Turbo inlet pipe

I am contemplating buying a perrin turbo inlet pipe for my 09 wrx but am afraid of a CEL. perrin says no CEL will come on and tune not necessary. Anybody done this mod? If so i hear its good just want to buy another part without tuning yet

You will be fine without a tune.... You eventually get one, right?

Pointless if not IMHO

Oh BTW.... Get a set of phenolic spacers if you are going to take the IM off... might as well if yur in there....

Nevermind, you don't even need to take the IM off... nice

No tune needed and there is no associated CEL. I wouldn't worry at this point. The reason most people get this part is because their stock inlet broke, either due to age to mishandling during removal (specifically when doing turbo upgrades). It's more an aesthetic mod, and for higher mileage cars a reliability one, than a performance part.

Hopefully its easier to get them out a 09 than a 02. Man mine was a PITA to get out. I ended up just breaking the inlet in pieces to get it out. Perrin inlet went in easy though.
Good luck man.

The inlet is a different beast.

If you take your time it's only 1 out of 5 beers.... If you have a "high blood pressure issue" it'll take longer hahahaha.

I replaced the IM with a PnPnC'd one and phenolics with an inlet and it took 4EVAR.

The inlet I had was trash (BPM) had to make a concoction to make the PCV work correctly... Irritating to say the least.

If it were an APS or similar, I'd say wait till you get the other goodies together....

Silicon will tuck in (95%) of the time.

Thats what im thinking. While i install DP , up pipe and test pipe ill just rip it out then. Ill cant wait to get tuned. Just need a good tuner been looking forever just cant trust anyone yet. Been looking for about 8 months now and no real legit ones. Thinking about learning to tune my own car so if it blows i only can blame myself lol. But id prefer a professional

I put one on my 11 with a tq. performance stg. 2 tune and it thru no codes, everything seems to be in check. I've run data logs, keep in eye on boost and AFR's and nothing is out of the norm so far
