Default WRX AEM Short ram intake

I just got off the phone with one of my dealers and he has the part number of the AEM intake for the WRX, which is due out late next month. Pricing is still a little sketchy, but retail is around $275. I can organize a group buy if there is interest (with the permission of the imprezidents of course). Figure a group buy price of around $210 plus shipping. I have no other real info other than that. If there is interest, please PM me, cause I would like to keep this post along the lines of turbo powertrain and not a group buy. I will open a group buy if I feel there are enough interested parties and after I am granted permission.
Thanks,
Pete

Injen is a cold air intake where air is drawn from the fenderwell and the AEM stays in the engine bay.

The only reason I am leaning more toward the AEM is b/c of the fact that it stays in the engine bay. I know there have been no cases of an Injen intake sucking in water but Murphy's Law is never in my favor. I do know however that Injen is a very respectable company with great products, but still I am a little hesitant.
I'm gonna wait until the AEM comes out and see how it looks.

Another good reason to get an aem I believe all their products are carb legal.

Default AEM, or Injen? hmm

I can understand that the Injen may be better at drawing in cooler air from the lower inside fender well, & may possible may also draw in water. Water isn't good. I have done my own modification to the issue of "cold air", & some "ram air" effect flown' into my Rex, without drawing in water. Though, I am curious of how the AEM is set up.. I have a few thoughts of how to assist my stock air intake, & would like to know what the AEM proposes.. Thanks for any specifics, or any pictures of both the Injen, & AEM set-up.

Question What's the URL?

Hey, what's the URL (web address) for where you found the Injen intake for the WRX? I did a little searching and was unable to locate anything.....

Thanx

Kurt

Staying in the engine bay? HELLO? HOT AIR INTAKE?

The factory air induction is great... sure its a little quiet, but seriously it uses RAM AIR. Geezus ...

Hot air makes little difference in a turbo car. The vast majority of the heating (I've read between 95 and 98%) occurs at the turbo. Since you don't know what kind of pressure loss advantage the AEM has over the Injen, you have no idea if the temp. advantage will counteract the potential pressure differential. Lot's of _heavily_ tuned turbo cars use underhood intakes (supras, skylines, other subarus, etc.).

There are better ways to spend $200+. Like the MAF->Turbo hose...it's TOTAL crap. I bet it probably has five times the impact on performance as the stock airbox.

BPM, and STI. I know that Graham Goode and Hyperflow are working on theirs. Forget the STI, it's over $800...the others are below $300
