Default Cobb intake

I own a 13 wrx and I purchased a Cobb intake for it. My question is what's the best way to tune it. Cobb AP or open source. I checked out torqued performance and they seem very good for the price and I can do everything at the computer. But with the cobb ap it's a lot more expensive but a lot easier to tweak things. I mean they even have an intake map built into it. Any suggestions?

neither option is easier to "tweak things" as you need to know what you're doing first.

the easiest option for you is to grab the AP and flash stage 1 + cobb intake.

Gotta agree. Although opensource isn't bad. The last thing you should do is tweak things unless you know what you're doing.

Weird, never knew that INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR dealt with Tunes and Intakes.

Hell, maybe even if the OP search for 2 seconds before wasting money he would know that Cobb doesn't support 2013's yet. So even if you bought an AP you wouldn't actually be able to tune anything.

Simply put, AP is great for the user that doesn't want to deal with a laptop and cable, and wants the power to monitor from a handheld device. OS is great for a more technical user, and requires you to use your own laptop. But searching would have yielded this. Or even reading UNABOMBERS MANIFESTO in the newbies section.

I went with the AP and eventually a TP stage 1 tune and and completely happy for the moment. What I plan to do however, is when I finalize my mod plan, sell the AP and get a protune for everything and call it a day.

I wouldnt get a protune until I knew I was done modding for a bit, but it's absolutely worth it.

~500 for the AP, which are maps made for the mass. Safe, but not tuned for your car, conditions, etc (can you go used? IE is the 13' still taking the AP-003?)
~300 for a Protune which would be specific to your car.

By the way OP, Cobb doesn't 100% support the 2013 models, so an AP wouldn't be able to do the job until its supported (hopefully through an update). Also just be sure that you know that Cobb states that their SF intake is (currently, it will probably be changed) only for the 2008-2012 models.
