Didn't notice any difference with a K&N filter.

K&N filter was my first mod. Didn't really notice performance gains. Did hear the turbo spool more loudly.

i agree

i have the k and n panel filter and didnt notice any gains a hp or two is hard to feel without dynoing the car so if there was a small gain it is hard to feel when driving. i also did the silencer mod but i left the ram air portion and the elbow part of the snorkus/silencer. I hack sawed the silencer just below the elbow so in theory i should get air from the ram airl plastic stock peice and from the fender. I luv the sound it makes.

i just get any decent drop in filter

I have read so many places that putting a cai or short ram intake in our cars doesnt help and some times hurts. The maf sensor gets tricked when changing it. Its real sensitive to the oem design many have tried different combonations. The basic consensus is to remove the silencer and put in a good panel filter but like mention before watch the oiling.

ps wrxout let me know how the tiptronic you put into the car works.
