Default Can someone with a Cosmo SRI help me?

I was hoping that someone with a Cosmo SRI could help me out... I love the hybrid intake but I hate how cheap the eBay piping hack job looks/feels. I was hoping someone cold tell me how close the Cosmo SRI comes to the stock air box and if it would be able to be connected using a coupling or if it could be cut to work or if the bends aren't even close enough to work... If someone wants to help me out it would be greatly appreciated... I'd hate to blow the money just to find out it won't work :/

Close to what you wanted... I actually have the Cosmo CAI, and it's divided in 2 pipes. ONE HUGE one that comes all the way from the throttle body all the way to where the stock airbox would be, then a coupler, to the extra downpipe to the actual intake filter. I've heard the SRI is quite short and Idk how far away from the stock box is it. but the picture on the Cosmo Racing website (red subie) is actually mine.

COLD AIR Intake.


Short Raim Intake:


Hope this helps.

For the $$$, you're better off getting two Ebay SRI's and hacking them up. One Cosmo SRI runs about $100 IIRC. The CAI is more. The eBay ones are $30-40. You'll have to modify the Cosmo ones anyways.

Food for thought! If you do have the money, the CAI would be better I suppose. More piping to work with and it appears to almost make it to the box. You may need to cut it in the middle of the longer pipe and reposition the angle.

Yea but I am not sure if you've seen a Cosmo intake... It's a quality piece and the ports for the vacuum tubes are actually the correct size instead of the pencil size openings on the eBay versions. So I rather not go cheap... Thanks for your input!

Cosmo racing is actually a great product, quality, for its parts. Cheaper than other Intakes. Best way to go, idk about the eBay replicas.

Does the OP even need a hybrid intake? He has an 04 and I thought all 04s were MAP-based (i.e. no MAF resonance to worry about).

I have the 2006 2.5 NA and ordered the Cosmo SRI as a base for the hybrid. Not too happy... I wanted blue but they only had silver and blue tuning/couplers. 1st off the blue couplers are not blue. They are purple and dont match the blue tubing. 2nd, the blue tubing is the right size to attach to the SRI pipe but NOT the right size to attach to the subie. Calls to them were met with "It should fit" and "take pictures and send us an e-mail" and "we dont have an adapter"... More "Bolts right on" fun... 3rd (and this is not on them), the angles are tough and it is actually a bit too long by the time you add the needed adapters and coupler. I am STILL trying to find the right combination. I dont want to cut the pipe yet since it has a hump in it at the end for ta solid connection. If you stumble upon it, please let me know. So I am still running it as an SRI. It does feel and sound good - especially at high revs... but at some point to transition to Hybrid... btw asked Cosmo if the CAI was more suited to my applicatioon and they said "No"... IMHO, they are shoving things out the door and thinking "close enough"...

Hope this helps...
Steve :-)

Yea I asked them and they told me it wouldn't work... But I figured there's say that so they wouldn't be liable... I also wanted red but they said all they had was silver I was just going to take mine to get painted crinkle red or do it myself....so just to get this straight... You purchased the CAI version of their intake and you're saying that the angles are too sharp to be able to cut it and add say a coupler? Or you just don't want to cut it and mess up? I wonder how different the SRI version is 0.o it looks like it may be too short.

I wish someone who had the SRI version would just take the cone filter off and throw the stock box back in so I could see the angle and what I'd be working with :/

You Could just buy Universal Piping instead.... I know they sell the piping by itself and you can buy different angles and just measure it up. Cost you about the same for an Ebay replica or two.

Yea, but then I have to figure out how to add the ports for the vacuum lines

You got me there... I'd say just go with the Cosmo CAI or SRI, get a Tune (open source is the best way to go and for the money) and you'll be running great especially if you have a nice catback

Hey man you need to get on this! Have you checked this place out: http://www.siliconeintakes.com/

Would a 30*, 45*, or 60* bent silicone adapter on the intake box make it work?
