You can buy brand new subaru painted sideskirts for 225 from a dealer so it won't cost more then that :)
Do they have a part number for them. Everytime I call I get the run around.

who is spreading the rumors about the intake effecting performance? I've had mine off for about a month and my car has never ran better.

I heard that removing the intake silencer can screw up the turbos performance
getting some brands of intake will damage the performance of your car by allowing too much air in, yes. But removing the snorkel from your current stock set up won't hurt a fly. Unless it get sucked into the intake. If you've ever seen the snorkel you'll understand why this piece looks so damn useless. As for your mods, I basically have had the same set up for about a year minus the cobb 2 (but I do have cat-back exhaust) and it's worked great.

To your other question, it is necessary to get a realignment after suspension work. Be sure to put the wheels on at the same time as your springs so that way you will have perfect alignment, because a lot of people recommend, again not necessary, to get a realignment after getting bigger rims. Also ask around to see if you can fit 235s on your car. I had no trouble with 225s and rubbing so try to get a little bigger if you'd like.
