Just do it once and do stage 2 at your tuner who can open source tune it right there and then. An AP is fine if you are going strictly the Cobb route (which means you're buying only Cobb stuff, which is pricey) but varying from there means there's no guarantee. You're on your own.
I was under the impression that the Cobb AP already had the stage 1 and two maps built in, and you just picked which one? Or do you buy the AP with the stage 1 map on it and then have to buy further maps?
Really stage 2 would be atleast 2 years into the future, I'm just looking to get the sound of a cat/axle back and the little extra oomph of the intake and a stage 1 tune in the next year
