Post Cold Air Intake

Hello all..... I have a 200 Outback and was wondering if putting a cold air intake would do me any good and if so how difficult would it be to put on and what parts would I need..

Doesn't help much but it's easy. Many posts and threads on that topic, give a search.

Seek and ye shall find. That was Shakespeare whatnit?

Just type "cold air intake" into the Google bar at the top of the forum page. Have a drink handy to sip on as you spend the hours going through the data posted.

Take a good look at your engine bay and you will see that AWDFTW is correct.

A 200 Outback? Is Chrysler building them now, or is that one horse-drawn?

Lol just messin' with ya. . . Welcome aboard. . yeah, no need for a CAI. You can cobble something aftermarket together if you want but all it'll do is make more noise. . . won't get you any extra MPG or make you think the VTEC just kicked in.

I seem to get a lot of "will xx fit in my car?" emails. . . I'm not the authority on everything Subaru, so I very well may tell you the wrong answer as there's nobody else to check me. Please search or ask via the forums first. . .when I answer you via email, it never gets posted and nobody else can confirm or refute my answer.

Just because its at the shop waiting on a header and he actually did a good job with it, look close at the ram, here is Krubious' Gen 2 Ram work.

Yeah, if you search you will find this setup. This is mine and I did it after seeing posts on here. I think it cost around $12 (Home Depot Motorsports). I just wanted to remove those resonators. At some point I'd like to remove the stock airbox, but then there's the need to address the hoses and sensor.

I've only seen one system made for these cars and I think it was around $100. I didn't think it was worth it. I'm not honestly sure a K&N replacement filter is even worth it.
