2003 WRX/Apexi Thoughts

The quality of this filter is superb. The frame around it is solid and completes itself with the rubber gasket surrounding the top to ensure that the filter box is sealed. It's a little more expensive than a cheap filter from Autozone when factoring in the shipping. But, would I buy it again? Definitely! I mean, who wouldn't want more JDM in their Subaru? I did notice slightly better throttle response, but that's more likely due to changing out the dirty filter. There isn't any noticeable increase in power since it's just a drop-in filter. The included date/mileage record sticker is a nice touch so you can keep track of when to change the filter again.
Quality for a decent price

I don't write many reviews but this is a good product. I've had three of these filters and not one problem. Better flow than OEM without sacrificing in filtration quality. It's a great little upgrade for those who want to keep their stock airbox.

Perfect fitment, and way better than a K&N filter with the dirty oil that mess up the maf sensor! 5 Star!

This filter fits my 1986 300zx Z31 n/a. After doing some research I found out that the earlier Z31's used an identical airbox as the 1988 Z31 but a different model filter (Every Z31 used the same airbox but a different model air filter which in reality were all the same). So technically this air filter should fit all 300zx Z31's before 1988. Or any Z with a 16500-01P00 model air box.

Just installed it tonight on my 2002 WRX sedan. Fits perfectly and has worked great so far. I live in south Florida and it is my daily driver. How many miles can I expect out of this filter? No auto-x or track or anything, just some spirited driving here and there :) thanks. I presume around 4k?
A: Really Depends on your location, but I would check it every oil change to be sure.

Q: Will this filter work on my car? hhhp 6 years agoAnswer
Hi i have a 2007 subaru impreza 2.5i and i want to replace its stock air filter. In the owner's manual it says that the stock filter has oil on it so given that this Apexi is a dry filter i was wondering if it will not cause any unwanted effects on the air sensor or the intake system. Thank you
A: Great question! The reason the stock filter has an oil on it is because it is a wet designed filter. This one is a dry, as you stated. We have many many customers running this filter with zero downsides! There is no unwanted effects on the air sensor.
