im still tryin to figure out whats better, the cobb sf intake or the stock air w/ the k&n drop in or the perrin short ram (requiring a pro tune) if u rr just running a cobb tune then u only have the oprtion of a running a aem or cobb sf intake. its hard to tell whats the best because no one has ran all of these options! im glad u r happy with the aem tho cause that crosses off one of the options. oh and good luck with the aem cai!

It's not tunable via Cobb ap. any intake upgrade even a panel drop in requires a tune

I had the Cobb sf aka dream box and hated it. Dream box is just a funny name a buddy and I gave it. Aem cai is one of the best. I love it. Andy can vouch as well

14WRX either use what works with the Cobb maps or protune for the intake. Changing intakes can skew the MAF readings.

Knowing that the Cobb AP does not support the K&N intake that pretty much seals the deal on that. The AEM is seems to get some good reviews. Guess I will have to look into that some more and add it to the future mod list.
