The COBB Tuning SF Intake
The COBB Tuning SF Intake takes advantage of the custom design and maintains an optimal flow and net which is the ideal performance while remaining unedited from the factory velocity stack. The custom conical cloth filter feeds filtered air straight to the engine, while also maintaining an optimal intake velocity and minimizes the turbulence found with many aftermarket intake systems. This COBB Tuning SF Intake system is compatible with Stage 1 and Stage 2 off the shelf mapping provided for their Access PORT ecu tuning device.
This system utilizes many unique features in an effort to maintain optimal flow for performance while minimizing turbulence that can cause engine management problems. From a custom conical cloth air-filter element, COBB uses a CFD-designed velocity stack leading to an unique air flow straightener grid. This straightener grid is specifically designed to smooth the incoming air flow as it passes the Mass Air Flow sensor for precise readings. This eliminates the “dead spots” experienced by other aftermarket intakes due to turbulence. NO other aftermarket Subaru intake system utilizes these critical design elements.
In order to provide a system that looks as good on the outside as the technical advancements happening on the inside, COBB utilizes a one piece design constructed from a high temperature plastic composite. Not only does this save weight compared to the previous metal design, the plastic composite material offers much better heat rejection properties that help keep intake air temperatures cooler. In contrast, intake systems constructed using metal castings or piping can actually retain underhood heat and in turn heat the incoming air.
