Default GANZFLOW vs COBB CAI

Ok, just a quick question. I've been through everything here, but would like to buy today. Question is.

Which one?

Both are same price, but which is better?

Please give me your thoughts and knowledge.

Which one do you run? How was it to install? Do you love it? and why?

Putting this into a MY00 RS

Cheers

William

I didn't use ALL caps

I seriously thought that you couldn't put ALL caps in subject line.

SORRY!!!!

Can I change it?

Anyhoo.

Cobb huh. And the cobb is louder?

Annoyingly? or boxer-licious?

Also, for the MY00 do we have to jack the car, and remove the tire to remove the stock air box? Cause it looks as though mine is sitting IN the engine bay on the left fender front.

What kind of HP/torque gains can I expect?

Cheers

William

BOTH of them are the same price now? Did Cobb bring the price down or did Larry up his?

Well the general consensus is that the Cobb intake is the better of the 2(not by much though).

Jason(happy with his ganzflo intake and stock filter )

BTW - the intake install is very simple. All you have to do is unscrew some bolts, remove the snorkus assembly(airbox too if you're doing the cobb), and stick in the intake(I left out some details but you get the idea). I did mine extremely slow cause i'm paranoid like that and it took me like 20 - 30 minutes. Knowing what to do now it would probably take me like 10-15 to put one on.

i believe the ganzflow will provide more torque gains since it retains the factory airbox which provides for standing air. other than that they should be about the same. i also thought the ganzflow was cheaper. its $109 right now with shipping.

So now I'm confused.

Will I loose my low end torque if I get the Cobb?

Please Help!

Depends on what you want...

Cobb is the best, bar none, but more expensive. The sound is great, not too loud, and only when you stomp on it.

Ganzflow is the best for the money, but not as good on the top end, and the sound isn't as ravenous...

It's up to you, but if the $ isn't a huge issue, I recommend Cobb.

Hope this helps

Money is not the issue.

I just want the best for my money.

Looks like I'll be ordering the Cobb then.

The cobb is better, the stock airbox does pretty much nothing. The only thing the stock box is there for is to provide a large quantity of air immediatly when you step on the gas. So it basically makes up for the poor flow from the stock piping for quick stabs at the gas. Top end is horrible.

The Cobb does not loose any tourque noticeably. High end is better than any intake out. Plus it comes with the best filter you can buy. Go to www.imprezars.com . Even Larry himself says the Cobb is better. Calls it a "Stage 2 Ganzflow" or something like that.

Question is, how well does the COBB intake work with the MY99 RS with the MAF sensor? any problems with sensor burnout, will i need to also install a SuperAFC?

edkwon - the cobb won't work with the 98/99s in it's native form. I've heard of folks getting them, splicing in the MAF, and using the kartboy MAF adapter.

the only fear I would have would be blowing the MAF due to vibration. but if you can secure the MAF (like Peaty did on his) then you should probably be fine.

Eventually, I'm going to do it. but for now, I just did the cone filter (that's my car on imprezars)

as for the safc, I'm pretty sure it's a must have with the 99s (98 uses a different MAF)
