Question Cobb Power Package One

My birthday is later this month and the old ball 'n' chain said that I can get some stuff for my Sube, within a reasonable price. My car is stock right now. I wanted to start with an intake and exhaust.

I saw the Cobb's power package one, that includes an intake, muffler, and mid-pipe, for a supposdely 20hp gain. I think the price is about $850, which I think is reasonable.

In searching the forum about Cobb stuff, almost everybody has good things to say, especially about their intake.

So a few questions about this package and mods in general:

1: Does anyone have this package? Is it worth the money?
2: Is it easy to install? Is it something you can so yourselves? (Note: I am very inept when it comes to cars. It took me hrs to change the bulbs!!)
3: Will adding a new intake and exhaust void your powertrain warranty??

Any feedback will be very appreciated.

Dave

I have it, and it is pretty cool. There are other things that are a bit better but a bit more pricy (e.g., MRT exahust system).
I have no complaints. The intake is AWESOME, and the stromung dual tip and mid-pipe are great too (get the full SS one). I cannot testify for the power gain of 20 HP.
In my opinion, this is the best thing given its price.

my .0000002 cents

The 20HP is peak gain, close to redline. You won't touch it in normal driving. It'll sound cool, though .

Thanks for the advice.

About the other 2 questions. Is it easy to install for someone that is mechnically challenged?
And have you ever had trouble with a dealer trying to deny coverage b/c of the mods??

Thanks

Dave

Most dealers are cool about bolt-on mods. Once you start messing with the internals (camshaft, pistons, etc.) is when they get touchy.

The only tricky part of the install is the UD pulley. The gains from that part are questionable, so you might want to just get the other bits, and skip the pulley. Or, do everything but the pulley, and have that installed professionally.
