Default Cobb SF intake/ sf airbox without tunning?

http://www.cobbtuning.com/Subaru-SF-...t-p/715300.htm

Anyone know how good this is with a tune? Is it worth it? Will it damage the car without a tune and will I gain any power? Thanks all for the help

More of a noise maker than anything. Not necessary unless you're after big-time power.
Yes it can and will damage your car without a tune. Negligible power gains at stage one, basically just getting of the crappy, lean stock tune.

Read the last paragraph in your link there... under Calibrations, and use the search feature. This topic has been discussed thousands of times.

This thread is pretty much taken care of. But let me add that you need to fill in your profile because we can't even tell what kind of car you even have.

So your question is pretty redundant without that info.

I don't get it, instead of replying with links. Why not just answer the question real quick.



Anyways. Yes you need a a tune with that intake. With out a tune. The intake will cause your car to run lean, and that will damage it after a period of time.
If you want an intake. You must get a Cobb ap , or get a pro tune.

He's responding with links because this question has literally been asked thousands of times already. A simple search would have turned up those threads and many more.

Read the stickies, read the manifesto, read everything again, research more, then ask your questions, then read some more, then mod.

Probably because it's more valuable to teach someone how to use the vast online resources to find information instead of spoon feeding them forever.
