What is the overall CAI choice for an XT amongst the folks on the forum? I've been checking on ebay and there seem to be three vendors' CAI's for sale; AEM, Injen, and the "CP" that is going for about half the price of the others.

APS 65mm CAI. Sounds great, looks great, needs no tuning for HP. and its APS.
I checked the APS website and they list CAI's for the WRX and STI, and none for the Forester.

If it works for the STi it will usually work for the FXT...well for the '04-'05s at least.
That sounds reasonable. There's also a distributor for them and an associated performance shop in the area, so I suppose I could double check with them.

Thanks!

Air Intake Choices?

Has any one tried the Short Ram Intake by Cobb? I was wondering if a Short Ram would be quieter than a long?

I've got a TXS short ram and it's plenty noisy! I like it though, sometimes I turn my stereo off just to listen to the WOOOOOOOOOOOOSH PSSHHHH!!! ;)

The APS 65mm fits the XT fine. I researched for months before I decided on the APS, because of Subys being notorious for not being intake-friendly. I also have the APS 3'' TBE. I haven't used the stereo in over 4 months since I got these on. The intake just sounds mean, but not too loud and won't draw attention other than those who are looking for it. Also, it is not like a true Cold air, which is long and can potentially suck up water. It's a good safe choice if you want to put an intake on a subaru, even without tuning, plus it sounds amazing. But if you want the safest choice, while sounding great too, listen to Peaty and perform a snorkelectomy.

Potential water problems aside, what other advantages are there to going with the shorter length APS instead of a "true" cold air intake?

Because i have the prototype CAI in my car. Dyno tuned CAI.
Do most of the stock CAI's require some type of post installation tuning? From what I've read in some of the replies, the APS does not require any additional tuning.
