since you guys were on the intake topic, i thought i would tell you guys.
i went to the strip 2 times, first time me vs. 05 wrx with turboback, cold air, ecutek(i think it was, he thinks they say they installed but really didnt, never found out if he got his money back).

anyways, he ran 15.5 all night, finally hitting a 14.9 on his last run. i ran with just turboback, k&n drop in, helix uppipe and ran 14.4 all night.

same story on a 04 rex with cold air intake, spt exhaust, running 15.3+, a 02 rex with 17 psi (or 16 cant remember) with catback best was a 14.4. he had a stock intake just like me......
just thought i would share that with you guys, peace

(o yea, the elevation calculator says 14.4 = 13.89 if we were at sea level.)

ps. sti with fmic ran 14.4 all night. and evo.... lol.... evo with exhaust(15.0, diped into the 14's), this guy needs to get himself a honda and learn how to drive. i was spankin him all night as well. our cars own if u can get them off the line.... without breaking anything !Laugh!

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


Do you know the part # for this?

Unfortunatly all of this means nothing because the drivers are a big variable here.

Cel

Hey guys, I saw you started discussing the AI. I just placed a Fujita CAI in mine and reset the sensor. I didn't put my foot on the brake but it did reset it. For some reason though, after a couple hours or so, the CEL comes back on again. So, I reset it again. Then it comes back on "again" Kinda frustrating actually. Any ideas? Pershiate it

The intake is causing the CEL.Have you tried getting it scanned to find out what code it is?Have you read this?The CAI arguement explained...

Wink Anyone tried a Blitz Drop in?

...they're supposedly made of special cotton and need no oil...i've been told many times over oiled filters contaminate the MAF sensor over time.

If you clean the oiled ones properly there is no trouble with them.The Blitz ,one according to their website,is not a washable filter.I remeber you talking about getting a turbo upgrade and tune.I would go ahead and get an intake like the K&N since you have a 2.5 you will be out flowing the stock airbox pretty easilly.If you are still worried about oil switch the K&N filter out on the intake with the AEM dryflow filter.

Alot of the time when people have problems with washable/reuseable filters, it's because they put too much oil back on it. I can't say that it's always like that, but alot of the time it is. My Perrin was soaked with oil when I bought it. I had to wipe alot of it off before installing it. I opened it and was like...


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

Thanks DD for waking me up..as time goes by more and more mods show up in the 'install pile' so be it:K&N or comparable set-up. The oil issue is mute for sure STAC' if you stay away from overoiling.

I went with a K&N on my car. I noticed no difference in performance. Maybe just a slightly better throttle response.

You won't see a gain untill you get to the point where the stock filter was becoming a restriction.I its all about how much air you are moving.
