This leads me to my 2002 Legacy GT. I've observed all the large and small plastic growths/appendages/boxes hanging, protruding, and attached along the plastic pipe from the intake in the front by the radiator to the airfilter box. Anyone performed a "tumor-ectomy" to late models Subarus? Any info would be great. Thanks!

I always wondered what the 8" X 1" plastic "handle"
coming off the intake tube was, Any ideas?

K&N element in the standard filter box. Standard pipe into the fender is sawed of just after it turns downward. Attached to it's end is carburator velocity stack that I bought at a motorbike shop. It is imperative that air is drawn in from the fender cavity, since it is cooler, therefore more dense...blah..blah..blah...
Okay, power gains are always going to be debatable. Needs a turbo to do anything serious, but I would pass a "Pepsi Challenge" on the throttle response. The sound is deep chested, big lung, but not overtly obtrusive, and it sounds smooth. Not the uncultered BARP from removing the snorkel completely.
I reckon the velocity stack plays an important role both for throttle response and sound. At high revs (4000+) the sound is very "race car" in character....hey, that reminds me, it must be time for a drive!!
