Best intake for your car: The one it already has.

The link in SD_GR's post explains why an intake is not just ineffective, it can actually damage your engine, especially on the older WRXs. If you want more induction and turbo noise, you can do the Intake Silencer Delete Mod, which costs the great low price of $free.99, and only takes a few minutes.

Skip it entirely. You have a great intake from Subaru.

I'd not bother.

Ah yep. Still have the OEM on my WRX despite all I've done to it. It really is a well designed cold air intake.

PITA to get it closed properly, but that is the only thing you have to do to it.

Yeah, I can get mine but same style in the outback I have to remove the hoses to get the bottom tabs in.

I bet 25% of the old WRXs on here are running with the bottom open.

The ones running with the bottom open are probably more susceptible to PO171 I suppose, but I don't doubt what you say. There is no reason to have those tabs be so picky on the filter cover. Otherwise, works great.
