    Then stay with the factory one. For the minimal gains you'll get out of a cai at a stage II level.. the factory airbox is worth the piece of mind and ability to be able to run the car in the wet n possibly through some deeper puddles. Get a nice drop in filter that will afford a little more flow if you absolutely have to mod the intake.. but other than that the factory airbox will be the best one to keep water out. They're engineered quite well in that respect. Besides.. your factory airbox IS a cold air intake, look where the snorkus (hehehe I love that word) picks up incoming air.. right between the hood and the grill forward of the radiator. That air is nice n cool.. especially if you're on the move.

    Do I think my performance mods will kill my car? Not in the least. I went nuts with my Evos and never had failures. Stage 2 on a Subaru to me is next to nothing.
    Well the warranty on the tranny, diffs, axles, and any other drivetrain part gets compromised, not just the engine. If you get a tune and blow your tranny, that's going to be an uphill fight. They could even deny coolant issues or a lot of things.

    At the end of the day, it's up to them to PROVE the mod caused the failure. However, they already have lawyers on staff. They can deny it and then it's up to you to fight them, which costs money you'll never get back. It doesn't matter if you're right, this is the wonderful ole USA law system.
