    For a TBE or intake you will need to tune so the Cobb AP would be a good buy. A CBE wont need a tune so you can just bolt and go. I would say either the ap so you can flash to stage 1 or a CBE for me personally i cant stand the quiet factory exhaust. it drove me nuts

    Did the AP and SF Intake today. Love the sound and the feel. Logs were safe and right on spec w/ what cobb said they would be. Couldn't be happier. about $775 - well worth it!

    "AP" is a commercial product from a specific firm. Have a look on their web site. Otherwise look into opensource tuning options.

    Doesn't use? So would it make a difference to up it to stage 1 with mods and expect a difference?
