Talking hey larry! N/A power

hey man.. I just ran a 15.4 @86.8 MPH I couldn't get that rubber plunger thing tp stay in the fender so I just used some duct tape. Pulley.. exhaust... 14.9 cmon 14's. BUY HIS INTAKE. 3rd and 4th pull awesome now (more air in fender at higher speeds) no wonder he got that 6-8 MPH gain at top end.. way to go .. any comments.. 15.4 with just that intake makes me soooo happy. My fiancee' is happy too... I"m just a freak. and for the "tech" question.. so I don't get booted or something . what is the basis for the fuel delivery of the tec-II vs. the haltec???

thanks.. sorry, I had no idea where to post this

That's cool!

I'd love to see what you can do with an exhaust and pulley Too bad I live at 6,000 feet or I woulda gone to the track too. A stock RS up here does an 18 sec qtr mile...

i too was wondering about my98 intakes. when are they going to be available? what's holding them up? will the intakes work with a k&n filter, or is it designed with the amsoil filter in mind? thanks.

The hold up is that we can't find a silly MY97-99 with a stock intake to test fit it on, so that we can then make the MAF to chasis bracket(s)

We've had the finished intake sitting in the shop for two weeks now, and are about ready to ship one out to a customer and have him develop the bracket, but we would feel better about doing it ourselves.

I am trying to talk a local guy here in town into letting us put his stock intake on and trying our intake, on Monday.

Sorry for the delays...

Larry www.ImprezaRS.com

PS: The cold air intake for MY98 uses a shielded cone air filter with 3" rubber cold air hose placed into the inner fender, basically making the filter an "inline" washable filter. The tubing from the the air plenum to MAF will stay stock with Stage I, and be replaced with aluminum tubing from the plenum to MAF in stage II.

Hehehe... good job, but I think I'll be the first one to get into 14's. I'm gonna run my car next week and I'm 95% sure that I'll run at least high 14's and maybe mid 14's. I'll post my runs afterwards.

So you'll be keeping the stock plenum and have tubing going through to the inner fender? Would it be more beneficial to replace the stock plenum altogether?

Larry et. all, I'll be your guinea pig. Can't wait to see how it does. I've played around with mine quite a bit now and find that I must keep the stock air chamber attached to the throttle body for off the line punch. But using an intake like JC's gives you that mid to upper end oomph. I am almost betting that Trey's will use some sort of chamber on the throttle body for low end response.

Shawn, That would be a safe bet.

As for you being the Guniea Pig, I'll know more about how it goes with our current candidate Monday. Probably will have to take you up on the offer! What days and times are you available?

Spschultz,

We tested it and designed the parts on a 98 auto last week. It worked really well, and should be shipping within a week!

Just a pre-warning - don't seal the tube into the fenderwell. I did this with one of my intakes and it didn't have enough airflow for the high-end and it bogged.

I see I'm going to have to bring my car to the track and check my times one of these days...

Hey Larry, I've got a MY99 and I might be interested in getting your intake. I'm only an hour or so away, so maybe we could work something out...let me know...(turbo kits are getting more expensive, might have to wait a while longer)

The cold air kit for the 97-99 MAF based Imprezas requires a hole in the inner fender to run the cold air hose into. So, I don't see it working on a Legacy without cuttng sheet metal somewhere. Plus, the legacy would need something more like the MY0 impreza intake, not this one.

My suppplier confirms that the MAF adapters and brackets will be done by the end of the week, and then we can start taking orders from you all. It only takes me two days to get the shielded air filters/cold air hose once we get your billing info. They retain ALL of the low end power and pull much stronger to redline than stock.

My supplier/billing guy is going to SEMA, and we should be able to use one of the other guys in his shop to get them out till he is back.

Larry,

Are these going to cost the same as the kits you have for the 00 and 01s?

Hey Larry, as one of, I'm sure, many Legacy folks interested in a bit more N/A power, another question. Since the Leg uses essentially the same snorkel/silencer intake set-up (into and out of inner fender) and MAF set-up for 98 (in my GT), as well as the same 2.5 engine, why wouldn't the new intake apply to our cars, per your previous reply?????

Talking

While I was thinking about it and this post was up-

First off, let me say that I am not a paid endorser (good idea though, if I do say myself) But Larry's intake just plain kicks ass. I've had it on my car since August and it really really helps especially since I added the Stromung. Above 60MPH in 5th gear, just step on it and your QUICKLY doing 70, 75, 80, 85 oh crap I better slow down! VTEC's watch out, now the RS can beat you up top as well as kick your butt at the line! This gives the RS top end now to go with bottom end, which by the way YOU WILL NOT LOSE with his intake, unlike others. Just gains everywhere especially on higher gears. The sound is just right, it looks nice and works great. Dyno charts- I don't need no stinkin' dyno charts, this thing adds ALOT, enough for you to definetly notice. Email me with questions.

JJ
I do not endorse street racing, just making a point.

--BTW Larry, I cannot get that rubber thing to work. I've tried several times. Would you please email me?

Hey Larry,
I was thinking about getting your intake. As you know, because I've been talking to you a lot, I have the JC Sports intake. I'd be willing to do a side-by-side comparison for you so you can post on your site or somethin. But I definately want to try your intake and see what it can do.

I'll talk to you later about putting in my order.

Thanks,
Tom Richardson, Jr.

JJ, Thanks for the feedback! I'll email you the new instructions to get the rubber thing in there!

DaveK, the price for MY97-99 is $179.95 shipped since they are much more expensive to make.

nuburu2, I was thinking your were talking about the MY00/01 intake. I suppose this would work if you are sure about the air plenum at the back of the engine being the same, and the holes in the fender for the silencer being the same. You do have to remove the silencer inside the inner fender.

tomricharson, bring it on, I'll sell you one, and you can brag on how much better you like it!

Thanks!

Spunky,

Do you mind posting your full timeslip with all the information on it? I would just like to see this for comparison purposes to other people who'll get the intake or who've have gotten the intake already. It's not that I don't believe you or anything. It's just that for example if another person runs a 15.8 but their 60ft time is .4 - .6 worse than yours, they won't know that from just knowing your 1/4 mile time. They may get the same or equivalent trap speed and be confused and think your car has gobs more power than theirs when that wouldn't be the case. Thanks!
