Default Cold air intake and or short ram for 07 impreza 2.5i

What's up guys I'm looking for a cold air or short ram intake for my 07 Impreza 2.5i. I found one through injen part number sp1222 but on the site it's calls for an 07 impreza 2.5i rs. I'm not sure if this will fit my car or if there is a major difference between my 2.5i and the rs model. If anyone has any info as to where I may find one or if the one I found will fit please let me know thanks.

There are 2 stickies at the top of this forum regarding CAIs/SRIs.

To make it easier on you, here are the links.

If you're looking for a CAI or an SRI, stop looking. Unless you plan on getting a tune to go along with it, it'll **** up your AFR and the car will run like ass.

^not true, i've been running a sri for over a year now no problems. i know others that are running cai's and sri's, that have no problem too. if you guys want to go cheap just get a ebay one for the older 2.5's and get a maf adapter to connect to it; that's what i did and it works awesome. i'm using a 3in injen filter with it.

I have the Cosmo Racing SRI, but I have an accessport for the tuning. Love the sound and it feels much faster.

Just because it runs doesn't mean its ok. What are your AFR's? how about your D range trims?

What have you "tuned" on your ecu for the intake?

Lies.


You're about the 50th person to try and claim this. Every single person before you has, when they finally grew a pair and posted data, turned out to have the same problem as everyone else. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.

It doesn't.

You're just not aware of how much it's struggling.

i dont put stress on it and it doesnt get beat every day. i've read a lot already and people always say dont tune unless you get headers, intake, exhaust, and cams. i will tune mine sometime but for a daily driver it suits me fine.

all i got for mods are sti catback, sri, and sun automotive ground system with voltage stabilizer.

Dude, the lack of tune isn't the problem, it's the face that you've got an intake. Read the big sticky about why intakes are bad.

And changing the maf housing and moving the maf causes a whole different problem that absolutely needs maf tables to be corrected to fix.

Listen to willaty!!!!!!

He put in a lot of work and he did a massive write-up on this with data to back it up. read his sticky.

The helmholtz resonator ("snorkus") is the key. Without that, it goofs everything up at the low end. If you want proof just do this:

start your car, put it in first gear, do an aggressive WOT launch.

Your car will bog as soon as you start acceleration, fall on it's face, then it will straighten itself out and seem fine after it gets back up to higher RPMs. It falls on it's face because the MAF sensor has no idea what it going on for a couple of seconds and THAT is what can damage your car. I autocrossed my old legacy for a couple of years with a SRI before willaty gave us all insight on what was actually happening.

SRI= bad idea on N/A Subarus any way you cut it. His "hybrid" style is the only way to have an improvement over stock.
