    Short throw is the first thing I did to my past 2 cars. It makes shifting more pleasurable, and as far as install goes. It is remarkably easy to do, the shifter part takes about 30-40 mins, but bushings will take a little longer because you have to get under the car. Still not bad though, and I know my TWM short throw came with step by step instructions that made it super easy.

    Go open source, it is cheaper and I have heard that it is just better all around.

    CBE is just a noise maker, go quieter if at all. I like the SPT just because it sounds stockish but "sexier"

    Intake or DP will require a tune, so if you get one of those it has to be tuned.

    I've done that. You can go back, edit your post and at that time delete it altogether. Then there's only the first one left.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    As i've said many times... I use TP's maps, and Eric has A LOT of experience in tuning Subarus, so I asked him which intake he recommended and he told me flat out the AEM. The filter is completely outside of the engine bay and so the air stays constantly colder. People who have the cobb or some other SRI will try to scare you with that hydrolock BS, but the truth is, it only happens to morons who drive through water that's a foot or more deep. You shouldn't be doing that anyway. The SRI is mostly a waste of money IMO. The Cobb's box does allow for cooler air though, so that does help a little more than one without an air box. Also the size of the filter on the AEM is MUCH larger than the Cobb or pretty much any SRI which means more air will get pulled in. With the DP, I was told at the stage 2 TP map by Eric the AEM resulted in a 3-5% increase in power. He recommended it, I bought it... it was also MUCH cheaper.

    Could not agree more. I'm also running TP Stage 2 with AEM intake. It's cheap, high quality, has a HUGE, very breathable filter and I don't plan on taking a swim any time soon so hydro lock is also not an issue. It also looks the best in my opinion; love that wrinkle red goodness.

    Plus I love AEM. I accidentally screwed up my filter on the initial install and AEM just sent me a new one at no cost.
