    Any VF+ Subaru will see worthwhile gains from an intake with proper tuning.

    I like it based on experience. It's not as loud compared to short ram like Injen or Cobb.

    Well you were worried about "legal". For the minimal performance gain, it attracts a lot of attention to people who don't know exactly what they are looking at...like your stereotypical beat cop. I'd rather he popped the hood and was underwhelmed and didn't give me a ticket for modifications....or dig any further.

    That coupled with the inherent danger of a CAI in wet weather, steer me away from options like the AEM.
