Constructed of black 5-ply silicone, the COBB Turbo Inlet is a direct replacement for your 2008-2014 WRX, 2005-2009 Legacy GT, or 2005-2009 Outback XT! The custom silicone construction of the COBB Turbo Inlet rejects high engine bay temperatures and keeps the intake air closer to ambient temperature. The steel wire reinforced design eliminates the issue of hose collapse that other inlet hoses suffer under vacuum at peak demand, yet allows adequate flex between the engine and the intake.

Unfortunately I made the mistake of cutting about an inch off the turbo side while installing this. I did not remove my intake manifold so it was harder to install vs if I had removed it. It seemed like it was a tad too long and then I read a few reviews where people had trimmed them. So that's what did and man was that a mistake... Now I'm stuck with one that does not fit all the way into the turbo.
I definitely recommend taking the time to remove the intake manifold, will save you a lot of headache.
Fit just perfect no cuts or anything straight plug and play
Where to start with this thing.....if your looking to upgrade your inlet stay away from this one. First off it's way too big, you have to cut nearly 2 inches off of it to fit which nowhere is mentioned you'll just have to figure it out yourself after it's finally in and have to keep pulling it in and out until it's the right length. Then hours later when it's finally in you'll realize the bracket for your boost controller is no longer usable as there's not room to stick a hair in. Looks good but for how much guessing and modification is needed to make it fit on a so called "direct fit" part is not worth buying this one in my opinion. If it came not as bulky as it is and was made aware that cutting and how much needed to cut was provided would be 100% better. I am a fan of cobbs products but I think they dropped the ball on this one.
