Stage Two Plans... And my Questions/Concerns
Ok so I recently purchased and installed a COBB cat back exhaust for my 13 WRX, I plan to eventually plan to get the car to the point that I can do a stage two tune safely... That being said I know its a good idea to install a down pipe (pref with a high flow cat) and I have heard about an up pipe as well, but when I talk to my car savy friends about my plans they look at me like I'm crazy and tell me they have never heard of an up pipe. Is this not something every turbo car has? And how important is it that I install this for a stage 2? I also plan to get an intake as well and THEN tune the car after the uppipe and intake are installed together. Any suggestions for an intake brand? Lastly how safe would you say the COBB tuner is compared to taking it to a local shop? Either way I think I want to get the tuner for diagnostic purposes if I run in to any trouble down the road.
Thanks in advance!
