air intake, drop in
 
well i have seen people reccommend a drop in to use with my standard air box instead of say a hks mega flo cone intake. is this because it could mess up my engine or becasue it doesnt change the power received?

is there a drop in that is suggested to use for an 06 TR? :confused:

i saw a fram at pep boys but is that any better than the stock one?

In general a short ram, or a cold air intake on a WRX will drop the power numbers on the low end and not gain on top end.. That is unless your tuned for it.. However, the stock setup flows actually very well.. Most people suggest the K&N.. I don't know how the Fram would stack up to the K&N...

Check out the Perrin drop-in.

Drop In?
 
What do you guys mean by a drop in. DO you mean like a aftermarket air filter in the stock box or what?

LiL Shoaf 06-01-2006 05:59 AM

Yes.. A "Drop In" filter is a OEM style panel filter that fits exactly as the stock filter does in the stock air box..

I havent seen the fram filter, but, I assmume that its the same as the stock one. good choices would be: K&N, Perrin, or STI.

The STI filter is good but nowhere near worth the $60 price tag. I would go for the K&N or the Perrin.

I have a Perrin foam filter coming monday or tuesday, ill let you guys know if it does anything.

Stacy thanks for the input about the Perrin, i think im going to go with that for now.

Does anyone suggest using another intake tubing or just pop this in and keep the stock parts installed?

9d2TSi 06-03-2006 02:35 AM

Check out ebay for the Perrin, I scored mine for $25 and change plus shipping. !Thumbs Up I have the K&N short ram and I'm taking that off in favor of the stock airbox, if that means anything.

Since my car's mostly stock, I don't need that intake yet.

doesn't a short ram increase the sound of the turbo??

WRXScarlett 06-07-2006 11:32 AM

I received the Perrin yesterday and installed it. Just gotta remember how oiled it was for next time when I clean it. Its running nice and I'm getting a lot more of a spooling soung from my engine, VERY NICE!
