Since this is kinda the theme here I'll throw in a Q in this thread.

Im planning to get an AP when I buy my WRX (few weeks now) and I want to go to Stage II. I understand that this is a DP and Catback system, plus the AP correct ?

I was wondering, should I install the exhaust system THEN instal the AP ? Or vice versa ? Is it safe to instal the exhaust before the AP ? What if I wanted to add an up-pipe into the mix ? would the OTS Stage II map be no good at this point ?

Any info is appreciated. To sum it up im just asking which parts can I add safely while using the OTS Stage II map ? Also Ive read the Stage II map is designed for a CATLESS DP and catback exhaust. If I use Cobb's DP WITH their high flow cat, am I going to run into issues ?

BTW my WRX will be an '04 if this makes a difference.

Install the exhaust first then flash stage 2 if it's 1-2 weeks difference. After installing the exhaust take it easy. Why not just wait and do it all at once just to be safe. But you can flash to stage 1 first and after the exhaust install flash to stage 2.

I was going to instal the exhaust then flash with the AP immediately. But what do u mean take it easy after I install it ? Is there a certain amount of time i should drive conservatively after doing so ?

How about up-pipes ? If I install that will my stage II OTS map be doing me no good ?

And also I'll re-ask, they say the Stage II is designed for catless DP. If I get the high flow catted DP from Cobb will this still be ok with the stage II OTS map ?

Oh...I thought you only can get one or the other. In that case it don't matter which is installed first. Catted dp is fine with stage 2. You could install a up pipe or not don't matter but you do benefit from it. Change out the up pipe or get a gutted one since you replacing dp anyways. Half the work is alright done from the dp.

Assassin4457, the AccessPORT has not been engineered to be compatible with any other vehicle than a Subaru...I just wanted to make sure you were aware of that. I truly hope all is well with your vehicle, but I highly suggest you make sure the parts you use are engineered to work well with your vehicle. I am not trying to piss you off or insult you, but we have never tested the AccessPORT on a Saab so we have no idea if it even works.

Take care,
Christian.
