I have the Perrin SRI and boy do you hear the spool now...it sounds like a jet when I spool...it's louder than my exhaust and I have the full Helix Catless...I've always had a BOV so thats always been loud and I counter your cobb whoreness with my perrin whoreness

Its funny like that, those where my two choices, Cobb or Perrin, just happen to get the AP as my first power mod, been hooked ever since, just need the sways from them and I got all the "helpful" mods (even though I want the Cobb shift knob also, lol).

You've peaked my interest then. The silencer delete elbow is a let down in my opinion. The SPT SRI intake on my wrx was a lot louder.

Edit: Does anyone else notice that this topic is OT anymore? It's mostly about how it sounds.

I think the best way to find out the answer to the original question would be for someone to get their hands on a completely stock WRX or STi as well as every type of intake available for it on the market. Then put the car on a dyno in stock form and do several runs and then put every intake on the same car and do several runs with each one on and compare all the numbers. That test would make for some great data if anybody had the time and money to do it.

My buddy made a CAI for his civic with some PVC pipe and a foam, washable filter lol. Cost him 15 bucks and he says he can feel a little gain from it. Not recommending this on a wrx but its an option haha.

lol, It actually turned out really good. It looks professional except for the fact that its PVC. But he also didnt have to worry about the MAF sensor, he drives a 90 civic. It sounds good when he gets on it lol but thats not saying much since its a honda.

Sounds like if you can find it, go with the Cobb SRI and their box. I have one and love it, install was simple and straight forward, not one problem yet.

Looks koo but very simple i think im gona make one.. mount it off the brackets above the boost control solenoid, something along thos lines... i see you left the rest of the stock air intake why is that? im just about to pop my fender off and take the last piece out.


LOL so i just did like a 10lb weight reduction.... there was a HUGEEEE amount of dirt/sand in my fender (to get stock intake out) holy crap i couldn't beleave it i should have taken a picture lol
