Default CAI for MAF Legacy/outback

I've been looking for a CAI for a while now.
Larrygantz looks like he had one.
but I can't find a Cold Air intake for a 1999 legacy outback sus.

Apparently i have to get a 2 peice? Because I have A MAF.
Any help would be great, been looking around at some sites people gave me... but no luck

If you have a MAF, you gotta do some cutting and hacking to get things to work.

This is pretty much the case with any subie that is MAF based, and you want to put an intake on.

Weapon-R, Injen are the only "direct" bolt-on CAIs. The MAF based cars respond very well to the J-tube style intakes, where the MAP based cars respond better to the modded "torque box" style intakes.

Be aware that MAF engines don't like it when the torque chamber goes missing. There is the potential for starvation under big, sudden throttle inputs.

I have had pretty good experiance using my Cobb on my MY99 maybe I will make it to the next auto-x and let you check it out. I have tried a couple intakes and this is the best by far.

Not entirely true.
There are a few companies now that sell MAF adaptors for CAIs. If you are still under warranty DO NOT CUT ANYTHING. If the MAF blows and the pipe is cut they will not replace it! I found out the hard way.

Definately go with a long or two piece intake, there seems to be less turbulance with those. I have a short CAI and I just blew my third MAF yesterday!! This one was the factory recall replacement(much better guys ). Putting my factory intake back on today.

Anyone with a MAP want to buy short CAI real cheap!

was deadly sick yesterday... feeling good enough to turn computer on today.
When I get a chance i'll take a pict of my engine, and circle the area were the MAF is, i'm guessing it's going to be close to how the 2.5rs is... but not exactly sure.

My input:

-Cobb or PDM cut to fit cold air intake.
-Injen cold air intake.

Injen has one on there site that looks like it would work

http://www.injen.com/misc.html

for the 1998 Impreza it looks about the same.
it shoes a picture of the MAF.

It looks like it removes the box just behind the engine.
... is that going to be a problem with the MAF?

Also, anyone know some good places to order from Injen?

http://www.fizzautosports.com/ Great guys to deal with.

The Injen CAI was optimized for use without the black "torque box"
