Ahhh, the eternal question. Which intake is the "best"? Try the search feature on the old technical forum. Or in this one once the stuff is moved. You will find this topic covered extensively. And your conclusion? RalliSpec? Weapon R? Crazy water-sucking ram air? Straight pipe into the wheel well? Who really knows. Unless you put each one on your particular car and run it on an AWD dyno with a fan blowing cool air on the intake, you'll never know for sure. An even then, would you ever REALLY know?

But the short answer is if you get one from RalliSpec, Cobb Tunning, JC Sport or Weapon R they'll all do pretty much the same.

It's late. I'm feeling rhetorical. Please do take a look at the search. There's a grotesque amount of discussion on this topic.

1) TRi Tuning ...Chris is a God, and the SARD filters are the Best! True racing filters ...along with the air resvoir(sp?) to store built up air ...so you won't lose low end ....I hear that TRi is marking another change to their intake once agian to become the clear cut Best intake... Hopefully They'lll need a AT tranny RS tester ...i will be that person I will do that for you Chris!

2) Impreza dot.com / Larry's intake ...Larry makes the best bang for the buck ...TRi intake is just a little better

3)Ralispec- and great intake, but at $300 I don't have bank like that for a intake

4) JC sports- solid intake with dyno information... shipping,customer service, and all parts included are known problems though

5) 8complex's - but that's more of ram air and low end torque is why i love this car

6)Deadbolt and Templar's intakes-solid design and great looks with quality filters

7)iSR Intake - heard nothing but good things and, pam (WRXGirl) has a great track record

Then in 8th is a Weapon R intake w/ BLITZ filter... not the crap it comes with.

But this really is a newbie question, and I bet will get moved

Any more information or pictures of the TRI intake? Checked TRI-Tuning web site and did not find anything besides a drop-in filter.

Faraz, why would a ram air intake lose low end?

edit: When the time comes, I'll probably go with something like Brucelee's.

Basically it's because of losing the airbox. Air gets stored there for when the engine needs it, it's readily available, it doesn't have to suck through any intake piping to get there.
