Part # AVC-19002

I don't have one yet...does anyone know if it fits right into the gasket on the underside of the airbox? Will I have to remove the gasket? Will the velocity stack rattle against the inside of the fender?


It seems like a better option than duct tape or foam insulation, are there any downsides?

No rattles, squeeks, nada. You don't need anything else to hold it in. It fits tight in the OE airbox rubber. You'll need to bend the large lip a bit for inner fender liner clearance. No big deal, it's made of aluminum. Also, turn up the brightness on your monitor. You'll see the upper portion of the radius lip is held in by the OE wiring harness. That works!





Like Nike, just do it.

Akimoto motorsports velocity stack fits very nicely into the airbox gasket. It only needs a minor trim to fit the inner fenderwell radius. Just use some silicone goo to glue it to the fenderwell.

Question question

Is this "velocity stack" for people who did the intake mod to connect the gap betweenthe airbox and the fender?

Is that a one piece metal?
If it is, does it require to remove the airbox and put this "velocity stack" in? I notice that the 2 bolts that holding the whole airbox are very tight, I couldn't get it out.

Thanks

they have the silicone coupler there too if you want to replicate the WRXfx kit.

the WRXfx kit was a ripoff, wish I had saved $$ and bought through summit.

Yes, it fills the gap and is one piece.

No, you don't need to remove the OE airbox to install it. You do have to open the inner fender liner to gain access for the install though.

Looks nice, except that it may make it difficult to remove the lower half of the airbox. This would make it difficult to change spark plugs and anything else that requires access to that area.

Or, you play, you pay. Either one is applicable here.

Agree it's going to make some things more of a PITA, but worth it IMHO.

I just got a 3" to 4" pvc dryer vent reducer for a dollar in the dryer vent aisle at Home Depot to fix that gap. It may not exactly be a velocity stack but it fits perfectly and works fine for me and I'm not complaining

I did almost the same thing, can't beat it for the price and I'll bet that there is no difference in power between this and a velocity stack.

Two questions..

1. What does it sound like? Is it like the AEM with the loud sucking sound?

2. I have heard that the oil on the K&N filter can make the map sensor go bad. Are there any hi-flow filters that will not cause this to happen?

Can you tell me the right size for the PVC dryer vent?
3" or 4" ? of any size in particular?


Thanks

3" fits perfectly into the airbox, but 4" would fit better around the underhood "scoop". I cut and flared out the 3" to fit.

The actual item is called a 4" to 3" dryer vent reducer. It is a white pvc pipe in the dryer vent aisle (not plumbing) at Home Depot and it costs exactly $1 (atleast at the HD near me). The pipe has a 3" piece that fits perfectly to the airbox and extends out to 4" in diameter to seal the hole in the fender well. It's fits like a velocity stack but it's not really one since the 4" side doesn't flare out flush against the fender wall like a velocity stack should. I don't think you would really be able to tell the difference though and plus I think the 4" side extending out would block some moisture or debri coming from the fender. There are many other I-clubbers that have done this too.

Default Or.

when you remove the resonator hack off the lower "box" portion and you get the benefits of all this work for less time and $. plus it looks COMPLETELY stock.
