No, that one will not work, as it's for the turbo engine configuration.
This is the one for your car: SUBARU IMPREZA 2008-2011 2.5L NON-TURBO 2.5i/ PREMIUM/ RS/ SW/ SPORT (but it's out of stock)
This one should be the same, (this one is in stock) because I believe that the intake diameters are the same: SUBARU IMPREZA 2008-2011 2.0L NON-TURBO 2.0R/ RS BP5/ GH7 EJ20

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, or you can call the manufacturer for clarification.
I’m not to sure but my rs has the black cover at the top so it doesn’t bend like that and the stock one is a short one coming out of the box

Pictures might be helpful in this situation so we can see what you're looking at.

Okay, I thought as much, so go back to the links above and look at the second picture. The intake replaces all of the black plastic from the throttle body (at the metal intake) all the way to the "scoop" above the radiator, and relocates the filter into the fender (away from heat).

So the black box is removable and is it difficult because I’m getting into cars but am not that good at installing as it took me around 2 hrs to install my sub and amp

I guessed. lol but we all start somewhere man. Just remember that everything, even the engine, is removable! lol Honestly, it's most likely an easy install, and I'd bet that it'll even come with directions to help you out

Ye I saw a video and it looked easy I’m just not sure about the black box cus I lifted my hood and it looks like it’s just a plastic box but there are metal bars connected with bolts which I assume is for support so do I just leave those bars there?

And is there any Australian sites that sell the same thing because the shipping is 300 to me but in total it’s still 500 aud which is around the price they go for over here

I don't see a spot for your MAF ("Mass AirFlow" sensor, the sensor that measures airflow into the engine, little black box with wires coming out of it) on that one. Different years of car (and even cars of the same year but in different markets!) can have different sensors. The easiest way to be confident about compatibility (if you're not going to just buy something made for your car) is to take your existing intake off and look at where various sensors and hoses go. Some of them will be in places that are hard to spot with it in the car. It's also a good trial run for doing the swap. :)

Is it the whole black round part or just the little detachable sensor because On the one you linked me in the photos I saw the little black sensor connected and that’s what I thought the air sensor was so because the one u linked was built for my model so if the parts are looking good I’ll just get the cosmo racing one. And as for the trial run I have a family mechanic that specialises in engine rebuilds and mods so before I buy anything I’m going to go to him to talk and look at the parts to see if everything is all good.
