+1If you go the Cobb route, you have to also purchase the airbox. Other than that, you're not going to notice much of a difference other than sound, maybe...

+2. This very topic has recently been covered ad nauseam BY YOU here - http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/engine-modifications/134350858-cobb-sf-intake.html, and elsewhere on this forum. No offense, but PLEASE search topics before posting, and never post a duplicate thread.+1
Get the airbox w/cobb sf intake, and when seriously comparing both applications, the cobb is the better route to go. Shorter piping = faster air flow, composite materials = better heat dissipation as opposed to the AEM (aluminum I believe?). And with the airbox, it has an opening which allows airflow from the fender to travel to the filter anyways, so it effectively becomes a 'CAI.' Also, if you ever plan on getting a FMIC, you require a SRI, CAI gets in the way apparently of the piping.
Although, until you putting down 350+ whp, you prob won't notice much of a difference from either intake anyways
You likely won't notice a difference regardless of power output. At some point (because dyno numbers vary, we can't put a cap on it), the stock-sized intake will be a restriction and you'll need to go to something in the 70+mm range.J_Maher_WRX said:Although, until you putting down 350+ whp, you prob won't notice much of a difference from either intake anyways
Eh?... It's a COBB designed product with their own map for it so why would there be any issues? But I agree with you on the AEM in the fender it would get colder air with more benefits...To each their own. Personally I think the AEM is a better product. Some people disagree, but that doesn't mean they're right.
Watch out for MAF issues...
