    Need help! bought 07 wrx. found out its catless. cobb AP protune or open source?

    So i flew out and bought a 07 wrx last night. Got it from a speciality dealer who got it at auction. All he knew is that It was turboback exhaust and a Intake. So I get there and I find a Invidia CATLESS downpipe and spt intake and catback. I had purchased a cobb AP v3 prior. I plugged it in and insalled the stage 2 ots map.I spent the 12 hour drive home avoiding boost at all cost because I smelled how rich it was running underboost with the tune. Should I return the Cobb ap and get a open source tune, or KEEP the accessport and just find a tuner who will tune with the accessport on a dyno.
    Any experienced help is greatly appreciated!!!

    Possibly get an AEM intake. From my understanding that and the SF intake are the only maps Cobb supports.

    Contact Cobb and confirm this.

    Cobb is one of the most popular options.
    I have run AP on 2 different WRXs, works well.
    I did get a protune as well and that map is also on my AP.
    Where you have a catless down pipe, you should look into an external wastegate.
    Tatricx would be the less expensive than the Cobb.
    Most tuners will support both, however some do not.
    You must also ask yourself, I'm I going to do any mods down the road that require tuning.
    Most of us have been tuned more than once, for all sorts of different things.
