K&N Air Intake System for Subaru WRX

The VA series 2015 Subaru WRX is quite a departure from the previous generation Subaru WRX. The Impreza name has been dropped completely in all markets and the WRX body has taken on a more distinguished look from the standard Subaru Impreza. Most significantly changed from the outgoing 2014 WRX is the all-new 2.0L FA20DIT direct injection boxer engine and twin-scroll turbocharger. The VA series 2015 Subaru WRX is the first WRX to move away from the EJ-series engine. Drivability of the WRX has been improved thanks to the twin-scroll turbo which helps peak torque numbers come on twice as soon and makes slightly more horsepower than the 2.5L EJ engine. Also new for the 2015 WRX is a standard 6-speed manual transmission previously only available to those who stepped up to the WRX STi. This combination of the new 2.0L FA series engine, and the six-speed manual transmission, provides the 2015 Subaru WRX owner with a much different driving experience than the car it replaces.
