Default Intake/Exhaust w/o EM or tuning...bad idea?

Is putting a cold air intake and turboback exhaust a bad idea without tuning or mapping? I've seen discussions on here about whether tuning is a good idea or not but what affects will Intake and Exhaust have without tuning...good and bad?

exhaust will be fine on your car ( 02-03 )

Intake is ALWAYS bad on the wrx, without a tune for it... Throw on your exhaust, but stick with the stock airbox until you can get a custom tune

Do you think HKS uppipe/downpipe along with Borla Hush Cat-back would be a good exhaust...i want to keep it fairly quiet.

Posting without searching is a bad idea too as this has been discussed in the sticky posts at the top of this thread under the Unabomber's Manifesto as well as 85,932 times in this forum and the engine management forum.

The hush is a nice catback, but the HKS downpipe sucks...

if you don't have time to research for whatever you are buying, you probably shouldn't buy it then. read unabomber's manifesto.

And yet you expect all of us to have time to answer a question again, that we have answered so many times before? Well, I have a good detailed answer for you but I don't have time to type it...

HKS DP Sucks.

Intakes generally suck.

That's all I have to offer.
