Well good news
My buddy work in the r&d department for k&n air filters and they will be taking my car in next week for a intake kit for the impreza sport.

It will take a couple months but it will be a legit intake for this car.

I will update with more info as I go threw the process.
I bet it fits the non sport models as well

Isn't an intake on a N/A car pretty much a waste of money? For what, 1 extra hp and better sound?

K&n update

Dropped it off today instead of next week
They gave me a rental
And they will be dynoing the stock car
And fabing up and tons of r&d for the intake


They will have the car for about a week and the intake will come in in about a month or so.either way this is a huge step for are cars

I would go into detail but I really don't feel like it.

If you don't like the intake you don't need to buy it.

I think its great that they even consider are cars for a intake

I am sure there is horsepower guys in all of us and if you want to make a extra 1hp so be it. Its a car and we all joined this forum to learn and mess with are cars.

This will be for the sedan and XV.
I will need to get another sedan owner and XV guy for a test fit.
And you will get a free intake aswell.
But don't need then till 2 months or so.

The K&N intake sounds interesting but it's going to be pricey like all their other intakes but I still want it.

I wasn't criticizing you, more of just a cost/benefit question.

I would consider it if it didnt cost a fortune. Still interesting even if I dont get it.

They gave you a rental for free? Win win for you. lol

Mjsub has been talking about these lowering springs. The more pictures you take and install details Mjsub, the better. Very curious to hear about fitment and handling opinions afterwards!
Thanks in advance.

Springs, pretty much the only ones for the new Impreza. I wish it was a little more of a drop than 1". Maybe 1.5 - 1.7 but just want something different than stock. I will be right behind him with lowering mine.
