i am thinking of getting the k&n typhoon or the cobb short ram. which is better. the reason i ask is because i will also purchase the cobb access port stage 2 at a later time.

It's like night and day ;)
I remember the first time I drove it after putting the Typhoon on I was literally cracking up at how much louder everything became.

Video doesn't do it justice, IMO.

You don't really hear any of the sucking sounds which are very loud in real life.

imo, the typhoon is much better then the cobb. its built better, and it comes with an air box, which really does cut down on intake temperatures. there is sooooo little difference between short ram and colt air intake temperatures. thats why i didnt waste my money on a cold air. im more then pleased with the k&n. that video is no where close to how it is in real life. cobb says you shouldnt use any intake but theirs for the ap, but they would say something like that. they just want you to buy more from them.

I had both and hands downt he cobb is a better choice. It emulates the airflow that of the stock intake which is recommended if you are going to have your car tuned.

I would get the cobb because they test there intake with stage 2 map it made for iam they are a great company that only work on subaru cars and would not make something that would mess up your car,iam running there intake on stage 2 and it feels great.but everyone diffrent.my .2

I'm using Cobb intake as well with my stage 2 with no problems whatsoever. As mentioned before, it diverts the flow of air just like a stock setup which is benefitial for the MAF readings. Its quality is just as equal with Typhoon, noise is probably the same. One good benefit the Typhoon has is the heatshield, which is no problem if you're handy where you can make your own or you can get the SPT heatshield (Which I may just do if I don't get a FMIC)
