It is prone to cracking/breaking including the nipples,it has a very small inner diameter.Any time you free up a restriction before or after the turbo faster spool will result.Same with upgrading the factory TMIC hoses.I'm not going just by Perrin's numbers either.Been tested alot on NASIOC.I use the APS inlet and love it compared to the silicone ones.Comes with a 3"-2.4" adapter for stockish turbos and a 3" for when you step up to the big boys.Takes me 30 min to install/remove.Like mentioned earlier,it's all about moving the PS line!

One of the issues of SubieSport also proved upgrading the inlet hose (with a turbo setup) was effective using a dyno. The connectors on the stock inlet are surprisingly brittle.

Here are pics of my APS turbo inlet. Love it, like others have stated its actually a hard pipe not a silicone one. Its the biggest one on the market so far and is a quality piece. For installation I took off the intake manifold because I had to do my injectors anyway, you can try to squeeze it through but most likely you'll end up scrapping the crap out of it. Good Luck.

I don't know what your mechanical skills are and how patient you are. Changing a intake and installing side skirts is nothing in comparison to installing a turbo inlet, especially the APS one. (Silicone ones you might be able to squeeze through because its bendable) I would have a buddy or two help out and plan the whole day to get it done if your worried. From morning till night. It will be easier to get it on by taking off the intake manifold, some have been able to get it on without removing it, but it seems hard as hell and you would probably scratch it up as I've said.

The SPT is Cobbs design pretty much, just with "SPT" on it instead of "Cobb". Or so I have read from others. Wouldnt really surprise me.
