2005 Outback 3.0R 5EAT
Yesterday, I purchased this OBXT hood for a song and put it on my 3.0R Limited just today. I purchased it because I plan to install/fabricate a top mounted cold air intake. There are so many questions I have about this, like does it actually give any power gains? Will I need a tune? Does a company make something for this? Should I worry about water Ingestion? I have seen this done on some 2.5i Imprezas with custom made airboxes and a discontinued product by Gorilla Offroad, but nothing on an outback. I may be able to do this pretty easily, because the scoop puts air directly on top of the airbox, which leads me to think that I could just cut the top off of it, install a filter, and call it a day. If I can´t pull a CAI off, I guess I will end up putting the old hood back on. I love the look of the scoop, but I hate having phony ¨performance¨ stuff that adds nothing. Any help on this would be appreciated!
