I intend on going with an aftermarket charge air cooler as well. The Cobb requires you to remove the grille flaps, buts Id kinda like to keep them for those highway drives.

Most larger FMICs will require removal of the AGS.

The Cobb IC kit is great, but will come with new cold and hot charge piping. If that's your goal, don't waste money on the Buschur pipes which you'd be replacing.

I already took those aero grill peices out and have not really noticed much difference in gas millage, so far with Cobb intercooler and intake and exhaust I've been getting about 27 on 93octane. Have not driven the car to ard yet but once steeda short throw arrives I'll be trying some new power shifting.

Ps love the Cobb RMM

AP is a good buy. Get it from FSWerks so you can use all the Cobb OTS tunes and have Randy's custom tune.

BOV is a waste, don't bother. The stock BPV will outperform any BOV currently offered for the ST.

I don't have the part # handy, but I found it easily on the Bilstein website when I looked last.

Yep, I've got the AccessPort with the FSWerks tune, and I love it.
