I know the GrimmSpeed dp has a bung welded in the bellmouth section... I want to say COBB does too.

Cobbs does also. Do you have any type of EM (Engine Management)? If not you should look at that also so that you can get the most out of the DP.

I would look into engine management first. That way eveything else that follows (cold air intake, turbo back, injectors) can be tuned and you'll get the most performance out of your engine.

I have my old Accessport listed in classifieds if you're interested. The only problem is I lost the white connector and my tuner said I could specially order that from Cobb for like $15. The AccessPort is awesome though, I just purchase one for my new car.

Yes, you will need a tune of some sort after installing the downpipe. And +1 for the Acessport!

There's a few people I know that have full turbo back exhausts and no tune! I wouldn't recommend it at all. You want someone to tune your car and have it running safely.

It is pricey, but GREAT quality. Some guys get ones off ebay that are happy, others arent. I believe you get what you pay for (of course I have Cobb TBE, SRI, SS, and AP). Just something to think about, or also looked in the classifieds, someone might be getting rid of their used one.

The Cobb has a built in bung to plug in a wideband sensor. It's a quality piece and it's worth the money. It's what I run on my 05 and it fits perfect. +1 for the Cobb EM. It's plug and play.
