Research time.
Yeah man no worries, just research. The measurements you took don't take into account the piping differences and airflow in that intake versus the stock intake. MAF sensors on modern turbocharged applications are extremely tricky. It's one of the reasons why SPT stopped offering the intake for late model WRX/STIs. It's the same deal on the Mazdaspeeds that also use MAF sensors. The stock intakes on those cars are horrible, and aftermarket intakes actually give moderate gains... But with direct injection and no tune, the fuel pumps can't keep up. Now on the older SRT-4s with a MAP sensor, you can do an intake all day long with no tune... But it also doesn't net you any more power than stock. Generally, the Subaru stock intake is pretty well engineered, so intakes don't give any gains at stock+ levels (other than sound) but they have to be tuned for.

Stock intake is good for 350+ hp... But you're already at stage 2, and it's just a map swap away for an intake, so why not...?
