Default If I install a Ganzflow, can I ever return intake back to stock?

^^

I just ordered a used Ganzflow from a NASIOC member, and I'm really excited. However, I'm worried that I'd be unable to replace it with the stock intake after I install it if/when the need arises.

Would this be difficult to do? I just want to make sure I'm not hurting my car's resale value.

Not sure about the 02's but as long as you keep your stock intake you can go back anytime you need to on the <01

Course you can...all 2000-up RS's have the same in take piping and everything.

All youll need to do is take off the Gansflow and put on the stock...it will just be the reversal of the Gansflow install.

The only way that you couldn't is if you bought the stage 2, which I doubt you did. That requires cutting apart the airbox. For what you probably bought it only takes like 7 minutes to swap them. I have gone back and forth many times when I have to take my car in for service.

one piece of advice is to stop worrying about resale value if you are gonna mod your car. i love my car and the last thing i worry about is being able to sell it for $200 more a few years down the line. take care of it and mod it tastefully and you should always be able to go back to stock.

Good advice

I've just recently decided to abandon all hopes of getting a WRX. I just won't be able to afford the big-arse loan and payments and all that crap, and I'll just want to mod it more!

So, I'm just going to be happy with the car I have and have fun with it.

I know this is an old thread but I found it searching for gansflow, anyway, why would you worry about getting it back to stock for service?

I have never had a problem with intakes and warrenties.

^if something goes wrong with the engine, they can blame it on the intake and deny your warranty...not worth the risk.

hmmm according to the law they have to prove that the problem was caused by the intake and I don't know of any problem that could be related to an intake cept maybe vapor lock and you would have to totally imerse the intake in water for that.

No problem. I had an intake on mine and then put the stock one back on before I traded in. Didn't sound cool anymore but hey..
