I did it was an injen CAI which I am selling for $130. It is a good setup too. But I like the sound and response from my SRI.

so jerry, right now i'm running the cosmo SRI with the K and N cone filter.

between the hybrid intake and the SRI, which do you prefer, since you've had hands on experience with both setups.

I'm still contemplating if I should give the hybrid a try or just stick with my SRI.

same, cosmo racing SRI, with KN cone filter. but also running grimspeed TB/IM spacers and my own vac lines. 97 impreza L. can tell the difference, power and sound improved.

J-Chow, you have a good setup IMO. Although not the most powerful SRI, your cosmo is more power maybe a bit rougher idle than the Hybrid.

i know many say that it makes it run rich i believe williaty said, but what im going to be running is a hybrid intake, and then with the cold air torque box mod, which it a pipe shoved in the air into the fender where the gourd used to sit, but i heat taped all the holes shut in my engine bay so my air is getting all sucked from the fender well where it is colder and it has given me better throttle response by just doing the cold air mod, but i havent recieved my sri yet to finish the hybrid setup, so i will post in a thread sometime within the next week hopefully on what my results are, so look for "hybrid cold air torque box setup"

What SRI kit are you buying?
If possible and you have not tried this, I recommend that setup a SRI first with that kt. Drive that around for a few days. Remember how it feels, then change to whatever (eg hybrid) you intended to (modify the same kit if you have not totally screw it up) and compare that to your butt memory of that previous SRI. That was what I did at least.

im going straight to hybrid, williaty's tests have proven that hybrid is the best option out there, unless you have a MAP car, then a gravelsport is where its at, but thats besides the point, sri will make the car run like ass, not to the ear or maybe the buttdyno but internally it is rich and will not last near as long, williaty is the subaru car god so ima leave it up to him to tell us whats best..
