Default What mods should I do before I get a cobb accessport v2?

I have a 02 wrx with a 3 inch spt catback and a short ram intake..should I do more before I get EM, or does it not matter cause I can retune with the cobb v2 when I do get new things? Thanks for your input and if your not going to be nice then just go to a different thread Thanks

A cat-back exhaust and you can do Stg1.
Add an aftermarket downpipe to that and you can do Stg2.
It's all laid out pretty clearly on the Cobb website as to what mods go with what OTS maps they offer.

Otherwise if your asking what you should do before you get it pro-tuned?
Tuners often charge quite a bit of monayy, as in 300+ dollars to do a dyno tune, so I'd suggest getting your mods fairly planned out before doing so because it's a bitch to get it tuned, change your setup, get it tuned again, change your setup, and get it tuned again.

You should swap your factory airbox back onto the car. Then you should research and make sure you dont modify the car without having it properly tuned immediately.

you do not need any kind of air filter, it will end up running more harmful stuff through your engine
