Default Cobb stg 2+ map?

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone is using one of the new stage 2+ map from Cobb, and wondering if it would be worth it. The only difference between the stage 2 and stage 2+ is the addition of their Sf intake and 3 port ebcs, and of course the map.

I have a 2005 Wrx sedan with Cobb up and down pipes, catback, Cobb Sf intake/box/post maf hose, Perrin turbo inlet, Samco ic hose and Cobb stage 2 93 oct ots map.

So all I would need is the 3 port ebcs and the new stage 2+ ebcs ots map.

Jw if anyone has used this yet and what everyone thinks about it. Thank you!

Do the map notes state to add a 3 port? If so, and you meet all other criteria, then yes that would be all you need.

A 3 port will give better boost control, and if that's the only difference in the maps then you'll likely not notice anything different about it.

You shouldn't need the ebcs for Stage2+...Youde need someone to modify the tune or find a reliable tuner/awd dyno and get a pro tune.

Just wondering if anyone has used this Stage2+ map and ebcs.

If you scroll down on that link you poster you'll see that the descriptive text for the ebcs say "this requires additional tuning. Please click here for a list of custom tuners"...you do not need the ebcs if you plan of keeping off the shelf tunes.

Cobb has some OTS tunes for some WRXes that support the Cobb EBCS.

Whether it's worth the roughly $100 to add the EBCS, or whether the OTS tune is adequate (or safe), I can't say from personal experience.
