Every Intake Upgrade For Your Subaru WRX

Subaru WRX Intake Upgrade

Since COBB Tuning’s inception, one of our first hard parts after developing tuning has always been an intake upgrade. Vehicle manufacturers tend to be out of touch with what enthusiasts want, AS. MUCH. TURBO. NOISE. AS. POSSIBLE. Nobody can resist the urge to give that extra throttle input to get the turbo spooling bringing joy to our ears!

Freeing up flow and pre-restrictions to the turbo is an easy way to free up horsepower, torque, and low-end spool making the car quicker and more fun to drive. It’s easily one of the first modifications enthusiasts upgrade and can be installed in as little as ten minutes while cleaning up the look of the engine bay and an offering that aesthetic that many seek!

2002-2005 WRX

Subaru Intake, Airbox, & Post-MAF Hose for WRX 2002-2005

This intake and integrated airbox look great and have the combined benefits of a short ram intake and a cold air intake without any of the negatives. This 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, we use a CFD-designed velocity stack leading to an unique air flow straightener grid. This straightener grid is specifically designed to smooth the incoming air flow as it passes the Mass Air Flow sensor for precise readings. This eliminates the “dead spots” experienced by other aftermarket intakes due to turbulence. No other aftermarket Subaru intake system utilizes these critical design elements.

Subaru Intake, Airbox, and Post-MAF Hose for WRX 2006-2007

The 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. The SF Air Box adds the benefits of a cold air intake to the outstanding performance of the SF Intake. The factory inlet directs cold air from the front grill to the SF Airbox, which encloses the SF Intake. Hot engine bay air that robs horsepower is prevented from entering the intake system. This unique design also separates rainwater from the intake air, eliminating the water ingestion issues that plague in-fender cold air intakes. The 4-ply silicone construction has the right compliance to bridge the chassis mounted airbox to the violent motion of a boxer engine being driven in anger, while the steel reinforcement prevents collapse when the turbo is drawing maximum vacuum at wide open throttle.
