Default Injen in a 99 RS

Any one had any experience with the Injen intake in a 99 RS?
Do I will any kind of fuel enrichment with this system?
I am Solo Cross driver and I can not spare much of low end torque.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I haven't had any experience with the intake personally....I've read there is a hole for you to put the MAF sensor into though (you'd have to take just the sensor out of the big plastic casing)....but knowing our MAF's, this may not be the best for it. I can tell you though, that yes, you will need a "fuel enrichment" device to combat the lean-run conditions at about 5-5500 rpm's. A chip like the PRO ECM, etc would work (pretty cheap too)....but in my opinion the APEXi Super AFC is the best.....I have a JC sports torque chip in MY99 and haven't had any problems with an intake.....except that I've blown 8 MAF's.......

8 MAF's!! That's got to be a record. I've heard of people blowing 3 or 4 and thought that was extreme. You should get reimbursed for each one now that the recall is happening. I sure hope you kept the receipts or used the same dealership for each.

I had a intake similar to an AEM and it did run really lean in the upper RPM's, I to thought the ProECM would resolve this but it didn't so modified a Cobb to fit.

They should have records of your car and what services you've had there. Definitely try to get SOA to pay for those MAF's. We've known for 3 f**king years these MAF's were crap!! And now they finally just realized it. Notice how the MY98 and previouse are fine. In 2000 they went with the cheaoer (and less accurate) MAP system. IMO, in 1999, Subaru got some cheap ass deal on Bosche's hot film MAF. They had to know it was a mistake since they went to MAP the very next year!

Bastards!
