Default injen cai intake

I just got a injen cai intake off ebay. looks like a pretty good system. anyone have it yet? i know that it came out just last week but i thought that someone out there might already have one. just wanted to know if its comparable to cobb or ganz? let me know if anyone has any info.

Installation looks like a pain. Servicing the air filter when it gets dirty also looks like a pain.

Since one bend in the intake is not smooth and since air has to change direction too many times, I doubt that the intake will be able to maintain high air velocity into the throttle body. As a result, you might experience a loss of low-end torque. Heck, you already lost the torque box.

who needs to clean their airfilter? and as far as the torque box goes, except for the ganz, everyone looses it so i didnt think i could win with that. i wanted to get the compass motorsports intake but i know that they are having a few problems. ive been calling cobb for the longest and they have been having problems with getting the piping, so therefore i thought i'd try this out. i figure buy the time that i have to clean the airfilter something else should be out, or at least in stock by then. the intake should be here by next week so i'll post how much of a pain in the ass it really is to put on and all that jazz. wish me luck.

Not everyone loses the torque box. Here is a picture of my PDM intake:



Only one bend in the pipe. No loss of low-end torque for me.

Here is a pic of my COBB intake, it did take about 5 weeks, but I believe it was worth the wait!

The PDM intake is just an old Ganzflow design.

No argument from me here. I never claimed it wasn't. However, it is a 3" polished pipe that provides a smooth path for the air to flow. I think the old GanzFlow is only 2-1/2" in diameter.

i think the injen intake has way too many bends. might have some restrictions. also i would be extra careful when driving when its raining and through puddles. my jc sports intake is good enough for my car. the other intake i would consider is the compass one. but also it will cost alot of $$$ then it comes out.

hey, im mad now! ive been calling about that intake for weeks and i called last week and he said 3 more weeks!! otherwiwsed that what i would have gotten, yes i have a 2002 BUT it is the same engine and it would fit, but i instead went wit AEM ram air which is quite lovely. I wanted cold air for top end but im surviving with low end torque that is insane. i hear ram is better especially if you ruin the 1/4 mile rather then distance runs.

Yea i know there was some confusion on when it was going to be released for the rs. they told me weeks blah blah, then i got on ebay and there it sits. i emailed the people who are selling it and they said that they just got it in this week. I know that the injen intake for a wrx is pretty dope and its pretty high qaulity so i figured id give it a shot. i got a question for some people that i hope someone might be able to help me out on. in the pic above they took the whole front assembly apart, do you think i can get away with jacking the car up, taking the wheel off, and taking the inside of the wheel well out? and then of course putting it all back together. just an idea.

thanks

Give your head a shake man. You have it backwards. PRM is Canadian company that makes the intakes for both Larry and Cobb.

PRM makes Cobb's intake, not Larry's. PDM is just a copy of Larry's original design. I'll ask Larry next time I talk to him to make sure. Richard is right about the diameter though.

Talking

Here is what I know:
1. PRM makes Cobb's intake. PRM intake = Cobb intake(only apply for NA intake)
2. Larry makes Ganzflow intake; Larry sells PRM Racing inline air filters(same filter found on PRM/Coob intake); Larry sells MAF adapter to help you build your own intake(Oh Larry, you got everything!)

JC and Altibaby, you got it right

The old intakes were 2.5", now they are 3". And, I also sell complete Cobb intakes as well as what Altibaby mentioned, for those who insist on those
