    lol what? Every single subaru dealership in the united states doesn't have a stock turbo inlet? Thats somewhat hard to believe. If it was a APS inlet I'd maybe believe it but you can still find APS's.

    If you're thinking of going aftermarket later there's no sense in going stock again for now.

    You could always check subarugenuineparts.com's OEM catalogue, cheaper than your dealership most likely.

    Trust me, I'm not happy about it either. It does sound like bs but thats what the dealer told me.

    The stock inlet is a ton harder to install than an aftermarket silicone one or even APS (don't have to remove the intake manifold).

    Check the car part out thread on NASIOC.com. You could find used ones there for cheap. Or like said above... might as well upgrade now if you are planning on doing it anyways.

    That's a little odd. Either a week or two ago the guy next to me had to put a new one on. The drivers go to the jersey wearhouse every day to pick up parts orders. However there are plenty of times where parts we think we should have or can get will be on some back order. We'll wait for it and it'll come two days later.
