Intake - 2015-2019 Outback 2.5i - Wrinkle Black
- Calculated at Checkout
The factory intake tube connects the airbox and mass airflow sensor to the throttle body, and in the case of the 3.6R that is achieved with a thermoplastic rotomolded tube that, over time, has a potential to develop cracks in its flexible bellows. A crack in that part results in rough engine idle with compromised driveability and an instant check engine light, not to mention an intake system that is directly ingesting underhood dirt and grime. Nobody wants that. And thermoplastics are always in a state of entropy, especially so in high temperature environments like an engine bay.
The upgrade is here: our system replaces that entire themoplastic intake and flow disrupting silencer assembly with a mandrel bent stainless tube and five layer reinforced high temp silicone couplers. The factory breather tube connection is retained and the breather fitting is made of billet stainless steel and TIG welded in place. The result is a replacement part that has improved function and form.
Our classic wrinkle red and wrinkle black powdercoating options are back for this new product line. The powdercoat provides enough texture to give a good match for most other red powdercoated parts on the market as well as having the ability to be easily wiped down and kept clean. Looking for a custom color? Just ask for an unfinished brushed stainless option in the notes of your order and you can customize the part in the finish of your choice.
Don't let the time honored tradition of a cracked factory intake tube leave you stranded - upgrade before that happens and save yourself a tow, or an even bigger headache in the backcountry.
