Do I need a tune?

I have an 06 WRX with 3" straight turboback catless exhaust and a short ram intake. Should get a tune with this? Cobb access port maybe?

Yes you will need a tune. You can either buy an AccessPORT and flash to a Stage 2 map, get an OpenSource protune from a tuner, or buy a Tactrix cable and get an OpenSource map from online sites like XPT or Torque Performance.

If you plan on staying with the current mods for a long time, I suggest an OpenSource protune from a reputable tuner. Best bang for the buck and will get most out of the car.
