Cobb AccessPort is nice, you don't need to send your ECU out every time you want it reflashed.

I am leaning towards the Vishnu Xede system...only when they release a Plug-n-Play system. I had excellent results with their Stage 1 kit on my old '02 WRX and I an in love with their STi 3" TBE exhaust that I just received.

true...but I guess with so many variables on filter-type (oil/gauze/etc), intake length and design, among other smaller variables...Vishnu has decided that working with 1 model and 1 model only (stock box) this will allow them to have consistant and repeatable intake readings (both in temp. and flow rate).

Don'tget me wrong, I wish that I could run my hacked Injen intake with their system once I get a P-n-P, but I will just have to sell it for some gas $!!

I thought it was a commonly know fact that the stock airbox flows just fine unless you're going for huge hp.

what kevin said... most open intakes causes the MAF sensor readings to go all over the map and it's difficult to tune.

i remember an FAQ somewhere on nasioc but i can't find it right now
