Check out my homemade sub box that fits right in that spot, fiberglass enclosure covered in black vinyl where i'm supposed to put my amp...havent done that yet.

Snorcusectomy
Brand new STOCK (unfortunately, but its like BUTTER!) clutch

Pioneer head unit
Pioneer 6.5" speakers (225w max)
Subaru tweeter kit
2 12" subs (JLw4-4, Rockwood)

Future plans:

Custom turbo kit this spring after i finish getting all the parts:
(wrx turbo, e-manage, subachad pipes, borla exhaust, wrx or nicer TMIC, borla 2.5" catback, custom midpipe, etc.)
replacement suspension (worn out)
paint black door handles and body side molding to match paint scheme like on limiteds.

Seriously, nice car, now go get it dirty!

I like to go get it dirty, but unfortunately playing around offroad has left me with some kidna shot shocks and maybe springs and my snow tires wear down real fast. Also, the new clutch means I'm trying to baby it as much as i can. Thanx!

Hey,

How much of an improvement did you notice with the Snorkesektomy thingy??? I have a 98 Outback and am considering this.

Like kinda close to nothing...seriously not even kidding. I removed that and opened up the hole as they say to do on SCOOBYMODS.com. It is worth it definitely. It gives it more of a ricer feel, and my friends say it made my car sound like an sti...not too true but hey its a positive compliment.

If you are considering this, I say do it. Its not even that much louder, at partial throttle, but at WOT, that baby screams all the way to redline.

Its basically a matter of u wanting it to be louder or stock. IMHO, I think its awesome, just wish I had the turbo setup on there...I'll wait til May when school ends and I get some nice weather.

But there is a SLIGHT improvement that you can barely notice. Coupled with an exhaust, it would make the car sound mean as hell.

Doh, that doesn't explain how to remove the silencer. Anyone?

EDIT: Google had it cached.
I think this is spam, I hope I don't get in touble Mods, delete please.

EDIT EDIT:
I remember seeing a write up somewhere that didn't involve cutting the factory snorkus, but instead using white piping or something. Can somebody help me??

I too saw that sometime. They used some pvc piping and elbows to run a pipe from the air box to the front of the car. This will COMPLETELY remove the entire snorcus assembly out of the car. It will really make your subaru sound awesome.

Its really not that hard. Just a few bolts... Just go over to your car when you get a little bit of free time and BAM. You just got yourself a free cold air intake.

So I just get some piping that is the same size as the hole coming out of the air box, and put the opening of the piping in the fender???

EDIT: Spelling, it's the middle of the night, can't sleep or type....going to bed.
