  • Q: Cobb Intakes  JakeLegacyGT8 months ago

    So I have a 2005 legacy gt and I have been searching for a cobb sf intake and box and I was wondering if a 09 wrx cobb sf intake will fit in my legacy. I mean they are the same engines and everything just wasn't sure what the main difference is?
    • 0 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The 08-14 WRX intake is a different part. The one for your Legacy GT is this one: https://www.rallysportdirect.com/part/short-ram-air-intakes/cob-724100bk-cobb-tuning-short-ram-sf-intake-system-black

    Can I mount this Intake on a 06 WRX limited without having the Cobb post maf hose?

    I just noticed that this SF intake System is Carb Exempt (MODEL # COB 712100) & (MODEL # COB 712300), BUT when I checked the full Kit with Air Box and MAF hose, it's NOT Carb Exempt.(MODEL # COB SUB00001IA) .

      A:  All three of the kits/ part numbers are CARB and they will all come with CARB stickers. All three part numbers have the D-660-4 Exempt Code

  • Q: Fitment Between Models  Jackstand Johnny3 years ago

    Hi. What models and years does this intake fit? If I got one for a 2002 WRX, would it also fit on a 2004 STi? Or are they two different models because of the different engines between the above mentioned Subarus? Basically Im asking if the exact same kit is sold for the 2002 wrx as the 2004 STi? Thanks!
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This will fit a 2002 WRX and a 2004 STi. If you would like to more about what vehicles are confirmed for this part. Check the confirmed fitment list on the left side of the product page.

  • Q: Cobb Intake  STI_Fanatic3 years ago

    Okay so I installed this to my 03 WRX about 2 months ago, and the blue on the filter went away and actually turned white/grey. What does this mean?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The blue comes from the oil COBB uses on their intake's. The paper element of the filter is actually the white/grey color and if there is no more blue, this will indicate that the filter needs to be re-oiled. You can purchase the SF Cleaning kit from us! Search part # COB 700200B

    What is the size of this intake. Is this the same like the 70mm Cobb intake? Will this work with 06 sti, 20g turbo on methanol?

      A:  This intake is stock size, which is 70mm OD, and it will work well with a 20G on a 06 STI.

  • Q: im a noob :(  genjackoneil4 years ago

    Hello! i bought a 05 WRX sedan last year from california. ( i drove it back home here to Montana ) Its in really good condition, completely stock. Ive had the car a year now, really happy with it, and am really anxious to get to modding the car. But im not entirely sure where to start. I figured this might be the best point to start. i thought installing this Cobb Sort ram intake + Cobb MAF Silicone Hose might be a good start. Since i live in a Hot/Cold/Dusty environment, would getting the box for this be a good idea? Any other recommendations? Or other additional parts i would need? As i said before this is my first mod so i dont really have alot of knowledge on this subject. Also i checked to see where the nearest place i could get a tune done here. its 350 miles away. so if i need to get it tuned i would rather save time and money and get all my mods done at the same time. ( if necessary ) Sorry for the long post, And thanks for any answers or help i can get!
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Hello! I do recommend getting the air box, but it is not required. I also recommend getting the Cobb AccessPort to tune your car. This will allow you to flash the proper map on your car and drive, so you can avoid driving 350+ miles to get a tune from a shop.

  • Q: Air intake duct?  xdennislol5 years ago

    Would this require the air intake duct? Or would I be fine without it?
    • 0 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The airbox and snorkel is not mandatory, but it is recommended as it helps reduce the intake air temperatures and increase performance of the intake.

  • Q: Air duct  Aero3834887306 years ago

    Should the factory air duct be reinstalled after intake is on?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Are you referring to the snorkel piece in the fender? It does need to either be trimmed or removed for this intake to be installed properly.

    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Yes, the factory air duct should be re-installed after the intake is installed. The factory air duct will help channel air from the grill directly to the intake. The installation of this piece does not require the air duct to be modified or removed in order to run the Cobb intake.

  • Q: Difference  Dan Harper6 years ago

    Whats the real difference between this and a regular cold air Intake? Jc
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The biggest difference between short ram and cold air intakes is piping length and filter placement. They will perform similarly if you get the airbox with this intake.

  • Q: Mpg  jpdollins190316 years ago

    Will this help my mileage? I'm averaging around 23 in town and 28 in the road in my 03 wrx. And I don't need a tune after install? Just instal and drive with no problems?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This would not really have an impact on the fuel economy of the car, but is a worthwhile mod all around. I would also recommend a tune with this as well. If the car is not tuned, you will notice a nice increase in fuel economy and power with the Cobb Accessport, which would also have a built in tune for this intake as well. Thanks.

      A:  Heat soak is always a issue with a open element short ram intake. To prevent it, consider the air box that Cobb offers for this system

  • Q: Do I need a tune  Subaru man6 years ago

    i have an 02 wrx with alot of mods which is vf39 turbo 07 wrx injectors 3 down pip with greddy 3 full exhaust sti top mount and a k&n drop in filter Denos 1 step colder spark plugs xtd stage 2 clucht.. I've been told that I have a stage 3 set up but after reviewing this it says this set up is good for a stage 1 & 2 but what about for a stage 3 and if I get it will I need to get a retune or should I be looking for something else
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  You would want to go onto Cobb's website, but they do list their additional stage 3 maps on their Accessport page for your WRX. As long as all your mods line up with the required mods on their Stage 3 map, it will be plug and play for you, if not, then you would want to get a custom tune. Thanks.

      A:  The Cobb and SPT intakes are very similar, however, we are unable to confrim fitment with this intake and the SPT air box at this time. I would recommend investing in the Cobb Air box to pair this intake perfectly. Thank you!

  • Q: FMIC fit?  Attia1997 years ago

    I have an 06 sti with a Turbo XS FMIC, and i have a cobb accessport tuner but i do not have the SF intake. I have right now an HKS intake on, and it looks to barely fit in with the intercooler pipes running right next to it. The SF intake looks to be a little bigger than my intake now.. will it still fit. ill post a picture so you can see.
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  We are not able to confirm fitment as its not something we have tried in house. Typically you want to stick with the same manufacture of the Intercooler as the intake to confirm proper fitment.

    Do I have to buy the Silicone Hose that goes with this intake or is there already a stock one on my car that I can use?

      A:  This intake installs into your stock post maf hose. You can upgrade your stock unit with the aftermarket one Cobb offers but it is not required.

  • Q: Horsepower gain??  kingofthe_hill094427 years ago

    Does this intake guarantee any specific numbers in hp gain?? Will it show a higher hp reading on the tuning access port in stage 1?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Cobb does not specify any specific horsepower gains with their intake. This will allow your car to breath much better without the air restriction so the power gains are going to be relative to the modifications to your vehicle at the time.
