Default Does a cobb accessport only tune cobb parts?

If I get an accessport and I have an injen intake will it work fine, or would I need a cobb intake?

Before you buy ANYTHING. Research research research.

Read Cobb map notes as you'll have your answer.

Yes and no.

For intakes, the general answer is that you need the Cobb SF intake or stock. They also have an AEM intake version.

Exhausts on the other hand are completely different. For stage 1, you can run any catback or even stock. For stage 2, you can run any catted downpipe and any catback. Avoid catless because they can lead to boost creep/spiking. Others have no issues. It's best just to stick to catted here.

Now, that's mostly for a '02-07. '08+ might be slightly different with the intakes, but exhaust info is still the same.

My question to you is how are you running an Injen intake right now? You have to be tuned for it. On a GD, it's risky, but on a GR it's downright dangerous.

And AP is simply a means of flashing a tune and storing it with the added benefit of data logging. What you need to understand is MAP NOTES for each tuning map.

Injen intakes are not supported by Cobb's OTS maps that you can download for free. A protune/e-tune would be needed to run that intake safely.

Injen intake is fine on a 1998 Honda Civic. Since you didn't tell us what you drive and no one thought to ask, I'll assume that's what you're driving. Cobb does not support 1998 Honda Civics. You'll need to trade it in for something Cobb supports. A Subaru might be a good choice. Have you looked into Subaru? I've heard they're pretty decent cars with pretty good aftermarket support. I haven't heard of too many ringland or bearing failures with unsupported intakes with no tune. Might be something to look into while your figuring out what car you actually drive.

Just skip the intake then. Toss the catback on and run that stage 1 tune. Easy and works best. You'll see some small gains. The real gains come when you replace the downpipe and go stage 2.

Get the catback, enjoy the new sound you'll have from it. Once you feel the need for a tad more power, get the AP. If that still isn't enough for you, then get a downpipe and flash stage 2. Skip the intake, it's not needed. It's just a noise maker for the point you're at.

Good man, Your stock intake box is good to 400whp. All an aftermarket intake really does is let you hear the turbo spool better. On my old WRX I did an aftermaf hose, and snorkus delete (snorkus is a resonator that sits down in the passengerside fender well deisgned to quiet the cabin noise from the turbo)on the stock airbox and I could hear the turbo spool just like an aftermarket intake. On my 04 STi I bought the Cobb SF intake because it is designed to work like the stock airbox (as far as air velocity and turbulance that the MAF reads). If you can return the Injen intake I would.
