Hey ya'll...I've been bit by the mod bug. I'm thinking about buying an Invidia G200 and their catted DP. Eventually, I want to by AP to be an official stg 2.
1. Is it necessary to get EM with my bolt ons?
2. W/o EM, will I get the dreaded CEL?
3. Any differences btwn the 04-05 airbox compared to my 06? (Looking at the K&N filter catalog at Advance auto parts, they don't have a drop-in filter for the 06)

Thanks for your help!

1. it is much safer to get the cobb AP w/ a downpipe to avoid boost creep and boost spikes. It also adds more gains.
2. It is possible that you will get a cel for overboosting/ fuel cut if you run without EM. Nothing is gaurenteed though.
3. I dont think teh filter has changed from 04/05-06.

1. no but i would HIGHLY suggest that you get some form of em (my vote goes to the accessport) and that you also get a custom tune as well.

2. with the catted dp, you shouldn't/

3.i'm 99% positive there is no difference

Thanks for the replies! Now I'm thinking either I'll do everything at once, or get AP and the DP for starters.

em is necessary for any safe and sufficient gains for the car...people who don't run it are reeree's.

pick up the AP first, then go from there...it makes all the difference.
