What is the intake silencer mod, how do you do it? Does it just make your stock intake louder... or what?

Yeah, thats about all it does, make your stock intake louder.



I havent seen any dyno graphs with just the silencer mod, but I dont think it would even give you 1 hp. A few people thought that they really tested the mod on a dyno and that it gave them a few hp atw, but it was not a true test because they had a K&N at the same time. Personally I would not want to spend the time to do it, just for a little more noise.

Well, if you do the silencer mod you should definately get a K&N at the same time. I did mine and I enjoy the extra sound. Now of course, I have a bunch more stuff done since then, but I can still hear the improvement in sound eveytime the turbo spools or the BOV releases pressure.



BTW: It's a very easy mod to do. Just make sure you have a long socket extension to remove the airbox.

FYI: ITG filters fit the WRX better than K&N. Supposedly filter and flow better too. About the same price.

I just did this mod this weekend. It does make things a helluva lot louder. I also installed the TCG intake kit which locates a shiny steel velocity stack inside the fender well directing cold air into theair box.



Lots louder and a minimal seat o' the pants difference. I'm happy tho.
