Description

Increased Power The C.A.R.B certified (2010+ pending) COBB Tuning SF Intake removes a pre-turbo restriction in the stock intake system. The SF Intake intake system utilizes several unique features in an effort to maintain optimal flow for performance while minimizing turbulence that can cause engine management problems. From a custom conical cloth air-filter element, a CFD-designed velocity stack leads to an unique air flow straightener grid designed to smooth the incoming air flow as it passes the Mass Air Flow sensor for precise readings. The intake utilizes a one piece design constructed from a high temperature plastic composite, saving weight and reducing heat transfer. Increased Induction Sound Enjoy the increased snarl from your engine and hear the turbo spool more clearly with the addition of the COBB Tuning SF Intake system. Turbocharger induction noise and bypass valve venting sound is much more audible using this intake system. Easy to Install The COBB Tuning SF Intake was designed to be easy to install without having to modify your car. Installation requires no cutting or trimming of any components and can be completed with simple hand tools. Simply remove the stock airbox and bolt the SF intake into place in just minutes. Calibrations All aftermarket intakes for 08+ Subarus require tuning, regardless of manufacturer, in order to ensure the MAF sensor reads properly and the engine operates within safe parameters. COBB Tuning has you covered with Off-The-Shelf Maps for the Accessport, making it as easy as install, flash and go! Head over to the Subaru Accessport Map Database to view the full selection of SF Intake Maps for your vehicle.


Why?

Setting the standard for MAF style intakes with a velocity stack, airflow straighteners and composite body for ultimate performance. All aftermarket intakes for 08+ Subarus require tuning, regardless of manufacturer, in order to ensure the MAF sensor reads properly and the engine operates within safe parameters.

Reviews
Subaru SF Intake System is rated 4.8462 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Intake Around, Great Fitment & Performance, Awesome Sound. Installed on my 2015 WRX STI, Install of any intake is really simple but Cobb's instructions were very easy to follow. The stock MAF sensor, bracket, nuts/bolts fit flawlessly and all air connections are definitely air tight. Installed in about 30 minutes, tuned the car with the available OTS map on Cobb's website (93 Oct , SF, Normal Wastegate), and off to the races! Thing sounds like a jet plane when you barely even hit boost, the sound of the wastegate is much more prominent as most could figure. As for power gains there is a noticeable difference but I haven't compared my data yet to check. To anyone else that has a 2015, This does remove the stock intake tube that goes into the cabin and you don't have to do anything after its removed. I'm not a fan of CAI due to the pain of getting to the filter so Cobb's SF intake is a dream come true, Thanks Cobb!!! Check out the photos to see the difference between stock and aftermarket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product - 2015 STI Prior to installing the intake the car was 100% stock. Installation is super easy (30 mins) and requires only the simplest of tools. After installation I downloaded the 15 STI 91+map from the website and uploaded it to the car. I highly recommend this combo to anyone feeling like the car deserves a bit more power. I was surprised to find the car pulls noticeably harder and sounds amazing. The intake is loud so if you don't want to hear the turbo/wastegate keep the stock intake and just flash to stage 1. I went 91 tune although I run 93 octane to stay on the slightly safer side. Great products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, DEFINITELY requires tuning!! Installed this intake within about 20 minutes, super easy! Need just an 8mm, 10mm sockets & ratchet, and philips screwdriver. Looks clean. It's C.A.R.B. legal, which is great for me in CA. Like it states in the product info-NEEDS TUNING!! Just ordered the Accessport to compliment this. Car hesitates WOT near 5,000rpm, but Cobb states you need a tune! All in all, 5 stars and worth the price/legality/cleanliness!! Going to perform a ECU relearn, which might take care of it. But still want the AP for all the other features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely intake but it really needs the Cobb airbox! Just installed this on my 2015 STI w/ the Stage 1+SF ACN91 and I must say it has more pep in its step. Without telling box the AIT's get pretty hot. I live by the beach and it was only 70 out. I was in the drive thru for only 5 minutes and the AIT's got to 175! No good! Cobb please release the airbox now! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound! I recieved my sf intake today for my 2015 STI. Install was easy, even though I had to remove the factory sound tube. I just put a rubber stopper where the tube used to be. Looks great in the engine bay. Turbo really spools up and it sounds like I have an aftermarket BOV. Throttle response was touchy at first, but this could be due to my car relearning the stage 1+ map. Overall great product! Can't wait for the airbox and stage 2 maps to come out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product i owned a 2012 wrx sti limited, first of all the product looks amzing, and how it was made, its worth every penny, installation took 10min, installation is very easy, i didnt even have to search for an instruction, thats how easy it was. After the install, i installed the appropriate map, which for mine is stage1+SF, i was amazed how i can hear the turbo spool now and the stock BOV, is very noticeable. overall i highly recommend this product whos looking to do a first uprgrade, and dont forget the cobb AP.:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I purchased the AEM intake a few years ago for my 11 WRX and decided to replace it this year vs. continuing to purchase the replacement AEM filters. The Cobb intake is something I should have purchased a while ago. Not bashing AEM as it's a decent product but the quality of the Cobb intake is much better, washable filter is a bonus, size is more manageable and the rally box is an awesome option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound! Great product, very easy to install. Install directions for the 2015 STi fail to mention the sound induction pipe that goes to the cabin has to be removed. So I am letting anyone who was confused seeing an extra hose in the way that all it is in the pipe for the induction noise and it is easy to remove. Beyond that i can really hear the turbo and it sounds like I have an after market bypass valve now. Very pleased with this product and rice was right where it should be.
