I just installed the same one on my WRX and I notice a huge difference! 2nd and 3rd gears pull like hell. I checked the filter for water (sinced it rained like crazy this weekend) and found very minimal amounts in the fender wall. Mesh fog light covers are definately in order! Can't wait for Blackhawk....

By the way, I found out this friday that my stock boost guage was leaking. The dealer ran some diagnostics and found that it was maxing out at 8psi of boost. They replaced it under warranty and it feels like a new car. Warranties are great!


later...

For what it's worth, there's a test on filters at Apexi's site that tends to show the Blitz filter is less than effective. I went with AEM and so far so good.

Those are some damn fine instructions! Takes the concern out of the loop when you see how everything disassembles. Nice work.

Obviously a newbie question here..but after checking the instructions would there be much difference between chopping off the silencer with the stock intake and using something like the AEM intake? The goal being increased airflow, wouldnt something with access to the front of the car..with air being forced in, be better then something that has to suck air in? like the AEM...

If I am missing something let me know, because I am contemplating doing the 'chop off the silencer' mod maybe this weekend....but if the AEM thing is better I might just order one of them.

Thanks
Sean
