This is an OLDER example of making a hybrid intake system. I used a cheaply bought Weapon R Secret Weapon intake system from an 06 and chopped it to fit as a hybrid system. More info on the different systems can be found at the link below.
A Problem with CAI/SRIs and an Alternative (yes, finally)

This is what happens when you run an upgraded rear sway bar (22mm) and dont upgrade your endlinks as well. LOL

I upgraded the rear differential mount bushings from Turn In Concepts. Before when accelerating and during hard shifting there was a lot of slop in the rear end, but now that's a thing of the past. I also upgraded to the rear subframe outrigger bushings from Kartboy.

Nice job on the fabricated intake. - I did the exact same thing, used an old Option Racing 3" short ram and cut it to fit w. silicone couplers. Mine runs to the stock airbox also. I'm interested in the Injen front air inlet as this would work for my 1996 Legacy also, I've never seen one until now, where'd you get it?

The front air inlet is actually off of an 05 STI. It just happen to have an Injen sticker on it from the junk yard. Any WRX or STI inlet should work but make sure your hood will close with it on.

Heres a bit more detail on the AccessPort mount I fabricated. Its cut out of 16ga steel and then hand bent to face the driver. I then painted it hammered grey to match my stereo bezel. I used industrial Velcro on both where the mount attaches to the inside of the DIN cubby hole and the AccessPort. This way I have an option to remove either the whole mount or just the AP. The industrial Velcro holds everything very tight.
