Is the legacy gt's intake box the same size as ours... I know the legacy gt filters are the same size.... Anyone know?
I want to get this http://www.jscspeed.com/lgt/intake/blitz_induction.htm but im not sure if it will fit.

Thanks guys!
I guess if you just want to look different then it would be OK, but the airflow will be much the same as the standard airbox with a aftermarket panel filter. Although it will now be feed from hot air from the engine (not good for HP) instead of from the standard cold air duct. The standard cold air ducting also produces positive presure in the airbox when the car is in motion. I myself have opened up the old resonator port (blocked off in the 08 WRX) and connected a secondary air duct pipe to the front of the car for more cold air.

I cut a hole and opened up that duct as well but its just open on the bottom so it can get some extra cold air from the wheel well.
