Short ram WTF?

Why the hell would you waste $100 to $200 on a short ram air intake when there is virtually no power gain from it? So it looks REALLY sweet when you show your buddies your engine!Laugh!

When you reach the point in your car's modification path that you start to outflow the stock airbox. Basically, when you upgrade you turbo and install a fmic. The stock airbox will become history.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

Most new WRX owners do not realize that a intake with not net you much/if any HP. Most other cars, it will. As I am sure you know most common mods are intake & exhaust, it works on most cars, but intake for lightly modded wrx = no good.
