ap+cai
 
I've searched the forum and cant seem to find what i'm looking for, so ill try a post. im sure its been covered already, though, so bare with me.

Going to get the AP, definitely. When going to stage 1, is it worth getting cobbs cai also? If so, is the OTS cobb map good enough for the cai or should I get a custom tune?

Cobbs intake is not a cai. Its just a short ram. Yes their ots tune is good enough but a custom tune is always better and recommend when using a reputable shop.

IMO I would recommend the aem cai. Cobb has an ots map for that as well. The ots map is okay for the intake at stage 1. Custom tune is always better though because it's tailored to your car not a generic one.. But there isn't anything bad about the ots map. A custom tune will be recommended by most eventually

^THIS^

And I def agree to go with AEM's CAI as well. If you're gonna spend the money, at least spend it on a CAI so you won't be held back with future mods.

And the AEM intake looks a whole lot better in the bay than Cobb's setup 👍

I went with the Injen CAI. I like how it doesn't dive straight into the fender and hangs in the bay more. You'd need a Protune for this though OP

Yea the cobb intake and the front scoop don't look like they go well together. Also the cobb is pretty close to stock other than you get more sound from it. Like the riot act said, not very beneficial for future upgrades.

The injen is pretty sexy looking as well! :cool:

Even if you got a dp and went stage 2+ aem cai ots map would be okay. And then save for a custom tune. That's where I'm at and it's like a new car runs drives and shifts way better. She can finally breath!!! :D

gotcha. im doing the cobb short shifter and bushings soon too. all of that should make her happy.

Very nice. I did the spt linkages with kartboy short shifter, kartboy rear bushing, perrin front bushing and twm performance weighted shift knob. And might I say holy moly it was night and day!

When you install the bushings I recommend removing the heat shield. It's easy, unplug the o2 sensor so you don't have to take it out. Pull the wire across, unbolt the 4 bolts holding the shield. And gently roll it out. Gives more room to work. I also had a swivel socket attachment which helped as well. Just my 2 cents
