I have a question about that intake. I'm assuming that what you have done looks like what Cobb has on their web site (but with a MAF in the line).
What is inside the fender well?
The PRM filter pokes into the hole into the fender well. Is it just open ended, sucking in air? Does one remove or bypass the "snorkus" thing?

Grabbed the pics from the post on the i-club.

Anyways, Commuter, you are correct that the intake is a Cobb Tuning unit. I just cut the intake tubing down about 6 inches to accomodate for the MAF/adapterplate. As for that black piece that goes into the fenderwell . . . that's a 3 inch rubber hose coupler from Home Depot. A lot of people have been complaining about how the Cobb Intakes rattle in the fenderwell. Not only does this piece prevent the rattle, as well as FIRMLY keeps the MAF isolated from vibration, it actually COMPLETELY seals off the intake opening from the engine compartment.

Other people have commented on the intake making "clunking" noises within the fender, but I haven't had any problems with that coupler in place.
If you're referring to the "good" noises, then yes, it makes A LOT of noise:D One thing I have noticed is that "whining" noise while idling that I used to hear when I had my Minnam intake is non-existant with this intake. If anyone's in the area, I'd be more than willing to test fit this piece on their car (as long as it goes back in my car after tests are completed:LOL:)

Nice work, man. Sounds REALLY impressive. Thanks for the detailed description too. Can't beat actual testimony.
Hey Schpiro....I think Fuji (subaru, actually) has made a small run of single engine, small aircraft....to answer your question. There was a post on it not too long ago, if I'm not mistaken.
