    cobb sf Intake?

    I have a 2010 wrx. i'm running a stage 2 tune with a cobb ap and have a tb exhaust. I want to install an intake next and to make things easier i'm gonna get a cobb sf intake so i can tune the car for it with the accessport. I'm just curious if this is a good intake and if anyone has had any problems with it. does it create acceleration lag/ turbo lag or any problems like that? also if anyone has had good benefits from it. thanks

    ok thanks. is the airbox really necessary? its like 100 dollars more. its basically just to keep the intake from the heat right?

    I just got the intake and airbox and love them.. they're pretty sweet for the price and makes the car sound beast.

    i got the air intake and airbox from kronosperformance, the intake sounds amazing , i installed the kit in about 25 minutes since it was my first time doing it had to adjust the snorkel a little bit. when you step on the gas you can hear it sucking air in ( atleast i do since thats the only mod i have ).

    If you buy the Cobb SF intake, you want the airbox as well. If you don't want to buy both the SF/airbox, look into the AEM CAI, which also has a Cobb AP map.

    The AEM is a better intake since it's not oiled and is a cold air and not short ram intake.

    You could also build a custom box like I did. Keeps intake temps about 5 degrees above ambient like the stock box.

    Just messing. We all know that neither is needed at these power levels anyway. Did anyone ever do a MAF (g/s and temp) comparison of the two?

    StageII VFXX cars? An intake wont do much without a custom tune, but are worth it if getting a custom one done

    Well as the world's biggest anti-intake person, I'm very hard to convince they're needed. However, for some reason the 2011 cars seem to respond much better to intakes than earlier models. I found so much information about them making a difference that I actually put one on one of my cars for the first time in almost 15 years...

    I thought you would have had the downpipe installed by now.
