Just to confirum (dumb question), but for the Baja turbo, I would order the SPT intake for the Legacy and not the WRX, correct?

Also, regarding the OEM plastic air duct: Why the heck does the Baja turbo one have it if it just blows down on the fender/wheel well? Is it just to help cool the engine compartment? I don't get it. The non-turbo one makes sense, however, as it goes right up to the air filter.

Unless the Baja turbo one DOES go to the OEM air filter (I haven't looked under my hood in a while). If that's the case, why not remove the duct entirely if you have the SPT intake now?

I am pretty sure you would neeed the STI/WRX one, the legacy one has two bends instead of one and is made for the current style legacy. Our intake is pretty much the same as the WRX/FXT.

The factory air inlet for the baja turbo goes from the scoop behind the grill, into the passenger side fender area, through a resonator (silencer or "snorkus") and then back into the engine compartment into the airbox. All of that can be eliminated with the use of this intake.

Is the SPT filter pre-oiled? I presume one would treat this much like a K&N where you clean/re-oil it periodically, or do you just replace the filter? Notice they sell replacements at the link posted previously.

Okay, another question and I'll shut up and buy it already:

Since our front-end is the same as the Legacy/Outback, wouldn't I need to get the heat shield for a Legacy so it fits? Or is it matched to the intake somehow?

This doesn't mean they don't have one generic picture for both the STI and Legacy, but just make sure you order the STI one, not the Legacy one, regardless of what the picture looks like.
