    theres lotsa subie and scca clubs your way. lessee....swmscca.org (south west montana sports car club of america)i think gets you the club webbie, i have a friend in bozeman that got me my bug eye. first race is this weekend i believe! as for the CAI...id pass unless your building for over 350hp and a regular at the tuners. mixed reviews about all of them having all kinds of avoidable problems even after being tuned in. stock airbox holds up great after doing the snorkel delete. keeps the dirt (more importantly filter oil) out of the maf and iat sensors and the motor alike. i went for new TIMC hoses instead 'cause mine were SHOT! not something that was holding boost, filtered or not lol.

    bah thats what i get for sleep posting, not reading carefully. the k & n ram air is a keeper if its the full kit but the oil from the filter still causes AIT and MAF sensor to get all nasty. quick cleaning with mas air flow sensor cleaner and a ecm reset you have a new motor again.

    Injen is known to skew the stock MAFv calibration by quite a lot. If you have a WBO2 sensor and are familiar with tuning, this is not a problem. Else, if you are not getting pro-tuned, stay away from Injen.
