Default AP Question...

I just recieved my Cobb accessPORT. I am going to be running the 93 octane stage 2 map. I know it says I need my stock intake on there, but I already have an AEM CAI. Can I keep that on there or do I absolutely need to put my stock intake back on? Will the map be screwed up if I kept it on there?

If the answer is yes I have to take the CAI off, is there anything I can do to the stock intake to help air flow out a little more?

Thanks.

You can get away with leaving the aftermarket intake on, you may lose a little with out the stock air box, but you should be fine. I have had my perrin intake with the AP for about 6 months with no problems, if the car runs funny switch the CAI out. You could even try it both ways for your own piece of mind, only takes a little while to swap between the two.

I think Cobb is coming out with a map for an intake in a while (read: a couple months). I'd take it out and just hang on to it until then.

I'm running st2 with stock intake and it's great. My friend is running a stage 2 AccessECU with a Perrin short intake, bigger TMIC and lightened crank pulley, his car runs great and pulls harder than mine.

Ive been thinking about getting the access port, but after reading the maps you have to have freaking stock everything. I have a TBexhaust minus the cat back... so what am I to do? Now I'm kind of hesitent to spend the money for one if it's not going to work right.

Thanks.
If you think you're "gaining" anything from that intake you're just kidding yourself to begin with. THe stock IS a CAI, AND it's designed properly. I would be hesitant to run an aftermarket intake unless I could monitor EGT's at a minimum, and better yet WB AFR's. If you have a TBE minus cat back (stock), you'll be good for stage 2.

Right, but I've read all the maps and they all require stock parts.... maby I read the maps for just stage 1.. I'm sure I missed something.

yea, you must have missed something.

I have a VF34 with MANY aftermarket parts on my car, and it runs like a champ (off the shelf mapping)!

Certain parts will "mess" with their generic tuning, and others will not. Read their website to find out which ones will and which will not.

Those aren't requirements. More like suggestions. They made the maps with stock this-and-that, but it does allow for some variations without penalty of death. It's definitely worth it, even at the Stage 1 level.

Take the intake off you will make more horse power and it will run way better with the factory airbox. Please take it off. The cold air intake map is made for a injen intake not a aem one. Cobb is comming out with there own intake and the only reason they are is becuase people keep asking for them not becuase it will make the car go aqny faster. FOR THE LUV OF GOD put the factory one back on

bluscooby the difference between the injen cold air and the aem cold air isnt gonna make a difference he can run that map and be ok even though he has an aem cold and not the injen cold air. BUT I AGREE TAKE IT OFF USELESS
