    2003 WRX Turbo Inlet Hose

    Looking to replace my turbo inlet hose but not really sure if the after market once are the same as the OEM that's currently in my car. I've been shopping around for a turbo inlet hose for my car but notice some difference, ie; size and the locations and number of small tube on the side.

    I really don't want to loosen the manifold so I don't need to replace the gaskets. I'm looking for an inlet hose small enough to squeeze to where it should be.

    are the hoses that connects to the side a regular vacuum hoses or are they specialize for the specific location.


    I'm looking at this inlet hose Godspeed 02-03-04 Subaru Wrx Sti Ej20 Ej25 Turbo Intake Inlet Silicone Red Color : Amazon.com : Automotive.

    another concern is my cars turbo. I have a VF39, will the end of this inlet hose be able to fit properly?

    Godspeed is eBay garbage...

    Perrin makes a 2.4" inlet that is worth installing.

    haha, thats a good thing to know.

    now you mentioned the 2.4" inlet, will that diameter fit on the VF39? I'm not really familiar with turbo specs and diagram. And thanks for letting me know about GodSpeed.

    Additionally, I'm concern about the AEM inlet hose's nipples, as there could be more or less than the OEM. are you familiar of how many nipples are there in the OEM inlet hose?

    Unless otherwise specified, Subaru turbos have a 2.4" compressor inlet. The VFXX turbos all have a 2.4" inlet.

    I took it off because my new turbo has a 4" inlet and doesn't have to jam under the intake manifold. Plus, being speed density I don't even necessarily need an intake.

    Asking $160, shipped.
