We just made a simple 3" intake tube from Vibrant parts, no MAF, velocity stack and big filter! I installed it before my touch up tuning with Junior yesterday. So now I have no restrictions from filter all that way out the dual exhaust!
A buddy of mine said I need to change the Killer B mantra to "Obsessively Engineered Subaru Performance Products"
IIRC, last I looked we had over 12K miles on it, so it's likely in the 14K range now with a couple of events too.
So what were the final results? Any leaps in power or just cleaning things up a bit?

If i understand correctly, is the nasty lip machined off to smooth aiflow in the 4" ported shroud?
Is there a piece added to bell it out?
Here is a pic of an intouched 4" GT3076
And here's the GTX3071 housing modifications.
CNC milled compressor housing with tapped holes (not thru)
Here's the adapter I designed with feedback from garrett. CNC turned from solid billet aluminum.
And the final product assembled.
I'm going to be making another one of these inlet adapters in the next few weeks so if you, or anyone else, is insterested let me know and I can get pricing.
