If you are a new person to the wrx scene dont let anyone fool you into doing the silencer mod without the elbow that goes in place. If you take out the "silencer" the possibility of sucking water is almost certain. without the elbow dont even think about it.

Please provide documented cases. I have been driving without the snorkus or a replacement elbow for 2 years.

Also, what do you tell people with CAIs! I guess they have to trailer their cars everywhere.

Are the DRL disabling instructions applicable to the 2008+MY Imprezas?

Maybe it's just me, but can anybody explain to me the POINT of doing the Silencer Delete?

(I'm NOT running a turbo, so is this something useful only for the turbo models?)

You can disconnect it if you can work with a soldering gun, this way it can be place back if needed.

PS: On late models, the chime that beeps for "door open" is also the chime for "you left the key in the ignition" and "put seat belt on".
That link doesn't work.

Found it.

There are some states that require DRL's? I never knew that! Damn I learn something new everyday! LOL.... oh and I have a question OPer for disabling the DRL's is that for all subaru years or just certain years? When i was installing my HID's i noticed the DRL was plugged in and I just unplugged it.

It basically just gets rid of a bottleneck for the air going towards the filter. The snorkus is a water trap, but if you don't get massive flooding where you live, it's not very necessary. For turbo cars, the sound of the turbo spooling up is a bit more pronounced.

Thanks for this "cheat code". I hate(d) the seat belt chime when driving short distances...

okay so i have a 2002 wrx with a missing fender liner so the intake snorkus delete should be easy. my question is, is it okay to run it without anything there to replace the snorkus? or do i need one like this guy

http://www.flex-innovations.com/elbow_delete.htm
and will it get air flow WITHOUT a snorkus??

Yeah, it will just get air from the fender. If you leave the intake funnel on, it will blow air into the fenderwell also, but if you remove that you should really plug the hole with a fender plug.

If you use that snorkus delete elbow, it replaces the snorkus and connects the funnel to the air box just like the original unit, but doesn't make the air go through the water trap.

Depends on what you replace it with, if anything.

If you use a snorkus delete elbow, so that you're still using the funnel over your grille, the only con is if you drive through water up to your hood, you'll suck it into the airbox. Chances of that? Hmm. That snorkus deal traps water in the bottom while letting air flow up to the airbox.

I used a 3" 90-degree PVC elbow trimmed a bit and shoved it from inside the airbox into the fender. It's high enough that water isn't really an issue. Then I took the funnel off and plugged the hole with a fender plug from SGP.

If you just take the funnel and snorkus out, you now have a small gap between the airbox and fender that can pull in hot air as well as the big hole left over in front of the airbox.

Pro: sounds pretty and less restrictive.

Con: chance of water in the intake due to swimming with your car. I live in SoCal, so this is really not an issue for me.
