Mike, sorry to get this thread back on track, but bmanuhutu mentioned the actual price of the Injen CAI in another thread. It seems a bit pricey to me and somewhat limiting because the location of the intake cone restricts some other modifications that I might want to do.

I come from the Subaru world, and as far as all most of the tuners were concerned, the stock airbox in the WRX was never that much of a bottleneck. It flowed a decent amount of air and that, combined with the fact that it was actually pulling cold air from outside the engine bay, put it very low on the hierarchy of mods.

There seem to be some decent gains to be had, but if my ultimate goal is to convert over to a twin-scroll setup, is this really something I should be looking at?

Sounds like for your application you would need something more custom made. Especially for a tranny cooler. For locals we can always do more and better custom work than what you get as a mail order kit. We can do things different if we are making it by hand for your car vs something that needs to be a universal bolt on with basic tools.

On an X MR that gets track day use, we made a giant Setrab cooler for the side location and another Setrab cooler up in the grill area above the bumper. The lower cooler has a giant Spal fan and the upper cooler has two small Spal fans on it. We could never make that a mail order kit since everything was just able to squeeze in custom made.

The Injen doesn't fit if you have factory HID/projectors.

Default I do not like the Injen for the RA

I am a big fan of the Injen intake, but not for the RA. I love their intake for the Evo X (best IMO), and their intake for the Evo 8/9 (second best). But on the RA they dropped the ball. That rubber hose is a disaster. It is too soft and seems to collapse under suction especially when you increase the boost on the car. On Gear Grinder's car, it lowered the load numbers logged. That told me that something was wrong. I think the collapsing hose has something to do with. GG removed the Injen and went back to stock. The car recovered a lot of the lost load.

I do not know why Injen cheaped out and used rubber hose instead of an all aluminum design.
