I'm finally pulling the trigger on the Cobb AP and I have a question I can't seem to find an answer to.

If I use the Cobb Stage 1 93 tune is the Air intake 100% required?

I want to get rid of the rev hang and I want a bit more power, but I'm not really interested in doing the intake just yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Stage 1 no

Stage 1+ big SF yes. You can also verify by their map notes

You did not mention the model and year of the car which is an important point.

I don't understand why this is a poll. The answer to your question is clearly indicated in the map notes for the relevant car.

For the 2015-2018 STI:

328949


Stock airbox is required, no aftermarket (including Cobb's own intake) is permissible.

For the 2002-2005 WRX (as example):
328950


Either stock airbox or Cobb SF intake is permissible.

Hey yeah you're right, sorry about that. it's an 18' WRX. I didn't realize there were map notes available.

Please understand that I am new to this and am trying to learn.

Made it a poll because I have heard yes/no to this question and I just thought it was a way to get the most straight forward answer.

I decided to go with the stage 1+ package as its cheaper then going without the intake.

Thank you.

Good move. It also performs the same.

I'm also going to remove the poll since this can only confuse other members.
