Have a Nice Day? 2.2 Intake?

I know there's probably a thread out there for this somewhere ... but I'm getting frustrated digging through everything and not finding what I'm looking for. I'm looking to get an aftermarket intake for my 97 Impreza 2.2 L, but nothing seems to be for my engine. Which other engines could I get and intake for that would fit mine as well? Also, are there any great deals or brands that I should look into? Sorry to anger anyone for being impatient ... I really have loooked .. and looked .. and looked.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You can make a 2.5RS aftermarket intake fit. It would be fairly simple. If you want to do it a cheap way, go to EBAY and pick up a cheap short ram "no name brand" intake. Or if you want quality, and stay smog legal, I would go with an Injen Technologies Cold air intake for about $260.

Nope. His car is MAF... those intakes are not compatable.

What I found is a nice MAF intake solution is this: Rip out everything in the stock intake but the airbox and MAF sensor. (Snorcus, resonators, etc...)

Drop in a K&N panel filter, then use some 1st gen Legacy intake tubing to go from the throttle body to the MAF sensor - its 3" and straight.

Know of anyplace I can get the tubing you're talking about? I'd really rather just buy the intake and be able to slap it on ... do they even make short rams with MAFs orrrr ... no?

Thanks for the idea, if you could give me some detailed instructions, I'll look into it

You could buy a Rallispec intake for a 98-99 RS . . . from me even. PM me if you're interested.

Im pretty sure the 97 model has a extra thick tube connected right after the MAF sensor that ure intake wont fit.

The intake replaces the tube. The MAF bolts onto a MAF adaptor. I'll double check on my wife's OBS later. The bolt holes will definitely line up because the airboxes are interchangeable, I used the stock airbox from my 99 on her 96 for a few weeks. The only visible difference is that the MAF electrical connectors are different.

I can... I wrote a big thing up once. The piping is easy to get at any junkyard, and the best part is all your vac lines mate up.

I said you can "MAKE IT FIT". I didn't say it will be a direct fit. With a dremel, all you have to do it cut off about 4 inches of the intake for the MAF sensor to fit.

Sorry if this is a hijack....but i am also looking for an intake... I just bought my 98 2.2L yesterday...and now i'm looking under the hood. I see all these tubes that jut out, they look like large "test tubes" and 2 airboxes.... are there two filters? also, is there a silencer in the fender like on the late model subs? Any info on the 2.2 stock intake would be much appreciated... Thanks and sorry for the hijak

It is a hijack, but whatever. There are two boxes, probably only one of them has a filter in it. The test tube things are used to increase the volume of filtered air available to the engine. This helps low end torque. If you have a silencer, you will likely have an intake pickup right behind the passenger side headlight. Duct work will lead into the fender just in front of the airbox.

It will run like poo, though, and blow MAF sensors. Trust me, I've had three intakes on my car.

I took the intake pipe between the MAF and TB out of a MY93 and put it in replace of my MY99. works great and has better flow. Vaccum lines seem to fall a little short i.e. drive side is 2 inches short. works great and sounds like an aftermarket pipe but looks stock!

Before I bought the intake, I removed the intake silencer in the fender, and used a K&N panel filter in the airbox. Pretty good gains. In fact I'm using that setup in my wife's '96 OBS.

pull off the wheel, take off the fender lining (that black junk under the fender) and you'll see a funny shaped tube-box. This is what you take off. You may need to take off the airbox to get to one of the screws, im not sure. That's easy, there's just 2 screws at the base of the box.

The legacy 3" piece is easy to obtain at any pick and pull salvage yard. it goes from the maf to the throttle plate.
