Default Cold Air intake

i was curious to know if there were any cold air intakes that would fit my 1995 impreza 2.2 litre, because ive been asking around and looking everywhere and havnt found anything. So if i could get some help that would be great thanks.

Did you try the search function in the NA forums? That'll get you results, look for pictures that may help you, and look on Ebay. You can probably get the pieces for it pretty cheap.

Whoa, before you go spending $140 on a colorful pipe, try fitting on a cone filter first. I have done this to 3 of my 1993 Legacys, and it works just fine. Take the stock airbox off, cut off the screen part of the MAF in the front, and just fit a cone on to the MAF. It has worked fine on my subies and only costs $20.



Nice, easy, cheap.

Ehhhhh, hybrid or stock IMO... if you're stating with the stock ECU tune. Cone filters in general mess up airflow with the MAF... even the AEM velocity stack ones.

^^^ Yea but aftermarket piping won't really add any more horsepower than if you just put a cone on the end. If you have a flat K&N filter in your airbox, eliminate the airbox and get a cone. With my FWD legacy sedan, I saw a good increase in throttle response and a lot more power in the top end. My intake manifold is red because I painted it while I was rebuilding the engine. Not wrinkle red like I wanted, but I did not want to wait 5 days for shipping for the paint because the motor was ready to be dropped in, and I wanted to drive it. It's pretty simple job, take off the coil pack, plugs, fuel, vacuum, PCV and coolant hoses, coolant temp sensor, injectors, IACV, throttle body & cables and whatever else is attached to it. There are 8 bolts I believe (4 on each side), take those off, pull the IM out. Take off the fuel lines (pain in the a$$, I should have made braided fuel lines while I had this out) Cover up the intake ports on the engine so nothing gets in them. Find some red paint, lay on 2 or 3 even layers (Tape off all the openings and bolt threads, there are A LOT of them) GET NEW GASKETS, anytime you take something apart with gaskets, get new ones. Also, while you have the IM out, clean the inside & the runners, mine were very dirty. Brake parts cleaner works really well, just spray the crap out of it. Once everything is painted, throw it all back together and voila. ---NOTE--- If you do end up cleaning the inside of your IM and painting it, when you put everything back together and go to start your car, DO NOT BE AFRAID if there is tons of white smoke pouring out of your exhaust, it is just the remaining cleaning product being burnt off. Just let it idle until it burns it all off.

You really aren't going to be able to pull that much more hp off an intake. You might want to look into headers and exhaust...

^^^^ like I said before, getting an aftermarket intake pipe will not give you any more horsepower, so spending $130 on a colorful pipe is pointless and is a waste of money. Like medic said, if you want more power, look into an exhaust system, and possibly some N/A tuning. Other than that, the only way to get a really good increase of power out of you N/A car can only be done with some type of forced induction, or getting better cams.

haha i know you were talking about the colorful pipe, but wut if i buy like a pipe from homedepot or sumtin (hypothetically) could i make that an intake pipe and have it perform the same as the rubber one that i have now? If the pipes do nothing than id be willing to spend like 10 bucks on a pipe that looks better but does nothing...if that makes sense haha

Yes, I had an intake pipe on my old wagon that I got from home depot. Get a straight pipe and an angled pipe. Find some intake couplers, put it all together and there you go.

Yeah making a intake is way cheaper takes a little know how and some time but easily done...to bad you didn't have a newer car like my 99 no maf to deal with at all...but yeah you can get a maf adaptor some tubing couple adaptors and should turn out real nice or buy one whatever makes you more happy...and yes deff do headers

Injen CAi,with accessport tune and axle back exhaust and yes there are gains..mostly in the mid to top end than bottom. Also better gas mileage since your engine now doesn't use more fuel to sub for less air..great add on to get better gas mileage if anything and top end power. With tune at least a 10hp gain.
I'm also going Supercharged in a month so gona use the CAI with the centrifugal SC which should help with cooler intake temps aswell as dense air into intake manifold.
