Default the time is... now

So FINALLY i installed my Invidia hfc dp and Perrin quad tip cbe. Reflashed with COBB stage 2 and i'm LOVIN' every second of it. Performance gains are greatly noticeable and the exhaust note is just beautiful. Video will be up sometime soon. If you heard from MissAllWheelDrive about an "issue" from a recently installed tbe, that was about my car, lol. 99% sure figured out what the problem is.. will need a short ram or CAI.

I've been told by some that a cai is not too reliable for the new STi's. Some people were having problems. Whats the word goin around?

not sure on the CAI for the new ones. I would say if you are going CAI, get protuned. You should be able to get by with a drop in filter and snorkus delete, to fix your whistle.

Going for a CAI skews your Maf scaling and leans your AFR's which is what you dont want. New STi's and WRX's are VERY sensitive to the air intake... it looks like from 2004 and on they got more and more sensitive... But yeah you dont want to run a lean condition... if you want n intake might as well get the Cobb one since you most likely have a map on your accessport to tune it.

There's no snorkel/air intake muffler/resonator on the 08,09's like previous years. Im waiting for SPT to come out with there's to keep my warranty, and to get a shiney new CARB sticker!!

Well sadly COBB does not offer an intake for my car yet. But yea Scat, i totally forgot about the option of deleting the TGV. So maybe while my car is out of commission, i can PnP my turbo, haha. We'll see..

I do have a drop in filter already, but the whistle still remains and is pretty dominant in the cabin.. Sounds kind of sexy but it shouldn't be there.
