Default Cobb Stage 2 Whats the differences?

Thinking about buying an Accessport within the next few days... I have a complete turboback system and all stock intake system, turboback is my only mod. What differences will I see if I add the Accessport stage 2 to my car? What will it do?

basically, it programs your cars computer to take note that it has a less restrictive exhaust and takes advantage of it reprograming timing, boost, all that stuff.

if you can drive well, around 13.4ish, again, if you can drive.

and it is worth the money in my opinion. above all i noticed the increased smoothness across the power band, in a close second is the holding of boost up top. and it does increase saftey compared to running a tbe w/o em.

There is a big difference. You should see better times next time you go to the track. The drivability of the car is much better too.

Well it's done I went to Gruppe-s and bought the AP and a complete 5 layer gasket set so I can install my new uppipe and get rid of the old leaking gutted one... So I hope I really enjoy this, I am going to a local dyno day so I will post numbers of my stage 2 with turboback as my only other mod.

You'll be happy. I think the difference between stock and stg 2 has been understated. When boost hits with stg 2, it's like getting punched in the back compared to stock (with stock pipes). I wouldn't call it smooth, but it feels much faster than stock, and the map switching ability is neat. Expect around 230 to the wheels.

Sorry, but to say 13.7 to 13.2 isn't "much of a difference", I'm not sure what you're expecting....

Dude, JUST GET IT!!!!


It's worth it if you have an 04 or 05. I just put it on my 04 wagon with my TBE and its like I have a whole new car! The boost comes on much much sooner, hits higher and is much much more smooth than compared to stock w/ TBE. You hear the turbo spool much more and finally you have soooooo many different programs you can flash onto your comp. theft mode, valet mode, econ. mode, etc...etc...

The only thing that I definitely need for this ride for power and engine management is a catless UP and a set of gauges!

hot-subaru is selling them which free shipping!!!! get one while they are HOT!

don't expect miracle out of AP... you'd better get a protune or PDX map to get the most optimized map. I have PDX map and it is night and day difference. Car pulls like crazy...

you send PDX your mod list. They email you a set of maps for $150, which you can use AP to reflash ECU.

So it is basically a protune without getting on the dyno and not having to locate a shop that protunes??I live in michigan and there are no protuners around!
