Default Anyone know if there is a cold air intake for 98 2.5

I've been talking with cobb tuning and they still have trouble finding somone to mass produce the phase 1 motor intake. I'm tried of waiting for cobb tuning, do I have any other options???

Thumbs up

I believe the Ganzflow will work for your car and Larry has them with adapters for the MAF as well IIRC.

I've got one on my '01 RS and another on my '02 OBS. Good results and a great sound.

I have a 2000 RS and all I did was to take the sheild off the hood scoop, and take all the airbox off except the one that goes on the throttle body. I took half of that one off and put a K&N filter in it and put some yellow painted chicken wire around it with black electrical tape and it has the deep throaty intake sound and I have tested it at the drag strip and its is faster than stock. I dont have anything else motor wise on my car.

Total cost 45$, and it has poured the rain the first weekend that I had it done and no water got in the motor or anything, I have had it on for about 2yrs and no problem or check engine lights.

man it amazes me how many posts there are from my00-01 folks telling those with a MAF to use the standard intakes that do not work w/ the MAF...

we cannot use a standard ganzflow or cobb, we can't just modify the airbox, and we most certainly can't put a cone filter on the throttle body...

okay, off my soapbox...

Weapon R also makes ( or made, not sure). It's listed on their site for $190, but you might be able to find one in the classifieds for like 50-100. If you get the Weapon-R, replace the filter with a K&N or something similar (any 3" I.D. filter will fit). The standard filter is crappy foam that lets every thing through.

Not really a CAI is it? I did something similar with my MY99 and none of the 4 intakes I tried really made a difference other than the Cobb the was slightly modified to fit a MY99 (idea by DanzBorin BTW), it would work on a MY98 as well. In fact IMHO it made a bigger impact in performance than the full exhaust.

Yeah, I know the early RS' can be finicky, that's why I waited until the end to get my RS.

My friend had this setup on his '99 and it seemed to work rather well.. I just thought this would be a lower budget alternative, just in case.

Hey Poppa Smurf can you give me more detail about your modified cobb intake, if the gains were good I might look into that! I didn't think those other intakes would do much for my 98 RS, maybe I robb someone and do a WRX swap for some real power
