This is another choice.

I'll knock it out and report back here.
Let me know how that goes! You should take some pictures cause I'm just weary on which piping I should order off ebay and if the install goes well for you, I can follow your steps! THANK YOU!

For people who have had a hybrid in their car for awhile have you noticed or dealt with any negatives?

Just wanted to share an observation!

Car: 1997 2.2ltr Subaru Outback Sport Wagon Auto

Had bogging issue when the rpm range is between 1k-2k. Coming off a dead stop, it feels like the engine cut off and come back on before proceeding. Figured it was related to what this thread speaks on. Used the SAFC NEO to dial back fuel at 1200rpm (-10) and 1800 (-7) and the bogging went away. It just accelerates smoothly from idle.

There are several mods but for the intake portion, it has a Stage 2 Ludespeed turbokit modified to be cold-air (Filter is in wheel well). That's all!

Yeah, I can see that working. The SAFC functions by using the MAF signal to lie to the ECU. In this case, when the MAF spikes up, the SAFC "lies" to the ECU and accidentally ends up telling the truth so the engine runs fine.

Unfortunately, for various reasons that won't work with the modern ECUs.

Has anyone seen http://www.siliconeintakes.com, or used their products? I haven't been able to find any SRI's on Ebay that fit the 3-4 year old images on this thread and don't want to buy the Cosmo kit if I don't have to.

Any suggestions you have would be very much appreciated.

Has anyone thought of contacting Injen or another intake manufacturer to see if they have ever experienced this when testing their product. If so why don't they fix it?

Injen made a new super-expenive intake just for the 05 plus cars after an owner donated his car to them for several weeks because he wanted an intake that didn't have this problem. He handed them the data from this thread.

The intake they produced was exactly like other intakes and had this problem just as severely as a $20 eBay intake but cost over $300.


So, why don't they fix it? Because they don't give a **** so long as they can still separate people from their money.

That intake is nice. Knock out the extra tube for their "no maf scaling required", rescale your maf and put a proper transition on the throttle body join. It's expensive but there's nothing else like it out there cheaper. Be sure to isolate the metal tubing from chassis. The maf ground is an ecu reference ground, and has continuity through screws into the tube. Some folks get plastic screws and mica wafer to isolate the maf.

You can do it the williaty way for near same gain and cheaper, with less hassle and drivability without eleven thousand hours tuning and learning Subaru logic.

Their intake still has the big MAF resonance though. So it's not a simple MAF scaling required to make it work. It's a lot more involved than that.

Default Hybrid with Cobb AP?

I have a Cobb AP on the way for my 07 2.5i. I got some maps from Rallitek, and was curious if anyone has experimented with their maps designed for use with injen intakes? Does their map tune out the richness issue? Or would it be safe to run a map designed for a SRI/CAI with the hybrid design?

Cobb's tunes do not address or fix this issue at all.

does that hybrid intake with the metal pipe rather than the plastic from the stock air box create any negative effects? I'm just going for a dressed up intake and engine bay. I know this is an old thread but hopefully someone can help me out lol.

There's an airflow advantage of the smooth metal pipe over the corrugated (ribbed) sections of stock plastic intake pipes.

The tradeoff however, is that the system flexes less, which risks pipes popping off if you don't have enough flexible rubber or silicone connectors. No one has reported such issues however, it seems that the hybrid intake designs are sufficiently flexible, so I wouldn't worry. The stock design is basically just playing really safe, by adding a very flexible section at the cost of airflow.

Does that answer your question?

Yes it does completely Thank You! My only problem is finding the pipe that will have the correct ports for the stock vac lines and such that come directly off the accordion stock plastic pipe. any idea where I can find that? thanks again!

Does anyone know what fitting is used to connect the smaller vac line to the original line? What about the one with the sensor?

Anyone know if these intake tubes would work well for a hybrid intake?

For the price it seems like a good way to go.

I'm doing this setup myself. I'll be done it by Sunday, and I'll post up my opinion and findings, as well as my supplies and methods.


I kept the OEM piping size (3") with 3.5" hose clamps. The bungs etc. are yet to be drilled, so that's what I have to finalize.

yes, they would work. I actually used the same one when I made my first hybrid. The fitting will be tough, be sure to make the cut exactly where you want it, cause there's no going back once you cut the piping in half!

this is my ez30D intake:



it has one little needle shaped (big fat plastic spike thing) on the side of the "torque box". as far as i can tell it's MAP.

can/should i replace the section after the OEM box with the air filter? (the part up against the fender)

It probably won't hurt, very possibly won't help either.
