Installing the AEM Intake System 21-477C

On April 28th, 2011 our sales staff had their first real opportunity to get acquainted with MOTO 1, WRX project car. We spent a bit of time looking over the car, but the main objective was to install the 21-477C intake system from AEM.

The install went off without a hitch. Most of the guys have already installed one intake or another on a vehicle already, so it wasn’t anything particularly difficult. But it was nice for everyone to see how the box is packed, and what is included in the kit.

The parts themselves all fit perfectly, and the silver finish on the piping was top notch. Every piece required to install the kit was included or could be re-used from the original parts. A nice touch was the rubber damper piece that you install around the hole in the fender wall so the intake tube doesn’t hit bare metal. Although once the mounting tabs are bolted down it is unlikely that the tube would ever hit the fender wall, but it’s nice to know that it’s there just in case.
