#10 of 14 subaru legacy GT performance pack
Jul 11, 2007 (8:53 pm)
I have an 07 Legacy GT, and recently had the dealer install the performance pack consisting of new mufflers, air intake and heat shield. The extra power is great. The problem is the air intake makes a terrible grinding noise at moderate acceleration. The noise changes to a more normal sounding one at more heavy acceleration. It is really an awful awful noise. Is this normal? I don't really trust the dealer at this point to tell me the truth, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Check if anything is loose, perhaps have someone rev the engine slowly while you're under the hood, searching for the source of noise.
An intake kit often removes a silencer to increase power, so there is some trade-off. Grinding does not sound normal, though.

I'll check it out for you as my friend actually designed it. I may get it for my 05 LGT as well.

That would be great. It adds significant power but the noise is awful. I'm wondering if they installed the intake correctly.
