    Probably. I think Subaru voids the warranty if you put gas in your tank, air in your tires, or miles on the odometer. That's just the way they are. Don't sweat it.

    Get that sucker out of there- if you need help, PM me and I'll walk you through it- you can hear the BOV and it gives a little extra torque off the line.

    The warranty "voiding" has been beaten to death all over the place. You can just up and void a whole warranty, look around on this site with a search, it's even a sticky in the maintenence forum...

    Or you could wait for this to come out: Resonator box elbow replacement

    Take a look there... it's the thread started a while back. Looks like it should be out by mid April.

    Does anyone by chance have a .mp3 or .wav of their car minus silencer? I love the rumble of my Strömung exhaust and wouldn't want to spoil the harmony... ..but more noise is almost always better

    I'm not mad for the air-brake sigh from BOVs - is the stock BOV much more noticable without silencer?

    The car without the silencer and stock BOV is a whisper compared to the aftermarket BOV's.

    I may be new but my stock '03 wagon doesn't push more than 9 PSI and I did not see a drop in pressure after removing the silencer box. Not trying to talk smack but where are you coming from????

    something is wrong with your car! You're only running wastegate pressure (9 psi)! Check your vacuum connections.

    By vacuum connections i mean the line running from the wastegate nipple to the nipple right by the turbo outlet...

    I just did the Intake Silencer Removal, and I love it. Engine sounds deeper at low RPM's and you hear the turbo spooling up. My only 2 questions are, a) Should I keep the Ram Air in, or is it not needed, and b) All that I did was take out the silencer, no plugging or anything, Will that do any harm? Thanks

    Craig,

    Remove the Ram Air Scoop and just plug the fender hole (where the scoop led into) with this part: "Fender Well Blocking Plate" PN# 46059FA000. Five bucks at local Subaru Dealer. Its a stock part for the 99-01 RS.

    Thats what I did. Looks very stock. Keeps the hot engine bay air away from the fender.
