To my knowledge subaru found a broken tee in a vacuum line and reolaced ot but thats all I know of. We did a reading on tactrix and the air learning is maxed so were pretty sure the maf needs to be scaled because it need to be smoothed out.

Dude I would just ditch that intake and find a stocker asap. With basically everything else stock you really do not gain anything except for a ****ed up idle. Hit up some salvage yards, you're bound to find one for cheap somewhere.

What year car (hopped on CPU, 05)? Miles? Maintenance history?

1)
As SVT said, get a stock air box. Intake doesnt do anything for you. Stock airbox is good to 300+ whp. Some say 350+.

I bet you can find a nasioc member to give you one for cost if shipping or a six pack
2)
New plugs?
O2 sensors? I was fighting an 02 sensor for 3 weeks with ~500 miles on it so they can **** out at any time

3)
Most people here know more than a tech. There are great subaru mechanics at the dealerships, but how big of a priority is a roygh idle to a mechanic at GR suby dealer that sells Porsche and Audi?

Definitely. Well I did find a guy that just put up the version 2 accessport for $75 just because it needs to be divorced at cobb. Thats worth it right?

Do glad you're going back to a stock box! Like Levon said, the stock box is rated to a waaaay higher power level than you're at, so the intake doesn't do anything for you other than FSU.

Remember to reset your ECU so it can relearn the correct values.

They'll do it, but I think it's a 300 dollar charge.

Disconnect negative cable, and pump the brakes (it will drain all stored battery trying to light up the brake lights) a handful of times, then just reconnect the negative.
