The AEM 21-478WR Performance Cold Air Intake System produces horsepower and torque gains by replacing your vehicle's restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. This air intake system was designed, tuned and dyno-tested to fit specific Subaru WRX, WRX STI, Impreza WRX and Impreza WRX STI models. Air enters the system through an oversized AEM Dryflow synthetic washable air filter for outstanding air flow, filtration and performance. The air filter is located in the original air box space and is protected by a heat shield which is designed to reduce intake air temperature and increase horsepower. The intake tubing is constructed from mandrel-bent aluminum featuring a durable textured red powder coated finish. This air intake system was developed to accommodate the engine's factory emissions control devices including the mass air flow sensor. The cylinder shaped AEM Dryflow air filter is made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed (depending on driving conditions). The air intake system is easy to install with commonly available tools and it is backed by AEM's Lifetime Limited Warranty. Some AEM air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are 50 state legal.

I have had this for over a year now and it has held up really well. This intake really cleans up and opens up the engine bay. Iir also improved the blue of sound!
Only problem I ran into is it will not work with some FMICs. If the charge pipe has to go through the fender/ wheel well you cant use themetal plate and bracket.
High quality part for a good price. Install is easy. Import Image Racing has great customer support and fast shipping. Would recommend buying this from this website.
