    except some guy came running out across the parking lot yelling HEY HEY... so all he managed to do was almost break a bolt off of the wing.

    Morning peeps!
    Hokay... so I am thinking about getting the SPT intake w/heatshield... but I am reading around, and alot of people have been saying that intake is making their car slower, unless they got a protune???? Wtf, is this true?

    with my CAI it didnt feel any slower, but boost didnt seem to kick in as hard, but from what ive read and what the guys down at rallysport told me was that for now itll keep power about the same, but when i get an access port andexhaust it will do more thn just sound cool. and as far as short ram intakes go i installed a perrin one on my friends car, it was super easy and i thought i could feel a power gain with that. but im not exactly sure, it was this one though.Perrin Short Ram Intake System, PSP-INT-200, Subaru Impreza WRX Perrin Short Ram Intake System

    Heres my spiel (took it back out of previous edit and put it up here so you would all read it) about intakes.

    1) turbulence in the intake airflow produced by the filter or piping, or a change in intake diameter at the point where the airflow is measured can produce inaccurate airflow readings, so the ecu adjusts sometimes adding too much fuel. In the worst case, the AFR is gonna be Lean, but the ecu wouldnt be able to adjust the air fuel map/timing enough to compensate (thus the feeling of power loss? thats my best guess)

    2) the heatsoak issue... complete and utter crap when you have a semi descent heatshield in place, most people that talk about heatsoak are forgetting one major principle.. when the intake air regardless of its source is compressed it is heated by this process, sounds familar? thats because thats what your turbo is doing and why you see alot of modded cars with S/R as apposed to CAI because compression negates that effects of having ambient temp air sucked in (which is what cold air does btw, its not actually cold its just not engine temp air lol :P).
