To those of you with the 2.5l wrx motor with the OEM Airbox; does anyone know what the little tube sticking out of the box into the passenger wheel well is? The silencer and snorkel for my car were missing when I got it , I recently pulled off my fender liners and saw it next to the big hole meant for the silencer. Just curious if that will be an issue in the rain.

As long as your fenders liners are put back in it shouldn't be a problem. I have the Cobb intake and removed all of the tubes and snorkus and have no problems with water or debris. If your don't plan to put your fender liner back on there might be some problems.

no...no they don't

and the op needs to put the fender liners back in

there have been many who have deeply regretted taking them out.....water and road debris and the wiring harnesses don't make for good times down the road

To everyone's concern about the water vs harness issue, I've already put snake tubing over the snake tubing from the factory and double wrapped them with electrical tape as much as I can , I'm pretty sure it will hold up.

I figured out what the little tube is for : absolutely nothing. My initial thought was that it might be a breather for the intake but I opened up the box and looked under the filter, the tube doesn't even go into the airbox, it's just there to hold the box in place.
