Have you used "weapon-r" intake in California?

Before I blow money on something that doesn't fit or won't really pass smog, I wanted to ask. I know there's some of you that have to smog test their car on here. I think injen is the only other one I found that list specifically for this vehicle and carb exempt. From the pic it doesn't really look like it's made to go on a MAF, but often these are generic pics.

I know it's not much work to just swap the intake back to stock once every two years. So maybe open to other options. But I like the idea of my car just staying how it is and being legal.

Confirm the EO number here to make sure it's legal:

Has to have an EO# listed in that database and CARB sticker to be legal in california.

Your subaru already has a very good TRUE cold air intake.

 

Replace your pare filter regularly and spend your money elsewhere.  ntohing to be gained from messing eith intake tube.

I've heard that argument before about intake, but just can't jump on board til I prove it to myself. I took acceleration times and will make a comparison.
I bought this intake, and looks like a nice combination of decent china quality and cheesy riceroni style. Also, it did not include CARB sticker! Ugh. Still waiting on reply about that

Stupid

 

Waste of $200 dollars.

 

If it makes any slight amount more power, it will be at the expense of proper filtration.....the air it sucks will be warmer.......and dirtier.

Haven't even messed with this yet, but found some good unbiased filter testing:

Which does support Gloyale's comments. I have some other old intake tubes and think I can make a hybrid intake of sorts, and use my carb eo sticker.
