kenny'swrx is an unknown
New to modding as well , just picked up my 2014 WRX sedan

I ordered a CAI for it. After that im lost. I just want to get it to around 3HP. Any suggestions ? also Ive been told that once you get intake and exhuast done , then it needs to be tuned or I run the risk of damaging the engine ... is this true ?

Will post pics soon.

YES! Very true! You must tune for a CAI and DP (downpipe). If you don't you run the risk of doing damage and throwing codes, not good! You can pick up a Cobb AP and tune your car. The AP has pre-made tunes called OTS maps for your car. They have tunes for your car with just a Cobb intake, stock intake, or AEM intake. Also they have tunes for your car with one of those three intakes and any catted DP you install. Then it is highly recommend that you get a protune from a local tune/performance shop, that will put your car on a dyno and tune it. Or if you don't have any local performance shops then you can get an etune, which is used with the AP and a shop will work with you via email to get your car tuned correctly. You must tune for an intake and downpipe though. A cat-back does not need a tune if you want to get one right off that bat. Do your research before purchasing and installing mods to your car. It will save you time, money, and headaches in the long run. If you are unsure, then ask questions, by starting a new thread.
