For years you've been asking GrimmSpeed for intakes, and for years they've been silently working to create a solution that sets itself apart from the rest. They examined and tested current offerings, and identified their shortcomings. They formed theories, and over months of testing designs they proved them. Combined with their advanced research and development program, they fully utilized their engineering resources to design and manufacture what they believe is the most comprehensive intake solution available for the 2008-2014 Subaru WRX and STI and the 2009-2013 Forester XT.


Based on their testing and research, design requirements for this intake became simple. The MAF sensor must be protected from the heat of the engine bay for more accurate readings. The filter must not be close enough to the ground such that water/hydrolocking are a concern. The MAF sensor must be placed relative to the filter and air straightener, similar to the OEM airbox, so that airflow readings are consistent and reliable. The intake tube must be no longer than necessary with minimum bend angle, to reduce restriction. The heatshield must provide sealing between the induction area and the hot engine bay to keep air intake temperatures low. The GrimmSpeed intake shown here achieves each of these requirements and more. What is accomplished is a true hybrid of traditional Cold Air Intakes and Short Ram Intakes, with all the advantages and none of the compromises.


This intake was designed with tuners in mind! The consistency of the airflow through the MAF sensor makes this intake very predictable and is as easy to tune as the stock airbox. While pro-tuning is always recommended, the Cobb SF OTS AccessPort Map provides a safe temporary alternative.

Grimm air intake

Awesome looking, sounds nice, easy to install. Highly recommend this product.

Michael,

Thank you for your 5 Star Review of the GrimmSpeed Cold Air Intake and the added pic! This intake has been developed and tested to provide the best performance possible! The included heat shield ensures the coolest air possible enters the filter! This setup is the perfect mix of short ram and performance of cold air intake!

Cold is better than hot

Easy installation, the box surrounding the filter offers a great form of sealant between the cold air flowing to the filter from the engine bay. Looks great, and offers a subtle noise increase to identify all that additional power to be made.

Kenneth,

The GrimmSpeed Cold Air Intake is the perfect upgrade to from the restrictive OEM air box! It looks great and provides plenty of unrestricted air flow which helps build HP! Thank you for the 5 Stars!

Looks good, Sounds good

This definitely looks the part. There are plenty of helpful videos (including one from Grimmspeed) on YouTube on how to make the setup go smooth, so installation was no problem. Looks great, has a small noise increase under higher RPMs. The only downside would be due to the cold air setup, checking the condition is not as quick and easy, but still doable.

Phylicia,

Thank you for the 5 Star Review! The GrimmSpeed Cold Air Intake really helps bring more fresh air into your Turbo. More air means better burn and more HP! GrimmSpeed did it right with this design, with months of research to give you one of the best intakes on the market.
