    For the STI, I've gotten feedback with 80% saying 'yes' to it being louder. For the WRX, depending on the turbo, I've gotten feedback with only 50% saying that they notice a difference. For an STI owner, I would recommend doing this mod as something for a relaxing weekend.

    If you decide on doing it, you may or may not hear a difference, but just have fun experimenting.

    If you DO hear a difference, please let me know. I'd like to add you to my statistics, so I can better inform people in the future =)

    Why not just buy a cai or short ram? You could get better perfomance and hear the turbo better correct?

    This is on a GD...which the stock intake is not restrictive. It flows as well as or better than most aftermarket solutions, to a certain point (well after Stage 2, with turbo upgrades, etc.). Removing the intake silencer (snorkus) essentially makes it the same as an SRI. Considering the plumbing of the snorkus anyway, it already was technically more of a CAI than most aftermarket pieces anyway.

    Dunno about you...but FREE-Fiddy sounds more enticing than spending $200-$300+ on an intake that nets you pretty much zero gains.

    CAI or short ram costs $ and require a tune.. which also costs $. It seems as if this method doesn't require a tune, and is free.
