Welcome to the forums mate!

Good to see another Daniel, with a similar car to mine! haha!

An exhaust upgrade is always a good move...does make it sound nicer! Video of my car can be seen in one of the threads... can't remember which one... think its the XForce System one.. Mine is only the 2.0R though, so yours being a 2.5, will have more depth!

How did you do your CAI mod? Did you have to remove anything and how did you do it?
Below car has been gone for quite some time now... blew bottom end bearing and dealership screwed me! Now driving 2008 WRX with ~65k kms on the clock. Only has cat back exhaust and tune by KiDo at the moment! More to come... but slowly!

Purchased recently (12/11/2013), already with: Stage 2 Pedders lowered springs, rear Whiteline sway bar, Advan Racing TCII 18x8 wheels, k&N pod filter, custom 3" exhaust system from turbo back with Magnaflow mufflers. ECUTEK tune of some sort (hopefully soon to be fixed)..... now FIXED!! Now KiDo Tuned!
Added: HID kit, EZ lip equivalents to the front and sides, and various LED treatments, oem boot spoiler, [LGT WRC] plates, GFB Respons BOV for extra Pssscchhh! --> Gone... I couldn't afford it's heart transplant... but keep a look out, as it will come back on sale soon!

I actually did that mod this morning so I havent really tested it.
Initially after having the car running for 5 minutes after I done it I didnt notice any change in "induction sound" even with my ear down as close to the box as possible
I then took it for a quick 10 minute drive honestly couldnt tell that I had done anything. Im certain tho the extra air flow is probably beneficial for the car but not enough to consider it a performance upgrade.

A hi flow filter will probably make a difference Ill look into getting one I think

Mine is here:

Yeah I already fitted a K&N panel so hopefully I get the cool induction noise! :D

There is a thread in the How to Section which shows you how to remove the resonator. I cant be sure but its probably very similar to my car. U should be able to figure it out using the info on that thread !

UPDATE: On removal of resonator
After taking the lib for a long drive last night I noticed that the car is running slightly cooler than normal

This is a good thing the temp gauge is slightly below where it normally sits.

Ok just made some new purchases I've got a set of interior LEDs coming from Leo aka hks180 will post a pic when I get them
And also should have a k&n panel filter by next week
Hopefully that will give me some induction noise and a deeper exhaust note.

Is the damage just on the door, or is there damage to the quarter panel as well? Hard to tell.
