Default Downpipe with AccessPort OR finish turboback?

I have a Helix uppipe already. I have in my possession a Helix v2 downpipe. I'm struggling between finishing my TBE with a catback (Borla Hush, to be specific) or getting AccessPort.

Gains of AccessPort with the downpipe alone are most likely greater than a turboback without tuning. BUT, I kinda like the idea of a full 3" exhaust now and maybe save for AccessPort a little down the road.

Opinions?

I was torn between the chicken answer and the AP/DP answer. I went with the Cobb.

(After all, when was the last time you saw a post about someone disappointed with a Cobb reflash?)

OK, since a good deal on my catback was staring me in the face, and AP isn't out yet, I finished the TBE. Not installed yet, but soon. Stay tuned for comments on TBE alone, then with AP added.

Accessport isn't even out yet so why not do the TBE. To take full advantage of stageII, you'll want to do it anyways. In fact, I would hold off on the dp install until you have the catback portion ready to go in, otherwise, it's just more work for you. Once the TBE is out of the way, adding the Accessport is pretty painless. Just start saving the pennies and you'll have it by summer.
