Default Cobb Intake Box

Hey

atm im running an Apexi Intake on my 2006 STI and im wanting to get an intake box for it to clean up the engine bay so it looks a bit more factory....i've seen the apexi boxes but they are way overpriced.....im thinking about getting the COBB intake box....will this still work with my intake system and can someone post some pics of the cobb box on 03-07 wrx's....finding it hard to find some pics

cheers

dan

The 'Cobb' air box is designed for the 'Cobb' intake. Do the math. If you want the Cobb box, get the whole SF intake kit and get rid of the Apexi.

Also fill in your profile. At one point I wanted to clean up my bay as well as I have an oversized maf intake, if you want something for it you could always fab one up to custom fit. Other than that, just enjoy looking at it. Hopefully you're tuned for the intake.

Truth.

You should be tuned for whatever intake you're running. Cobb SF and SPT don't need tuned for (even though you really should).

Put the stock box back on to make it look more stock... because it would be stock?

damm your actually so smart!! i wonder why i didnt think of this. they sell the box by itself for a reason mate...obviously with a few tweaks it could be made to work with my application.

im running a custom tune so thats not an issue there...i would go the stock box but i want the intake noise, and thats why im wanting to get a box for the pod so i can still have it "factory looking" while still having the induction noise.

im pretty set on getting the COBB intake box from rally sport direct....the only thing i dont like is how it over hangs the snorkel....



does anyone know why the 02-07 box has this and then 08+ they have cut it in line with the snorkel so it looks flush....

Luckily it took you over a month to respond with your smart ass answer.

Obviously the intake box can be modified, or you can save yourself money and go buy a sheet of metal and make your own.
