Yes it does. You will also notice quicker throttle response, at least I did.

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

Does anyone suggest using another intake tubing or just pop this in and keep the stock parts installed?
Ditch the stock resonator/snorkus and stick one of these in.You will get alittle more sound and some faster spool up with the high flow filter in.


They sell them at most Autozones for $15.Reset your ECU after you put one in.

My opinion:

Intake mods on our cars are all for two things:

1) Sound - "Luke, I am your father" *breathe in* *breathe out*
2) Air flow - If you're not getting tuned for it, it's all placebo effect. It makes you think your turbo spools faster, but in reality it does very little (maybe 50 RPMs faster).

Recommendation: Go ahead and buy the aftermarket drop-in filter if you wish (re-usability factor).

Not Recommended: Don't buy anything special for the silencer/snorkus (all just bling bling). Save your money for premium gas.

To reset your ECU pull your Negative Battery Cable, then press the brake peddle for 15 seconds or so to drain all the (lingering voltage) out of the system.. Reconnect your Negative battery terminal and your done.. Well, until you notice your clock and radio presets are all messed up..

It doesn't hurt to flash out the memory of the ECU.. The ECU kind of gets used to a setup so once you change that setup it's nice to clear the ECU so it starts all over again..

Right because that 180 bend with the bong attached to it flows oh so well.I really doubt if you took that thing off you would see a pressure drop infront of the turbo.Or the fact that everybody knows velocity stacks don't work.Thats why none of the intake manufacturers use them.Not like Subaru would put one in the stock airbox or anythingOh and removing the cat from the up-pipe,placebo effect.Removing restrictions does nothing,its all in your head.And as far as the tuning,thats the beauty of MAF based systems.They compensate for an increase of volumetric efficency with out the need of tuning (to a point) unlike MAP based systems.

I reset my ECU after adding any part really. Just a precautionary measure to make sure the car knows what it is doing. Then it can recognize that something has changed and compensate for it.

Also sense we are talking about the 2.5L here,the stock airbox is good for roughly 350hp (crank,not wheel) so basicly an STi with a TBE and Cobb stage 2 map is basicly maxing out the stock airbox.The is a reason almost every STi out there is using an intake.And the 2.5L wrx's could easily max out the stock airbox with a slight turbo upgrade.A 2.0L with a big 16g is getting close to maxing out the stock box.
