Install was pretty easy, the fitment is okay but it could be better. No issues with collapse or quality issues
This inlet is a straight through design, with no offset, which makes it a little difficult to install. Even with the intake manifold off, the inlet does not slide right on. It pushes up against the tgv near the turbo, and that could possibly cause an issue later on. When putting the manifold back on, the inlet is "fatter" towards the front of the intake and you have to push down to get the intake bolts started. Again, causing rubbing issues. And lastly, there's no included coupler that comes with the inlet to connect to the CAI. I have to get a coupler reducer to get it to properly fit. I'm assuming 3in to 2.5in reducer. Other than those few things, it's not a bad part for the price but you get what you pay for.
Installed on an 05 WRX. The stock inlet (and other brands, like Perrin) have an offset at the end. This inlet is dead straight, which makes the installation tricky... when initially installed it's missing the turbo by an inch. You have to struggle to get it on.
Once installed, however, it's great. No problems, and you really can't beat the price.
Removing the intake manifold would have made life much easier.
The turbo inlet sounds great and fit like a glove! Fast delivery and product in stock!
