Im confused... Your topic says "STi horsepower" but you said you have a WRX. Which one do you have? This makes a difference in the answer.

I wasn't talking about getting a CAI. You would need a tune with a CAI. To be honest, most intake mods are not very effective at the lower tuning levels. Nothing wrong with a K&N tho.

You do not need a Cobb exhaust. You can run an AP with an otherwise stock car. If you plan on running stage 2, you need to at least have a downpipe (it doesnt matter what kind).
