Perrin's turbo inlet hose for the stock WRX and STi features 5-ply silicone construction with a wire mesh for maximum durability. Silicone construction means extreme resistance to heat soak, and a smooth internal passageway, unlike the corrugated rubber stock Subaru WRX & STi inlet.
The 3in turbo inlet is made for bigger than stock turbos and will not fit the factory one. If you've upgraded your turbo then it's a great idea to upgrade your turbo inlet. This allows for freer and more air to enter the system ultimately creating more power. 2.4 inch on back order frequently please check with IIR sales rep if you need it quickly before ordering! 5/13/10 update, 10 in stock!Perrin's silicone construction ensures the maximum possible tube diameter is utilized, and the non-corrugated interior allows for optimal airflow; opening up the intake tract and making more power!

Definitely a recommend replacement upgrade for those who want peace of mind from a damaged old factory leaking turbo inlet! High quality and flow design! Looks great in the bay!
This is a great inlet that works well and was definitely an upgrade from my OEM on my WRX. It's high quality and looks great but was a bit difficult to install.
Great fitment, take your time when installing and you should have no issues installing. i recommend 2 people to make the installation a little quicker.
Replaced my OEM tired nasty looking inlet for this perrin inlet. Fits nice on my new VF48! Tight fit but i would buy again! Highly recommend.. Also, Josh and the crew at IIR rock!
The 2nd perrin turbo inlet I've had. The first from IIR, it definitely won't be the last. Top notch service and great shipping times.
Now this turbo inlet (after perrin revision) is fantastic. It come with everything needed to install and it's great quality. Installation is very much a pain but it's worth it. I felt decreased spool times and definitely felt a different in staying in boost longer between shifts. Overall I would 10/10 recommend to anyone.
Also, it helps make lots of WHOOSHING noises too.. Which is sweet.
