    Here are two threads to look at, one here ( http://clubwrx.keystreams.com/forums...&threadid=1088 ) and one at Scoobymods.com ( http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...=&threadid=113 ).

    Hope that helps,

    K&N # 33-2031-2 (listed for Nissan Maxima). I think on K&N's website, they now list a part specifically for the WRX, at least that is what I have heard. Probably not in the parts books yet thats why nobody can find it for you.

    or you can try the ITG Panel filter. It's British made. I have one and it fits perfectly on my WRX.

    about 50 bucks or so.

    I ordered mine through Rally Performance. Basically you email the guy and he'll send you the paypal info/bill and you pay it that way. I got my filter within a week.

    Ok, i removed my intake silencer but now my airbox is just leaning up against an open hole in the fender. Is it supposed to be like that or is the "ram air" scoop supposed to be connected to the airbox somehow? any info would be appreciated. thanks
