I know this post was from awhile ago. Using the RadarMount power cord, were the wires long enough to reach the map lighting or did you need to extending them? Looking at the wires on their site it looks to be too short.

They are short and having a longer wire would make the install easier, but I preferred them shorter. Less sack to hide and have it a cleaner install. It reaches!

How are you liking the new Cobb Redline intake ? It looks gorgeous, and I have to agree with your YT video that the more "subdued and mature" sound is a nice change from the standard Cobb intake. I was really hoping they would release the same intake for the GR chassis. It does not look like it would require a ton of modification to fit a GR, but who knows. My only concern with that intake (and the alt cover for that matter) is all of the heat cycling the carbon fiber will be subjected to. I really hope that Cobb did a proper amount of R&D to use the best resin/clear they could to prevent any fading, as they claim in the product description.

Absolutely love it. The IATís are crazy and worth it alone. Yes Cobb actually used a much higher quality clear to resist against fade and yellowing. This is actually mentioned directly from Cobb in their release video.

I know they are making one for the FA. Not sure about the GR, but Iím sure there would be a big market for it if they did.

The IAT's are the only complaint I have with the Cobb SF + box. I modded the fake plastic mesh of my passenger side foglight surround to make it into a more functional air intake towards the cone side of the intake. Lowered temps by 5-10f depending on vehicle speed. The lower IAT is what has me the most interested in this intake (coming from an OCD PC building world where lower temps are everything lol). The bling CF is also a nice bonus though haha.

The lower IAT's is worth it alone. I am constantly surprised how cool my car stays just with this intake. I very rarely get over 100 degrees, even on 90+ humid days. At a stand still or red line, they will creep up into 120's or so, but driving, it goes right back down to 90's. It's very impressive. I am highly anticipating the cooler weather to see how much quicker the car feels.



Yes, the carbon was just a huge plus for me. Really makes the engine bay look more more premium and quality than the stock plastic airbox. I can't recommend it enough.

Wow. Itís been quite some time since Iíve posted in here. Main reason is I have slowly transitioned to video format through YouTube. I am able to talk and walk you through my reviews and installs in a bit more depth rather than a few pictures. If you are interested in following the journey, be sure to check the channel out!

I post often on Instagram as well @chrisvuono

Very nice. Your YT channel is one of the few that I check on a weekly basis hahaha. BTW - I like your trim pieces. Might do the same for mine since I do not like the glossy look from stock.

I appreciate that! Always nice to hear the psotive feedback.

Hit Jason up. I couldn't recommend his work enough. I've had him do a few pieces on my old WRX and now the STI. I get perfect results every time.

Much appreciated! It has been a long 4 years of ownership to get to this point, but I wouldn't have any other way. Very please with the current phase and how the car is sitting.

Refreshed the brakes with some DBA T3 4000 Rotors and Hawk Street 5.0 Pads. Check out the video for the install!
