Features & Product Details

Grimmspeed is a pioneering company in the world of turbocharged and sport compact performance. With that being said they combine expertise, and careful manufacturing methods to produce high-performance products that produce results. With that being said Grimmspeed examined several factory intake systems to identify their restrictions and shortcomings only to improve on them. Over months of several testing designs, their advanced research, and development program fully utilized their engineering resources to deliver an intake solution that will make the most out of an intake system.

The result is a quality cold air intake system designed with tuners in mind. During the design process, Grimmspeed made careful considerations in the regard that the MAF sensor must be protected from the heat of the engine bay for accurate readings without placing the filter close enough to the ground that it could absorb water or moisture. The MAF sensor must be placed relative to the filter and air straightener that is similar to the OEM airbox for consistent and reliable readings. Additionally, the intake tube must have smooth bends to limit air turbulence under acceleration while maintaining a proper length. Furthermore, the heat shield must provide sealing between the induction area and the engine bay to keep the air intake temperatures as low as possible. The intake tube will also come in a nice powder-coated black finish to provide a cleaner look to the engine bay. 

The filter, hardware, a silicone coupler with a clamp, as well as the seals for the intake box will be included to make the Grimmspeed Cold Air Intake ready for the installation. 

Note that in order to maximize the performance out of this filter, a tune is required for a properly running vehicle.

Great product  7 months ago
5out of 5stars

The product is great. I was a small bit skeptical buying because I wasn't sure if my intake temps would improve because no reviews covered in depth. But I will say that after installing my intake temps went down to a constant 8° - 11° above ambient which is extremely good. My fenderwell fell off at one point and my intake temps went up to 20° above ambient so my advice would be to keep your fenderwell on lol. The sound is pretty cool and louder than stock but that wasn't the reason I bought it. I am more than satisfied with the intake temps and durability of it. Definitely a product i would buy again.

Easy and stealthy 11 months ago
5out of 5stars

I love this intake. Grimmspeed says they took the best of SM and CAI and put it to good use. It looks perfect, super functional, plus you get that lovey turbo spook and blow off sound, without spending money on a nice blow off valve. This thing seals out the engine heat from the filter and my MAF sensor showed me a 20 degree drop in the incoming air charge off the bat. I live in a warmer climate, so this is definitely Worth it to me!

Sounds great 1 year ago
5out of 5stars

After the easy 30-40 minute install of this on my 2014 WRX hatchback, I can hear my turbo spool pretty loudly. It sounds great and combined with my Cobb exhaust, both sounds are intoxicating and make me smile every time I go near the throttle. Slight power gain but the most noticeable difference is the noise.

Great Intake 3 years ago

I got this for my 2010 WRX sedan. Install was very easy and straight forward. It has a clean look and if you get the right tune, you can definitely feel the power improvement.

Woosh! 2014 WRX STi Hatchback 5 years ago
4out of 5stars

For me I am slow installer and it took 1.5 hours mainly because I ran out of daylight and my hands were cold. Removing the stock airbox is a pain due to hose retaining clips on the stock box interfering with removal. Installation tips are to lubricate the grommet strips when you press them on and also spread out the grommet at tight turns since their are internal metal structural tabs that can get hung up when trying to press in. I almost and then did not, cut the strips shorter where tight turns existed. Would be nice if 3mm MAF screws were stainless, does not cost much more to improve this screw. Had to zip tie a hose down and away so it would not contact intake pipe. It would be nice if a thin rubber or foam gasket 1/32" thick was included for mounting point at top and bottom to reduce metal to metal contact (rust). Might also reduce sound from the intake noise. On boost and shifting it is WOOSHY! Cruising etc. it is stock like.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: Cleaning solution  Studebaker834 years ago

    In looking at images it appears the filter is the same design as the K&N and was wondering if their cleaning solution would work. If not what would you use to clean it?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Grimmspeed doesn't have a specific cleaner for this intake, but any cleaner that works with a cotton style filter like this will work well with it.

  • Q: Intake air temps  juanh35 years ago

    Does this intake make your intake temp increase a lot compared to the stock one. I've read and heard that the cobb intake does. Was just wondering if this one did also.
  • Q: Australian WRX  mikeyy5 years ago

    hello im wondering if this will fit a Australian 2013 wrx?
