It isn't that bad...and you don't need to take the fender off. You do need to take the inner fender lining out, but that is about it.

I think it took an hour or slightly over to put in..no biggie!

Have fun....;)

thanks for the reply. so how do u like the intake. was it worth the money or would have rather gone with something else? :confused:

and i heard that the hole where the intake actually goes into the fender...the intake hits that and it scrathes it all up. is this true and if it is can there be something done?

My piece of hose was semi-stiff, little bit more flex than a garden hose. I didn't glue mine and it hasn't budged. Try it out and if you find it does have to be glued, no big deal.:D

The Injen cold air kit I got for my '98 had a piece of black trim material [a tight u shape] for the hole you are referring to.

I can say for sure everything from the air cleaner to the throttle body is the same on the 96-99 DOHC engines. The only question is if there is enough room in the fender for the CURVE of the cold air extension and filter. On the Impreza the side and bottom clearance is less than an inch around the filter:eek:

What's the best stuff the wrap the intake pipe with to keep the heat out, and will last a long time?
