I've heard good things about the Amsoil, other than it takes "3-6 weeks" to get it. I know that the K&N for the MY00 was just released as well.

Anytime you add forced induction you can kill your car faster. I would like the Rimmer supercharger someday for my RS. Go to www.ImprezaRS.com and look for ARG's web site link, as he has a rimmer on his RS. I don't have the URL memorized.

The AMSOIL filter flows as well as K&N while filtering better due to more surface area of the filter element. I used foam air filters on my race bikes, and they work very well.

I have the AMSOIL with my custom cold air intake, and it works great on my MY00. I am actually waiting for one part to come in before I ship Kastle the cold air intake I made for him. This is contageous...

I can make a few intakes in limited quantities if there is interest. After parts and handling materials (box and bubble wrap), I'd make about $10 for my time if I sell for $50 plus shipping. You can see the intake at the web site above, version #2. I am going to start keeping materials around for making a few of these as people ask about them. I have everything I need for 6, except for the neoprene covered silicon tubing - which I order as needed since 6" is $20.

Hey Larry,

I was just wondering what kind of sound you get from your intake. I made you and it seems similar to yours. Mine is really loud at WOT after 4k. Under that it gives a lower rumble than the stock intake. But at high RPMs it kind of sounds like either the pipe is vibrating or the air is resonating in the pipe.

I'm planning on changing it a bit...not sure how yet though...

here's a pic on my intake:
