N. Florida area Question

Does anyone in N. Florida know of any really good places to take my car off road? I'm pretty sure they won't let us drive on the beaches, and I don't know of any off road tracks in the area.

There are plenty of 03's with low mileage. I just bought mine in February, it had 52000 on it. There was also one in Tampa with 43000 when I was looking. So, they're out there, just look a little.

Cobb AP??

Quick question, I thought I read somewhere that in order for the Cobb AP to work correctly you have to have a Cobb exhaust. Is this correct or just B.S. that a supplier put on their website?

Is the heat shielding around the turbo really necessary? Other than keeping heat off the intercooler, and keeping heat around the turbo, is there really any other purpose?
