Great car you have there! I was starting to think no one got inspired about the 2004-2005 RS since there is so much interest in the older 2 door version. I have an 04 2.5 RS, and I'd love to have a lot of the modifications that you have done on my car!

Thanks, cbrinega. Its funny because most of, if not all my local Suby buddies either own a WRX or STi the same year as mine. In the beginning they all used to ask me, "Why the hell did you get a non-turbo?" But now find out that my car stands out from the crowd and its not so plane jane. You can only go so fast on the public roads so therefore I chose a ride that can handle instead of go fast with the option of doing a swap later on.

Thats going to be a fun project for you. Which RSB are you going with?

The thing that got me into the Apollo filter is that its inclosed and it stays in the engine bay as opposed to a CAI where the filter sits in the fender and might get wet.

yeah but arent you still running a slight risk of taking in water...
or am i over estimating the force of the intake

In heavy rain, you will take in water droplets but thats not going to stop your engine. Actually a little mist of water will add performance to your engine. Its been talked about before with us N/A guys trying to use the same water injection method the turbo people use to increase power output, but it never got anywhere. Now the chances that the engine will be able to suck in a huge amount of water up that entire intake tube is very slim. Youve got our friend gravity to thank for this. I woundnt worry about it. Besides, you can always disconnect the fender tube from the filter portion from the engine bay.

yeah your right any rainy day you could disconnect the tube and run a short ram for the day....
only problem is i live in chicago where it snows for 4 months out of the year
i was gonna run it through the fog light like you did but i think ill just stick in in the fender by the wheel where a normal CAI resides and then everything would be dry
its a creative idea...i thought about doing it with the apollo months ago but never got around to it
looks like you beat me to it

Thats actually just as good. Its also the way the older Cobb CAI systems are designed - with an inclosed filter in the engine bay and a shorter tube into the fender but not all the way down.

honestly it sounds like the perfect intake
you get the colder air
and no chance of water crawling in your engine
now i have something to do this weekend

I may have missed it, but do you have any soundclips of the exhaust setup
