    Smile Just got a brand new 2013 WRX and need some advice

    Hi, I live in Crown Point Indiana and just got a 2013 WRX, and I meed some help woth tuning and mods. im a beginna, so I'm not really sure what to do. First of all, I was wondering if the Cobb Accessport was a necessity and if it increases fuel consumption. Also, I was wondering if anyone could recommend any exhaust pipes?

    My best advice to you would be to figure out how you're going to be tuned first. AP, e-tune, Pro-Tune, because each method of tuning will have different answers.

    AP - Follow Cobb's map notes at to what products they support

    E-tune - Once you shop around and pick an e-tuner, you need to ask them what products they support/recommend.

    Pro-Tune - Meet with your tuner and discuss your plans/goals for the car and they will suggest what parts will be best for you to use with their tune.



    To answer your questions though, the AP isn't a "necessity" unless you plan on tuning with the AP. As for increased fuel consumption, more so than not, you will notice a slight loss in mpgs when modded, but your right foot is your best way to get the most out of your mpgs.

    Welcome! I'll second all that Anthony put forth, and suggest you also read the thread in my signature for some basic info about modding these cars.
