    How much HP from Cobb stage 2?

    Hey guys, first time poster. Just bought a WRX few days ago and was wondering what kind of HP I am getting with a downpipe, cobb intake, full turboback exhaust (nameless performance) and stage 2 Accessport. Can anyone give me a general idea of HP gains?

    was also wondering if it is worth it to get a pro tune, not sure how it compares to the AP tune. thanks!

    Cobb states the power difference on their site.

    A custom tune will get boost onset earlier, and will offer more power everywhere in the RPM range over a base map like Cobb. It is a map that's tailored to your car, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, and will offer an added margin of safety to it (since some cars don't take a base map well).

    An '08+ (based on the use of a Nameless exhaust) will be different

    Cobbs's dyno charts and map notes are about as close to a rough guess as you'll get. Its a decent increase over factory. What matters more is are you happy with it? If not, it doesn't matter what the numbers say.

    I thought stage 3 meant a turbo upgrade?

    I was under the impression it was upgraded intercooler and boost controller. Stage 4 was upgrading the turbo/injectors IIRC.
