The pictures not my car - the hose is a special order part - took a bit of digging to find a UK supplier even though they are made here as I didn't fancy paying for a hose to travel to Japan and back!

I am now trying to find a brake stopper though!

I had a CDF one on the Impreza and yes you could feel the difference.

Just fitted the Samco intake hose - should be a bit less restrictive now the old hose had a resonator and corrugations in it - also noticed when I removed it that it had been pinched at the airbag possibly causing an air leak post MAF.. In the next couple of weeks I'm also going to swap the K & N for a Cosworth filter, clean the MAF and remove the airbag resonator to try and clean up the intake route.

No longer and oily K & N filter as I’ve now fitted the Cosworth dry version - car already feels better with the MAF cleaned as well - the old filter was also filthy (think it’s been 2 years since last cleaned) so not helping things. Only bugger is I broke the engine cover taking it off so now running without!

There was a definite improvement when I went dirty OE to K & N, this time again there feels to have been an improvement between the dirty (2 years since the last clean I think) K & N and the Cosworth. Not sure if itís the filter or the fact itís clean thatís made the difference but Iím definitely happier not having an oiled filter now as the MAF again was looking very dirty. As I cleaned the MAF when doing the filter it may be that that has improved the running as Id developed a bit of a flat spot/judder when coming off or accelerating after a period of light throttle running.

Having a bit of a play with a spare grille has resulted in this - need to properly attach the mesh and paint the inside. Probably going to paint the chrome (it’s chrome paint) the same gunmetal as the roof rails. I did consider trying to wrap it carbon but don’t think it’ll Work as the edge will be exposed.
