New to the turbo world and just got my first wrx! (04')

People are telling me to not do the Cold Air, or short ram, they told me keep the stock stuff and either take out the snorkel, or buy a drop in filter. He also mentioned cutting the bottom of the air box and it essentially makes the same as a short ram. Wondering who has done what and had any luck with it.

Also have a cat back, tgv delete, catless uppipe, tuned to stage 2 (just need the downpipe). Wondering if the airbox thing is worth a shot.. I guess there was some tutorial on how to do it yourself.

Shouldn't be tuned to stage 2 without the downpipe. Should have a custom tune with the mods you currently listed. Better to just stick with the stock intake. It's plenty good enough at your power level.

OK buy Nates beans



do NOTHING....

nothing but change the oil to something OTHER than 5w30 oil....this will help keep it from blowing up....many use 0w40 or 5w40

this is NOT a joke

then...start doing and buying

and you do not want ANY 'short ram' style intake...sucking hot air from under the hood is a BAD idea
