Default ram air intake for gc

Okay so I have yet to see another intake like this one, it was apparently fit to a 2001 impreza 2.5rs and Im intending to install it in my 2.2 impreza. I noticed after the winning bid that it does not have a grommet/fitting for the intake temp sensor that is on the 1999 stock air box. Will I be fine just taking a step drill or hole saw to the pipe before the -> throttle body coupler? Or is there some specific math and measurements Ill need to map out for proper sensor reading?

I was also wondering if anyone has seen this setup before and has any info on it? The gent I picked it up from said he got it from a "Scooby motorsports." Pics of intake shown below for reference and a little bit of boasting lol

Looks like a gravel sport intake. They were popular on the map efi cars. Wet filters can be a problem in rain. And more than a little water ingestion is not a good thing either.

If it's just a temp sensor it should be ok anywhere it is not effected by heat from other things near by like exhaust, etc.

Okay thanks I was finally able to get some kind of info on the thing, I guess theyre not as rare as I hoped. I suppose my next concern is will I be able to make use of the front upper strut bar I ordered? I haven't found any pics with both in the car..

I'm running map, I guess 99 was the first year to do so. trust me if it was maf I'd do the hybrid intake that my 98 legacy has been waiting for. I made the mistake of pulling a phase 2 ( map) motor and realized afterward that it won't work in my maf legacy. so now I have a spare buildable motor for my impreza and I'm picking up another phase 1 maf motor this afternoon to get the legacy going again

btw, a company called Gorilla makes a similar style intake and after much testing in heavy rain storms they never had issues with water.

Yeah it seems like a good product that was even used on a rally car and the dyno numbers show a gain of around 12 whp and 5 wtq. No issues with rain or snow.

I've been toying with the idea of finding a metal screen like the gorilla intake had and just spot welding it to the top cover of mine, mainly to keep the larger debris out of my filter. any thoughts? I already have the intake sanded down to repaint it.

It'll work, the amount of air flow loss would be negligible.

The final product, of course Id prefer a new filter to optimize the difference with it but thatll come soon enough. I admit it looks kinda wierd but I like the green hood on the silver I have to admit I didnt expect to have a noticable difference with the intake alone but you can feel it as well as hear it.




@Imprezent: Now that I know more about them Ill keep my eyes open for another one available.
