The AEM 21-478WR Performance Cold Air Intake System produces horsepower and torque gains by replacing your vehicle’s restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. This air intake system was designed, tuned and dyno-tested to fit specific Subaru WRX, WRX STI, Impreza WRX and Impreza WRX STI models. Air enters the system through an oversized AEM Dryflow synthetic washable air filter for outstanding air flow, filtration and performance. The air filter is located in the original air box space and is protected by a heat shield which is designed to reduce intake air temperature and increase horsepower. The intake tubing is constructed from mandrel-bent aluminum featuring a durable textured red powder coated finish. This air intake system was developed to accommodate the engine’s factory emissions control devices including the mass air flow sensor. The cylinder shaped AEM Dryflow air filter is made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed (depending on driving conditions). The air intake system is easy to install with commonly available tools and it is backed by AEM's Lifetime Limited Warranty. Some AEM air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are 50 state legal.

I am very satisfied with this system. There is a noticeable improvement in horsepower and throttle response on my 2009 Subaru WRX. I highly recommend this product.

While not a mechanic, I decided I could install this myself. Let me just say it wasn't quite the piece of cake I was hoping for, due mostly to a very tight fit (both a curse and a blessing). Beyond that, the one thing I can say for sure is that after 3 weeks, there is no question I'm getting better mileage.

I ordered this part online as a gift for by boyfriend and had a few questions about the product and emailed a AEM staff person and they got back to me ASAP with answers. Great customer service and supper friendly staff!! I would totally recommend ordering online from them! And my order was shipped and only took a few days for it to be delivered. Great job!!

I really like the intake so far. I have only had it now for a couple of weeks now but it seems to be working great. I haven't noticed any mpg gains but it has made it sound a little better than the stock one. I hope to see a change on the drag strip or dino soon. One thing I might add suggest is a military discount. Or if you have one I wasn't aware.

I was very pleased with the CAI I received and would gladly recommend y'all to any of my friends...I did however have a little confusion with a few of the pictures. It appeared to have a snug fit in the pictures that came with the installation instructions but when I put it together it wasn't snug at all until I actually put the part in my WRX...just took a little common sense. Thank you so much AEM!
