Default Intake Cobb?? JCsports?

I am wondering which intake kit is better?? Cobb? JC? or Larry I prefer low end torque and good accelation around 2500~4000bpm. My car is still under warranty,so I'd like to have intake which required less modification.

i dont know much about the Cobb intake, but the ganzflow keeps all of your torque and adds HP...It keeps your stock airbox and panel filter (unless you get an aftermarket filter). And it adds a tube (metal) that goes from the airbox to a hole in the side of the engine bay (fender). And it sounds MEAN at around 4k+ rpms...

I might buy a cobb intake later this year just to see what it does to my preformance around the track, auto-x course and street use versus the ganzflow...I am guessing that it will be the same.

But my Ganzflow intake is keeping me happy and I feel good knowing it was $100 less than the cobb intake .

if you plan to stay N/A and want the most out of your car get the cobb. i did have the ganzflow and i liked it. but im sure there is alot more gains to come from the cobb intake. you get what you pay for when you buy from cobb. and that is NOT putting down Larry's stuff at all. Larry sells a great intake with hundreds of happy owners.

I really can't say much about the JC or Larry's intakes. I guess if you want something that's simple and cheap (as in price not quality) then I would go with Larry's. If you want something that looks good and performs awesome go with the Cobb intake. The sound of the Cobb intake is awesome. You don't lose any low-end torque as far as I can tell. The dealership hasn't said anything about my intake yet.

Lightbulb There's a new intake just around the corner.

It is scheduled for release in mid to late July, has been tested on a 4-wheel dyno, and not only keeps your low end torque but adds to it. On the dyno it showed an improvement of 14.6HP @ 5500rpm and 12.9ft/lbs @ 3750rpm. These results were tested on a 2000 2.5RS with an aftermarket muffler(Magnaflow) and Denso Iridium spark plugs as the only other modifications. The results can be seen at www.WRX World
This is an N/A intake on an N/A car, so don't let where the results are posted fool you. Also if you compare the results closely you will also notice that there is even more of an increase at the 2700rpm range, closer to 14 or 15ft/lbs of torque. At WOT you get an increase in sound too, similar to the sound Larry's intake makes.
Price is expected to be right inline with the rest of the performance intakes on the market, except the Ganzflow, which is in a price range all by itself. Thank you very much,

We are currently working on making a version that fits on the 99' and older cars, and is safe to use with the MAF. Our plan is to test out our 99' design, and make sure that it makes the same amounts of torque and power. We will be releasing pictures as soon as the application for patent comes back as pending. I will keep the club up to date as we progress towards production release. Thank you very much,
