    It basically means that your unlocking stuff that Subaru has locked up right?
    Will it put more unnecessary stress on my turbo if I open it up
    More with the tuning? And K&N intakes don't have maps for my car?
    Right. Like these guys say (they know what they are talking about), Cobb maps are not designed for k&n. I don't believe there are off the shelf maps for that intake. You wouldn't think it would make a difference, but all intakes are unique to the manufacturer. If you go off the shelf route you need to follow the map notes to a T. No one can guarantee that you won't have issues with you engine if you start meddling around with it, but assuming you follow the instructions and do your research you should be fine.

    Swaybars should be properly matched to the springs you have on the car. I believe Eibachs are hollow sways, which means you need thicker bars to be equivalent to solid alternatives.

    Without other mods like a downpipe, the gains are going to be small, if anything. The factory airbox does a good job. Also, you'll need a tune when changing the intake.

    I took that as sarcasm, as in "you need to be searching the forum and Google, because these questions get answered daily."

    If I get a cobb cool air intake do I absolutely have to get a tune right away?
    What are my draw backs if I don't? I'm I endangering my engine?
    I'm not In any good economic stands where I can get both the intake and the tune....

    Then don't buy an intake.
