Does anyone know where I can get a map for my AEM CAI, 2012 WRX 5dr otherwise stock except for stage 1 clutch, i'm new to the WRX world and i'm really not sure which map to use or where to get one, am I better off getting a pro-tune? I found this thread but i'm not sure which map to use, i'm not looking for HP gains really just don't wanna be running lean, thanks in advance. https://cobbtuning.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/204448184

I don't think they make pre made maps for a aem cai. I think you'll need a pro tune to use that.

Email or call Cobb directly. You bought their product for a lot of money, so it's fair to expect support from them.

Cobb used to offer free maps for the AEM intake, but it appears that they are no longer on the main website when you go to map selection. Those might be legit, but without knowing what you're getting, I would be a little bit weary not being able to confirm the actual source.

If I were in your shoes, I would download any of the maps you think you might need (LWG/HWG included), and then contact Cobb. If your AP is legit, it will have a valid S/N that you can provide. Send them in an email to Cobb and ask them to authenticate them for you. Worst they can say is "pound sand". If you're unable to authenticate the source of the file, then you have two options:
1) Pay someone to create a custom mapping for your car
2) Put the factory airbox back on the car until you can pay for someone to create custom mapping on your car

Third option would be to review the mapping yourself, make sure nothing seems "off", and flash the map to your car and monitor datalogs to ensure everything seems good. The fact that you asked this original question is why I didn't include it above, as you may not have the knowledge to make a properly informed decision.

Right, I don't plan on flashing it without getting some sort of authentication from Cobb, I was thinking about dropping by my local protuner tomorrow and seeing what they think I should do.
