I have been using the K&N Typhoon intake for 4 years now and it never gave me a problem before, during or after tuning.

Go with APS or KSTech. Best of the best, no negatives, and tuner reccomended. Cobb is okay, but steer clear of AEM and Injen with the Subaru. CAI vs SRI is up to you. Colder air with higher risk of hydrolock vs warmer air with more safety.

Ive hydrolocked a motor, SRI for me.

Looks like it's either polished or heat reflective tape was applied or are you talking about the notch that's in it?

If he is using a GR STi intercooler, they are somewhat larger than the previous models Sti timc.

Ok, yeah, he is using a newer GR STi intercooler. The notch is there for clearance on the firewall.

That's a little far; I'm in Seattle now. What I want to do is paint my fog lamp faux insert housing to match my new headlamps. Any ideas? Thoughts? I just feel like the black chrome is out of place on its own.

It is a JDM V7 STi TMIC - 17% bigger than the USDM TMIC. The top end is quite a bit larger. Also, it's heatwrapped

If I could find one I would go with the APS cai in a second. But they are out of business aren't they? All I can ever find is like a extension piece to make it go further into the wheel well...

Quick question. Off topic but I picked up a set of mint v7 projectors. Problem is that im missing a piece of the harness and what I do have was chopped into like 20 pieces. Any suggestions of where I could get the parts or how to go about getting them hooked up? I really need to get these in the bug eye. Thanks for any help offered!

I don't like it but it doesn't bother me because it does fit wagon lines better. I think its because the wagon looks longer and has the spoiler with a similar topline that reaches out like the scoop.
The sedan is less car and more stubby, which makes the large swoopy scoop stick out like a sore thumb.

^^ I was going to say I usually am not a fan of the 04/05 scoops on our cars but on that white wagon it actually does not look half bad. I wasn't sure if it was because of the camera angles, or just the over all stance of the car and unique mods that made it look better but maybe you're right maybe it looks better on wagons then sedans. I had one on my old bugeye sedan and at first thought "hey this big scoop is bad ass" but quickly realized It looked a little bit funny.


By the way guys any one in need of a stock bugeye hood scoop I have one in MBP and one in liner black, also have a stock wrx splitter! lmk!
