The ST is begging for some kind of shaker hood intake, that engine moves like a belly dancer.

Live, and in color.

My "mechanic" consulting with me over preassembly


Preassembly done


Honkin' big air filter! Much larger than the AEM unit I had on my '03WRX!


Hoping to install on Tuesday!

I like it, thinking about getting the Steeda one myself. Can wait to see the install pics.

Hi Bertozx3,

This question tends to pop up a lot, so a search may have yielded a faster answer, but that being said, no, installing an after market air intake will not void your warranty. The dealership/repair shop would have to prove that a failure or repair was caused by the aftermarket part in order to void the warranty, which is frankly quite difficult to do, especially for an air intake. It would have had to have been installed incorrectly and caused obvious damage for it to potentially be an issue. There are laws in place protecting such things, though frankly, don't care to take my own advice. If you are ok receiving ad-lib advice, then that's what I can offer

Hey thanks for the advice! But I decided to wait after I get 3k on my odometer before I start to do any mods. But I will keep in mind for this summer as a mod for when the weather is hot.

After tuning my truck f150 ecoboost with sct and afe stage 2 intake...really looking forward to similar mods on my st. Tune will give me yhe power and the intake will give sound. I did back to backs on my intake for my truck and didnt gain a thing. So my thoughts on intakes in very skeptical of any gains.
