With 22 years of documented research and development in the forced induction field, AMS Performance has proven itself as the powerhouse in the automotive aftermarket. Our award winning performance systems are what all others are measured by.
The AMS Performance 2022+ Subaru WRX Air Intake is simply the best engineered and best performing air intake available for your turbocharged FA24 engine equipped Subaru WRX. The AMS WRX Air Intake offers a much larger full 3″ intake piping size over the OEM intake system, providing a significant improvement in air flow and up to a 25 WHP gain over the stock intake! The optional enlarged duct and airbox keeps out the heat and prevents hot air from entering the engine, ensuring consistent performance even in high temperature conditions. The 6061 billet aluminum MAF housing allows for within spec air/fuel ratios by way of its CAD designed geometry, while the rechargeable dry media filter makes cleaning easy. Our custom shaped 4-ply silicone is designed for smooth air delivery, with a matched interior diameter to the 3″ mandrel bent aluminum intake piping, minimizing any turbulence or disruption in air flow. Best of all, no ECU calibration is required for install. Upgrading your VB WRX intake has never been easier with the AMS Performance 2022+ Subaru WRX Air Intake, allowing you to experience the ultimate in performance no-hassle installation. With the AMS Performance 2022+ Subaru WRX Air Intake, you’ll enjoy improved performance and a deeper, more aggressive sound – all with the peace of mind that comes with a high quality, exceptionally well engineered performance part.
AMS Performance is an engineering company first. We have built our decades long reputation as a leading motorsports team and performance product manufacturer by creating the highest performing parts through a focused engineering approach to design. The focused design of the AMS Performance 2022+ Subaru WRX Air Intake is what makes it one of the highest power producing FA24 intake systems on the market. Our AMS Snailworks Engineering Team knows that excessive under hood temps can be a huge power robber, which is why they designed the optional airbox and duct upgrade to keep out blistering engine bay heat, ensuring that your engine is receiving the coldest air possible. They then improved airflow to the turbocharger by enlarging and perfectly matching the inner diameter of each section for reduced air turbulence and restriction, all of which translates into more horsepower and torque.
When it comes to making power, bigger is better. One of our Snailworks Engineering Team’s main objectives was to not be constrained by the small OEM duct design that feeds air to the airbox. To accomplish this, The optional AMS airbox and duct have been enlarged significantly compared to their stock counterparts for improved airflow in from the front grille. In fact, the connection between the duct and airbox has been enlarged by over 149%! This adds an improved ram-air effect, resulting in lower intake air temperatures entering the engine.
The turbo inlet silicone couplers that feed air into the WRX’s turbo need to deliver that air as smoothly as possible to achieve the best performance. Our AMS Snailworks Engineering Team designed each silicone connection to seamlessly transition the cold air into the next section, reducing restriction and allowing the turbos to breath easier. To take the design even further they added a factory-style locating fixture into the construction of the silicone to ensure that the AMS Performance 2022+ Subaru WRX Air Intake is the easiest intake to install on the market. With this locating feature added, you’ll instantly know the exact piping orientation needed to make installation on the compressor cover a snap!
The OEM manufacturer spends a lot of time reducing turbo noise and airflow at the expense of horsepower. By allowing the turbo to ingest all the cold air it needs, the AMS Performance 2022+ Subaru WRX Air Intake boosts power capability significantly. With our billet MAF housing, full 3″ intake piping, and high performance dry media filter, we’re opening up the intake tract drastically for improved airflow to the engine. The optional AMS airbox and duct gather cold air from the front grille and pipe it directly to the air filter, resulting in lower intake air temperatures entering the engine.
An organically shaped duct and intake pipe allow for not only for perfect fitment, but allow for reduced pre-turbo airflow restriction. Featuring gradual bend radii and pipe size transitions, air flows unimpeded all the way to the turbo compressor inlet. To quantify this, our AMS Snailworks Engineers ran dyno tests to determine the horsepower improvements seen at the wheels for both “with Stage 1 ECU calibration”, and “out-of-the-box” configurations. For our first test we performed a back to back test of the stock intake compared to our AMS WRX Air intake, with no changes to the factory ECU, resulting in a 15 WHP improvement over stock! Our second test showed an even more impressive 25 WHP improvement when comparing the stock intake and AMS Air Intake when both are flashed with a simple Cobb Stage 1 OTS Map for improved efficiency. Torque numbers are also increased throughout the entire RPM range, improving low RPM drivability and available power. The numbers don’t lie, the AMS Performance VB WRX Air Intake is hard to beat!
