    OH MY LAWD!!!

    Alright guys, I ordered my AP v3 along with the cobb sf intake and box on Tuesday and received it last night. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and install it already. I woke up this morning and much to my surprise it was a sunny day here in Miami (it's been rainy all Summer). Install took about 45 minutes which included AP install. Drove around town a couple times taking it easy for about 40 miles. Then something magical happened. I felt the $1,000+ investment was finally validated. Let's start with the sound, oh that sexy sound. You hear that baby spool soooooo early now and then when you let off the gas....... Pppsssssshhhhhhhh. YOU CAN FINALLY HEAR THE RECIRCULATING BPV!!!! Now let's talk about performance. The power curve is now smoothed out and you get that power way early in the RPMs. With stock, you would really feel the turbo engage around 4,000 rpm give or take. Now the power curve is smooth and pulls all the way through. If your on the edge and don't know whether to buy this setup, I say do it!!!! I highly recommend it. It's a big investment but you will enjoy the car sooooo much more. The AP V3 and different gauge setup is amazing as we'll. no need to install a boost gauge or oil gauge. The accessport has it all right there at your finger tips. Cobb did a very good job and continues to deliver great products.

    At first I thought I'd keep the stock tune for a while, but sometimes I want to say screw it and get an AP for a Stage 1 flash, then flash back to stock if/when I go to the dealership for warranty work and pray they don't dig too deep

    I was in your shoes. I was skeptic about having the dealer look into it if I ever bring it back. They would really have to dig in to see if any codes had been changed. Then they would need to prove that the AP caused the issue. I don't think they would go to that extent but I may be wrong. I'm only at 16K but I feel like its worth it. Cobb made an amazing product.
