Default Is buying an accessport for NA Impreza worth it?

Cobb does not specify that Impreza models have support thru them. Any help?

Cobb doesn't support N/A cars period. Been there, tried that. Bought a WRX.

They really missed the boat though on the FRS/BRZ.

They used to support non turbo cars like the rx-8 but haven't in years.

They used to have an AP for the manual NA imprezas. Probably pretty hard to find now.

I bought a Cobb AP for my new WRX. Then I got my WRX ProTuned for the price I paid for my AP via EcuTek. Sold AP for 25$ under what I paid for it.

The AP for NA was more for the MAP engines, not the MAF engines way back when. The MAP engines could use a bit of help, the MAF engines would adjust to get most of your mods.

There are other reflash routes.

I don't think its worth it but it's good to have for minor performance increase, it can be. I have one. for my Subaru impreza 2008 2.5i hatchback.

I'm still looking for one. My 2004 OBS Impreza has UEL headers and a high flow 200 cell cat with a full borla catback. It uses a MAP sensor and I want the AP before I do the cams, which I want to do when I do the timing belt and pump. I'm almost at 100k kms so I hope to find one soon.
