    Looking for the best air intake for my 2009 WRX

    I am new to this forum and am looking for some advise as to what type and brand intake will give me the most gains all around. Sound would be nice but performance comes first.

    If you plan on running the Cobb AP I would reccomend either the Aem cold air, or Cobb short ram.

    As long as you won't be driving in heavy rain, the Aem is superior in my humble opinion. That's what I run, and it's awesome.

    It makes good power, sounds amazing and draws cold air from the bumper. Living in Southern Ca, it doesn't rain much here.
    14 sedan Limited: AEM intake, Tomioka IC hose, Cobb AP V3, Invidia down pipe with 3" cat, custom 3" mandrel bent single exhaust, Aem air fuel gauge,Cobb knob,Perrin Pitch Stop mount, SPT front strut tower brace, K-Sport coilovers@1.5" drop.

    07 Duramax LBZ- 26psi,intake, TBE, Diablosport programmer, Edge Insight with EGT, EGR block off, BD exhaust manifold, PPE fuel valve.

    Stock.

    Honestly, unless you simply want an intake your stock unit is just fine. An intake by itself isn't going to give you huge gains on these cars. Plus, you'd have to tune for it so you're looking at $500+ for an intake + AP/pro-tune.

    Not worth it unless you're going stage 2 as well.

    Im new at this, so this is a good learning experience for me. I have a general understanding of what stage 2 is and I would like to get to that point. Should I not start with an intake then? I definitely don't want to harm any of my systems.

    I have a K&N high air flow filter in now but other than that, everything I have done has been cosmetic.
