you have to be careful buying one used. The owner has to unmarry it from their ecu. If they don't do it correctly, then your screwed. I believe its three or four hundred dollars to send it back to Cobb, and have them re-do it.

I bought mine used, but at the same time, you kinda have to trust that the seller knows what the hell he's doing.

You probably wont see a legit used AP for under 500 bucks.

I've read a few threads about people buy "unmarried" AP's only to find that they were not really unmarried. It is kind of a risk; you could end up spending more than a new one after buying it used and having Cobb fix it. If it's on ebay, check the seller's feedback percentage and also the number of transactions.

Or, you could try to find one locally so you can check it before you hand over your cash.

Good luck, you will love Stage 2.

YGPM = you got private mail.

I saw your thread and I sent you a private message regarding my AP. My car was totalled and I have no use for it.


Anyway, just trying to help.

I got my AP used from a guy here on the private wanted forums. Works great, and the guy was very responsive to my questions and such.

If you're going to go used, just ask the potential seller the right questions (are you SURE it's unmarried, did you have any problems with it, were you the first owner, etc.) and go from there.

Couldn't be happier with mine.
