    identify part please

    This is my first Subaru. Its an 06 WRX with SPT intake, Invidia down pipe, SPT exhaust.

    Anyway I have some sort of air leak. When I accelerate its loud sounding like intake sound kinda but much louder and constant till I let off gas.

    I checked out my mounts. There is a hose coming off the turbo going left and under to the intercooler. The side closest to the turbo has a clamp hokding it on. The other side right before the intercooler and before it goes under the intrrcooler it is electrical taped and I think its leaking air here.

    I circled the piece in red.

    Thanks for help and let me know whst I need to replace

    Correct. But I'd suggest a new silicone y tube instead of the OEM one(OEM is a pain in the ass to reinstall).

    Electrical tape is NOT the recommended way to seal the intake on a car.....

    Definitely get a silicone Y pipe and a new hose clamp to replace the electrical tape.
