havent found anyone who makes new guages or covers for the stock guages, so I am curious to see if the STI guage cluster will swap direct with my guage cluster. I believe I read that it did, but I am double checking. Unless anyone knows where I can pick up a different set of guages that would be red...let me know

    Howdy and welcome!

    An altternative is a change your current gauge cluster to red. Here is a tutorial on how to do it: Tutorial on changing instrument panel color.

    A bit time and labor intensive, but if you have the patience and skill that might be the way to go.

    Welcome!

    I think the DIY method would be your best bet for changing the colors. I'm almost positive that the STi cluster is a clean swap as well.

    another question

    Alrighty...Sense I have installed the up pipe, down pipe and the exhaust that was already on the car(magnaflow) the car now back fires almost everytime I am shifting out of high rpms...Unfortunatly cobb is way backed up on there orders, and I have a feeling the car is trying to adjust to all the extra air and lack of backpressure and is just sending to much fuel to the car, but i dont know for sure. Anyone have any ideas on this?

    And one more question, anyone who is running an cobb AP, I noticed on there website that none of there normal maps are designed with aftermarket intakes...why is that and will it hurt me any when I get my AP having an aftermarket intake already on the car?
    Thanks again for all the help!!

    Im no expert, but with the aftermarket BOV you will def. be running rich between every shift, and pairing it with a crappy aftermarket intake could make this problem worse. Some aftermarket intakes skew the MAF reading thus affecting the air/fuel ratio. Without proper tuning an aftermarket intake will only hurt you. From what i understand the stock system is good to a large amount of horsepower anyway and the same goes with the stock blow off valve.

    Also the maps that cobb offers are only to be paired with their intake system.
