    Great performance product, easy to install  2 years ago

    I'm already impressed with the small power gain and engine sound improvement from this product. The install went perfectly, thanks for the detailed instructions with photos, very helpful. Would definitely recommend for quality aftermarket product without high cost of entry. See photo for before and after comparison.

    Awesome intake, making over 20psi now 4 years ago
    5out of 5stars
    DadWagon
    I added this intake to my 17 Forester XT after speaking to the manager of my Subaru service department. I had a K&N drop in filter already and it didn’t do much. He told me that the new FA engines really come to life with an intake. I also have a WRX midpipe and a muffler delete. I’m not running a tune and despite what everyone says, I’ve owned two STIs and had CAI and didn’t tune them, without problems. I had my last STI for 10 yrs with over 100k, no issues. My peak boost regularly hits 19-20 now from 15-16 before and my car is fast as hell. This is the first Cold Air Intake that actually did something. Thanks

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    • Q: 2016 Forest XT Question  Zapp!2 years ago

      If I buy this intake, i see that tunes are recommended, will my car run poorly or show a check engine light if I install this without a tune?
      • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

        A:  You will not be getting the most power out of the intake without tuning. It will still run okay, and you should not get a check engine light.

    • Q: Will this fit  guzag25 years ago

      a 2018 Forester 2.0xt premium?
    • Q: Aem cold air intake  Jeff6 years ago

      Hi, I own a Subaru forester xt 2015 and im having a hard time deciding weather I should get a short ram intake or a cold air intake like the aem one.? What would be the best choice? Also what is the oem intake thats currently on forester xt 2015 would you say it's a short ram or cold air intake? I live in Canada and it gets pretty darn cold down here.. just looking for something that would be best for the car and specially with the weather that we got here. Thanks so much!

        A:  That's a great question and there really is no "wrong answer" on this.. The OEM intake is nothing more than just the factory panel style filter and factory piping, so when you upgrade to an aftermarket intake you are getting more aiflow into the system with the improved design of piping and larger filter. With this cold air intake having an airbox, I would assume it would be a good option despite your weather conditions.

    • Q: Aem intake fitment  agrasso123828267 years ago

      I just recently purchased a 2016 Subaru Forester XT premium and see you have no parts listing for this vehicle yet. Can you confirm if this intake will fit a 2016 model as well? Common sense tells me yes but I could not get a response from AEM regarding fitment. Thank you!
