Default Cobb Stage 2 93 Octane Aem Map w/ Perrin Intake

I'm assuming it isn't recommended by anyone but has anyone ever tried Cobb's OTS Stage 2 93 Octane w/ Aem Intake map on a Stage 2 car w/ the Perrin CAI instead? I'm just curious about the results but do not want to be the guinea pig as I like my car too much

If you want to run a Perrin intake, why don't you purchase a Perrin map? I don't know much about them, but surely they would make thier intake compatible with their maps.....

Using an intake that the map is not designed for can/will result in incorrect airflow calculation (and therefore load), which results in the incorrect injector pulse width calcuation as we as the incorrect fueling and timing targets. This can certainly be dangerous as a situation of running too lean and/or running too much timing is a possibility.

Perrin sells maps that are compatible with their intakes. That is your best bet.

Yea I would suggest getting a protune. This way it's designed for UR car not just a basic setup. I blew my motor cause my tune wasn't right for my car. Don't play around with that stuff. It can cause a big headache in the long run. And a good protune from a good tuner is usually around $200 to $400. I say its worth it over a $6000 engine build.

I should have re-phrased the post, I definitely didn't mean I was considering doing that, just curious as to why it was a bad idea and my question was answered! I'd love to do a pro-tune someday. I'm sure it will be a breath of fresh air after running OTS maps. On a side note, I have the Perrin map right now (and have posted logs in another post). The car runs great w/ limited feedback knock if any during my runs, only thing that isn't making me 100% happy is the fact that I can't clear 17.90 psi which is far from their boost target of 19.0 so I feel like there's something left to be desired.
