If you want a loud powerful turbo check out the EJ5-40T ....it is a quick spool noisy bastard
what is that thin? yo big joe, this is bigjoe from chicago. i have an 03 that i bought 2 months ago. it "had" an aem cai on the car when i got it. i did a little research on this particular cai and got nothing but bad reviews. yeah my turbo was louder but my car kept detonating. you know the pop pop pop when i tried to get on it sometimes. so i got a used stock box, dropped a k&n in it and so far so good.

Go the bookstore and read the section near the back in SubieSport about installs on a silver wagon. I skimmed over it, but it has dyno results of both the inlet and crank pulley by Perrin. I got confused whether or not it gained any hp, but i didn't have time to go back and read it all.

Intake tube with I.C. hoses and silencer delete=faster spoolup.I also ported/polished my I.C. elbow inlets for the hell of it.They are a bit meaty.

Exactly, it's a magazine. I mean, I guess you could buy it if you wanted to.
