Your not stopping much with that.
Nathan, do you think the pod type intakes (I usually call these HAI - Hot Air Intakes) is any better then the stock airbox? I know the ECU on the WRX is picky so I want something that gives gains but not give idle problems and throw CELs. On my previous car, i had a PR CAI and that dropped my idle about ~200rpms but there was some gain but lost low end.
