It's made a solid birch with hand polished aluminum slides. It's held to the floor by imbedded magnets, and split in two to allow access to the spare tire.




Feel free to tell me what you think.
Mine is similar. The fuel cap opens to a kill switch for the trunk mounted battery.

brcewane that's probably the cleanest hardwood trunk I've seen in a Subaru to date. Nice work!

I could not find a catch can that looked decent on the market, so I made one. I have an AOS prior to the can so I don't have any fluid in it yet. I might not be as pleasing to look at with a bunch of oil in it. We'll see.

I already had a dryer hose running through the old fog light area and into the fender, and found a some of these in the trash at work. Fire sprinkler head bezels:

Fog cover was all beat up anyway so no big loss if I end up hating it.

Clean, but can't you paint it black or WRB to match? It stands out a bit since there's nothing chrome or close on your car. Great plate, BTW.

Yeah I have left over wrb and was thinking about spraying it. It's not chrome but rather brushed aluminum, regardless I know exactly what you mean. I think I'll start with plastidip and see how I feel about it. Thanks!

Opening seems kinda small, curious how this actually performs.

Well to be quite honest I don't see it making that big of a difference one way or another seeing as though I don't have a pressurized air box. The hose plumbs cool air close to the filter on my spt intake.

I used to swap that fog cover out for the stock fog light surround on track days. I just never liked the way it looked with mismatched covers.
The size of both openings are similar in diameter. The dryer hose inside is a bit wider.

There is what feels like a little bit more life up top but its likely my imagination. Oh well, it was a cheap(free) way to keep the mod bug satisfied and doesn't look too bad to boot.

I really like how this mod looks on the 06-07. Yours looks a lot better with the bezel around it

i did this a year or so ago (alaska living) and in the winter snow would make its way inside the box and it would have a little puddle of water inside the stock air box. i quickly changed that tho.

just a warning when driving in snow or rain.

Thanks for the advice. I've run that hose in the fender for quite some time without any problems. I punched a few small holes in the underside of the hose for drainage. As stated I don't have the stock air box, but rather and SPT sri. I do get quite a bit of rain in the summer, but I could only wish for snow down here.
