The C.A.R.B certified COBB Tuning SF Intake removes a pre-turbo restriction in the stock intake system. The SF Intake intake system utilizes several 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, a CFD-designed velocity stack leads to an unique air flow straightener grid designed to smooth the incoming air flow as it passes the Mass Air Flow sensor for precise readings. The intake utilizes a one piece design constructed from a high temperature plastic composite, saving weight and reducing heat transfer.
Increased Induction Sound
Enjoy the increased snarl from your engine and hear the turbo spool more clearly with the addition of the COBB Tuning SF Intake system. Turbocharger induction noise and bypass valve venting sound is much more audible using this intake system.
Easy to Install
The COBB Tuning SF Intake was designed to be easy to install without having to modify your car. Installation requires no cutting or trimming of any components and can be completed with simple hand tools. Simply remove the stock airbox and bolt the SF intake into place in just minutes. The filter comes Pre-Oiled ready to install.
All aftermarket intakes for 08+ Subarus require tuning, regardless of manufacturer, in order to ensure the MAF sensor reads properly and the engine operates within safe parameters. COBB Tuning has you covered with Off-The-Shelf Maps for the Accessport, making it as easy as install, flash and go!

The SF Airbox adds the benefits of a cold air intake to the outstanding performance of the SF Intake. The factory inlet directs cold air from the front grill to the SF Airbox, which encloses the SF Intake. Hot engine bay air that robs horsepower is prevented from entering the intake system to provide consistent intake performance. This unique design also separates rainwater from the intake air, eliminating the water ingestion issues that plague in-fender cold air intakes.
This SF Airbox Kit includes a New Subaru OEM Air Duct that provides fresh air from behind the grill directly into the airbox. This duct is REQUIRED for compatibility with the 2018 STI Type RA and 2019 STI. This intake airbox is constructed of 16 gauge aluminum, consisting of a one piece surround, directional lid, stainless steel hardware and all the necessary components for a seamless install with OEM quality fit and finish.
