Reviewed: AEM Cold Air Intake for the 2015 WRX.

Here we are after the first quarter of 2015, and one thing you will notice is more of an abundance of 2015 Subaru WRX’s out on the road. Subaru really had a win with the new 2015 design. And several of the new owners were prior WRX generation owners. That means that most of you who fit this category aren’t strangers to modifications.

AEM has provided the latest generation of the WRX with a stellar cold air intake system. Now this isn’t your standard run of the mill cold air intake system, you will most certainly discover the quality, and simplistic of the installation that makes this cold air intake kit a complete and noticeable first bolt on.

Once out of the box you will find instructions, stickers, all the fun items when purchasing an AEM product. Note that there is a MAF extension cable involved, and even the heat shield comes with weather stripping. Once you have your factory intake removed, it’s just a matter of installing the heatshield, routing the intake pipe, then putting the provided filkter in place. The factory intake snorkel will fit back in place and it will still provide cool air towards the intake.

So if you have a novice mechanical skill set, and some simple garage tools this intake should be an easy installation for you. This kit comes with instructions, all the hardware, even a few stickers with a license plate frame. You will definitely notice the increase induction sound for those of you who like to hear that turbo whistle. With that said you will also hear an increase in blow off valve noise. The throttle response will also grab your attention as you row through the gears.

Overall this is a highly recommended first bolt on for the 2015 WRX. Check out our review video below, and visit us at for more enhancements for the latest Subaru WRX.
