Our intake system utilizes a stock size MAF housing that doesn't require any retuning. You can bolt this on and notice immediate performance gains! Our intake also utilizes a custom billet 5" velocity stack to help funnel as much air as quickly as possible through our intake. This combined with a huge K&N filter gives us the most filter surface area and flow possible. The filter is specifically placed to allow the use of the factory ram air duct. If you want to keep things looking stealthy under the hood we also have an airbox available as well (You can select this from the drop downs below). This helps to isolate the intake from the hot engine bay temps and provide the coldest and most direct intake charge. Backed by our manufacturer's warranty and the best customer service in the industry, you can buy this knowing the fit an finish will be unlike any other product on the market.
We've designed our ETS 2015+ WRX intake to work with the factory tune, but for maximum performance, we still recommend a pro tune.
Above is a log file showing the difference between the factory tune with stock intake and the factory tune with an ETS intake. You can see the difference is .5 AFR leaner, which is still a safe AFR.
We also have a great testimony from Junior Barrios (JR Tuned) referencing power gains from installing JUST our ETS intake system.
"This car was tuned with the stock airbox setup, then again with only the addition of an ETS intake.
Very basic pump gas car and as you see the gains from the intake are substantial. Car is also overall safer now since it takes less effort to make power.
The only alteration to tuning between the two graphs was boost control. I had to lower the wastegate duty cycle to bring the boost back down to where I tuned it with the stock intake. It was over boosting by almost 4psi, but that would be a given since it €™s now able to actually pull in the air easier."

Love the sound? Definitely a performance gain too! 🤪🤙🏼
What can I say?!
You step on the pedal and you can hear the blissful sound of the turbo spooling up. You let go of the gas pedal and you hear the bypass valve releasing air.
Most smiles per gallon I can ask for.
My son loves how it Sounds
This intake has been great so far. The sound from the intake is amazing. I have the ets intake paired with my grimmspeed turbo inlet and bypass valve and it sound GREAT. If you want some amazing sound, I would highly recommend this combo.
Car pulls harder after 4000 RPM. Sounds fantastic. Turbo really opens up with sounds that didn’t exist before. Exactly what I wanted.
Amazing intake, definitely recommend!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
i lost my air intake airbox when i was moving is there a way i can get new one or do i have to buy a new one?
We sell the intake airbox separately on our website HERE
Is the K&N RU-2800 a direct replacement for this filter?
Yup! A K&N RU-2800 is a direct replacement for our 2015+ WRX Intake. You can also use a K&N Recharge Kit to clean your current filter.
Is the air box included for the $295
No, when selecting the optional airbox it will add an additional $100 to the price for a total of $395 plus applicable shipping.
Hi, bought one of these and trying to get a filter wrap for it, what K&N or Filter Wears wrap will fit on this??
The K&N part number for the equivalent filter is RU-2800. They should make a filter wrap for RU-2800.
what should I clean the filter with?
We recommend the K&N Air filter cleaning kit.
Do you have to tune the car after installing?
Our intake system utilizes a stock size MAF housing that doesn't require any retuning. You can bolt this on and notice immediate performance gains!
Does this have a carb legal sticker for CA emissions?
Currently we do not have a carb legal sticker for CA. We're in the process of getting our products carb approved.
Currently running MaPerformance stage 1 ots map I was wondering if I have to switch to Cobb OTS map
Cobb doesn't offer an OTS map for our intake. You would either need to run a stock tune or go get a protune.
Will this intake work with your front mount set up? Or will some parts like heat shield etc not be able to be used
The complete intake will work with our Front mount intercooler kit.
do you ship to perth western australia how much would it be for the 2017 wrx ets cold air intake kit with box Plus shipping hammond park perth wa 6164 AUSTRALIA
Yes we do! If you put your address in the checkout area the website will quote shipping before you ever have to put in any payment info.
Hi What the total weight of the package including the Airbox since I need to calculate shipping charges
11 lbs boxed
If i wanted to run one of Cobbs ots tune would I need to run the stage 1 big sf tune?
We do not recommend running the Cobb OTS Map w/ our intake. We recommend talking to a Pro Tuner like Michael Adkins, JR Tuned, etc. If you need a tuner contact or recommendation, please email email@example.com
With the airbox, would this work with the Cobb stage 1 OTS tune? I can't seem to find the stage 1+ for this intake from cobb.
I'm currently running a Cobb Stage 1 tune on my 2015 WRX with an ETS intake and ETS airbox for the last year and a half and haven't had a single issue. When we designed the ETS 15+ WRX Intake we designed the MAF housing to be simliar in size to the factory housing, which allows the AFR to stay consistent with the factory intake. Our intake does lean the car around .5 AFR, but it's still within safe parameters. You can definetly maximize the performance of your vehicle by getting a custom tune. We do recommend monitoring your AFR, Knock and DAM as each car is different. A pro tune will always net more horsepower and ensure your vehicle is running properly.
What is the best Turbo Inlet replacement hose that is compatible with this intake? Will the Perrin work with trimming?
Our intake connects to the stock inlet piece that bolts to the turbo. An aftermarket inlet hose isn't needed as our intake would replace it.
Will this work fine with a 2017 STI? Or is this only for the WRX? I want a better intake without doing a tune right away. Thank you.
This only works on the WRX. The WRX and STI don't share the same engine. The STI intake requires a tune.
I need a filter replacement, i cannot find a part number anywhere?
hello I live in Vancouver not far from you can I stop by and purchase the intake kit for a 2019 wrx or do I have to order it online only
Feel free to swing by! You can also order online and select "will call" which speeds up the whole process. We will have it ready and up front for you when you arrive!
Does this fit a 2019 WRX?
Yes it does
Are there any plans to get it carb certified? I would imagine most intakes cannot be Carb certified since they require a tune, but since yours is safe without a tune I would imagine it would work. I think I speak for every WRX owner in California, that we would love an option besides Mishimoto's garbage.
Unfortunately, we have done what we can to get our parts CARB approved. Now it is simply a waiting game. We can sell catback's to CA, but that was about it.
Is this CARB legal?
Unfortunately they are not CARB approved yet. We can't ship this to California for that reason.
