Pod filters can be tricky on the Boxer too as it can mess with the AFM, from my previous WRX ownage the Apexi filter was the best option pretty sure it was the non oil based one too.

The lights better be STI lights (red and clear) anything else just looks shocking on them.

mate, thats not the case with any suby i have had , pod filter will do nothing but make cool noise and allow you run flutter sounds good. a pod filter will do something when you run an in guard set up.

I blew 3 AFM's in a row running pod filter. Had to keep putting the airbox back on because Subaru wouldn't cover it under warranty with a pod filter.

Oiled filters such as some of the HKS ones will foul up your AFM. Paper or cardboard types like the Apexi ones are fine and won't cause you any problems

hmmm good info i just bought a wrx, in terms of pod filters is it just any oiled filters that foul up the AFM or is it specific types... any other type you guys like apart from Apexi?

http://www.apexperfo...&products_id=57

Description:The BLITZ 'Sus' Power air filters are made from the same top quality T304 stainless steel as the Nur Spec exhausts. Totally unique to BLITZ, the entire filtration element is made from a fine stainless steel mesh.

This mesh means the filters never wear out, and have substantially less restriction than any other filter. Most aftermarket filters are made from paper or foam elements, and require oiling to maintain their filtration capacity.

This oil gradually disperses into the inlet tracts of an engine, and coats the walls and in particular the air flow sensor, slowly reducing the performance of the vehicle.

k & n filters are oil types

if you have oil on your AFM you might be able to clean it off there are products just for the purpose.... are the standard filters restrictive??

Agreement don't run a atmo bov on a Wrx, cause a real rich then lean spot during shifting, get a proper good branded cai for them sounds way nicer and too the twat that said Subaru afm meters and temperamentle too pods please don't buy a Subaru again, I'm sick of replacing afm for people, cause they don't use the right pod or just do the air box mod.

Regarding the BOV. I performed the intake silencer delete on both of my Subis. You hear the turbo spool and the stock valve hiss. It's not too loud and I've had no adverse affects for over 2 years.
