Hmmm, quick question... say If I got a Cobb stage 2 from ebay, and a UP/DP, its just a plug and play, or still needs to be tuned by a pro...?

If you are running the accessport, no tune necessary.

That post is a little misleading. You're right, but to get the most out of those parts a tune will be needed.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

Buy the AP, add DP and be happy. Tune when you can.

And if you can help it, do not use that economy map on your DP. I asked a Cobb dealer if I should use it when I'm not doing any spiriting driving, and what it would do. And his answer was "It will make your car suck, big time." LOL. I have stage 2, and with the stock 5mt I was getting 26mpg on the freeway, haven't tested it with the RA gears yet, hell havent even gotten on the freeway with 'em yet. Backroads baby!

Hahahaha. Ohh man. I wish cops weren't so harsh out here in SoCal. I just hate how the Ortega is screwed now, and fearing the Cook's Corner runs. My team goes through there and my leader goes more than I do, but the cops kinda freak me out. 2 speeding tickets for city streets, 36/37 in a 25. pulled over going 86mph, and almost got thrown in jail and car impounded. pulled over for *loud* exhaust in last car, my 02' Legacy, and a sobriety check. I kinda have bad luck... sorta. >_>

Doesn't have to be a Honda to be rice... and just because you "race" in a twisty road doesn't make it any better.

Careful, your gonna kill yourself before you can even become a "Future US Army "Gun Bunny""...

+ a million with Herknav....
If you want to get your thrills take it to a track.... On the streets too many innocent bystanders could get hurt... One of them could be someone I care about...
