Just installed the new Typhoon tonight and everything is running fine. No real throttle response but pulls easier and with a little more top end. Research before you buy and you'll be fine.

I'm running a ARC induction box. Throttle response is better, with more high end pull. I have not had any problems yet.

On a related note, is anyone running a different top mount intercooler with their AP stage 2?

I'm not, but on clubwrx I have heard of guys running even a frontmount and are doing fine. They said to buy an egt gauge to monitor levels, but they said really until stage 3 comes out you won't unleash the full potential. Hope this helps.

Lots of people have intakes with AP stage 2, haven't seen any real data yet (or any failures) that suggests there is an issue. Seems a bit ironic that Cobb says not to use ANY intakes, yet they're about to release one that will work fine....

After running for a few 100km, the intake is fine and causes no problems at all. The added sound is very addicting.

I doubt that the intake added much in the way of HP, but the combating sound of air sucking in through the intake and then blowing out of the BOV is crazzzzy!!!
i have a short ram, btw.

I have the Injen CAI and haven't had any problems with it. When I got my AP, I did have a problem getting the boost levels that I wanted but don't think it was related to the CAI. Also, I've read alot about a CAI making someone run lean, but I was actually running real rich... ???

I've got the old APS/Cobb Club Spec kit which has the APS intake. I'm running the stage2 reflash for 93-oct. The only problem I have is my belief that the map runs too rich, hence my little gas guzzler. I also believe it's due to the added fuel needed for the intake's greater capacity. I wish there was some way to lean the car out in open-loop mode, but Cobb no longer supports this old setup. Anyone got any ideas? Partially block the maf (a wag, to be sure).
thanks,
Darryl

Oh yeah,
Safe is safe, but I think Cobb is a bit too conservative in it's mapping. What vendor can achieve a more efficient tune with the stock fuel system?
me again
