The Subaru Impreza share its platform with several Subaru sub-models including the WRX, WRX STi, and the compact crossover SUV known as the Subaru Forester. The 2014 Subaru Forester combines the versatility of a small crossover SUV with the handling and fuel efficiency of a compact car. Top of the line 2014 Subaru Forester XT models received a sporty new 2.0-liter turbo charged and intercooled direct injection FA20 engine also used in the VA series 2015 Subaru WRX. The 2014 Subaru Forester XT 2.0L turbo engine is mated to a lineartronic CVT transmission with paddle shifters for a fun-to-drive crossover SUV.
AEM has a solid reputation for making Subaru cold air intake systems and the AEM cold air intake for the VA series Subaru WRX 2.0L turbo FA20 models was shown to make impressive power gains. Borrowing from the experience gained developing a 2015 Subaru WRX intake system, AEM has applied those insights to creating a 2014 Subaru Forester XT 2.0L turbo air intake 21-742C. Dyno testing shows that the AEM 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0 air intake produced an amazing estimated 23 horsepower maximum increase at the wheels of an otherwise stock Forester. All of the design features of the AEM performance 2014 Subaru Forester XT Premium & Touring 2.0L Turbo air intake system were tuned to improve horsepower and torque delivery across the entire RPM range, making it a power increase that can be used even during average driving situations.
At AEM Induction Systems our engineers design our intake systems as a fully integrated component of the vehicle. Improved horsepower is only part of the intake development equation. The 21-742C AEM intake system utilizes a mandrel bent aluminum air intake tube powder coated in a charcoal gray color to place the AEM Dryflow air filter toward the front of the engine compartment. With the help of the powder coated application specific heat shield, the AEM 2014 Subaru Forester XT 2.0L turbo air intake is able to make use of the cool dense air coming from the stock cold air inlet. This AEM air intake system comes equipped with a non-oiled AEM Dryflow air filter 21-202DK which delivers high airflow, excellent filtration, and exceptional engine protection. AEM Dryflow air filters are washable, reusable, free of air filter oil, and are backed by a lifetime limited warranty.

Ram owners know that the 6.7L Cummins is a stump-pulling powerhouse, but there’s always more power to be had under the hood. The new AIRAID Jr. System for 2013-2015 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks with the 6.7L targets the most restrictive portions of the factory intake system: the paper filter element and the intake tube.
The new Ram AIRAID Jr. system combines a premium Direct-Fit Replacement Filter and an AIRAID Modular Intake Tube to provide a boost in pulling power and fuel economy all at the same time. The factory intake tube is corrugated and filled with baffles, all of which hurts airflow. The AIRAID Jr. systems help straighten and improve airflow to the engine, which provides better throttle response and additional horsepower. Modular Intake Tubes are constructed of cross-linked high-density polyethylene for strength and resistance to heat transfer. MIT tubes are included in AIRAID Jr. systems but are also available as a stand-alone upgrade.
The AIRAID Jr. kits include a premium AIRAID Direct Replacement Filter that drops right into the factory airbox. The AIRAID filter further optimizes airflow to the engine without sacrificing filtration. Available with traditional oiled or SynthaMax dry filter media, AIRAID Direct Replacement Filters are washable, reusable, and backed by the company’s exclusive “No Hassle” warranty. Retaining the factory airbox also retains the factory’s Active Air system, which helps protect the air intake during inclement weather and is also considered part of the factory emissions equipment.

The solenoid coil itself from the factory-fitted valve is great- the ECU opens it faster than any pneumatic valve so why replace it? The weak point however, is the valve mechanism itself. GFB’s DV+ solves this problem by replacing the valve parts with an anodised billet aluminium housing, fitted with a brass piston machined to exacting tolerances.
The end result is sharper throttle response, lightning-fast valve actuation, and it will hold as much boost as you can throw at it. Read all about the DV+ story below. Other manufacturers’ products involve replacing the entire system with a traditional pneumatic valve. This approach requires long vacuum hose runs, additional parts for tapping into the intake manifold vacuum, plus a different solenoid valve to actuate the pneumatic valve, or a ballast resistor to plug into the OE wiring loom. All these additional items result in a product that is slower, less responsive, more expensive and takes much longer to install.
GFB’s DV+ solution on the other hand is more responsive, less expensive, easier to install, and doesn’t cause compressor surge/ turbo flutter. Oh, and it doesn’t require different springs or frequent re-builds either.

Bully Dog custom tuning support now available for GT device owners!
What is the difference between a Custom Tune and Bully Dog’s Pre-Loaded Tunes?
Bully Dog’s pre-loaded tunes are designed for stock or lightly modified vehicles with modifications such as cold air kits, exhaust systems, or gear ratio changes. Unfortunately, as you build your vehicle with more complex modifications such as larger turbos, bigger injectors etc; our pre-loaded tunes are simply not designed to work with these heavier modifications and a “custom tune” is required.
Custom Tunes are created by one of Bully Dog / SCT’s custom tuning dealers and are specifically designed for your vehicle and its modifications. Our Custom Tuning dealers have complete control of your vehicles PCM using our Derive Advantage Custom Tuning software and will optimize your vehicles performance for simple add-ons such as cold air kits or for high horsepower modifications such as superchargers, turbo kits and even larger injectors.
How do I get custom tunes for my Bully Dog GT device?
Getting a custom tune for your custom ride is easy. Simply activate your GT device for custom tuning by visiting bullydog.com/customtuning and locate a custom tuning dealer near you to discuss purchasing custom tunes. Not sure how to find a custom tuning dealer near you? Visit our dealer locator at bullydog.com/dealer_locator.php

Car alignment is absolutely crucial when modifying your car. Alignment can effect every aspect of your driving experience, from straight line stability, under steer, over steer, acceleration, braking and tire wear. Although stock components allow slight alignments from the stock suspension settings, they often are not able to properly align the car after the suspension has been modified. From the factory, most cars are set to have under steer and for optimum tire wear at stock height; under steer is often undesired from a performance standpoint and almost all performance driven applications are lowered.
Megan Racing Inc. has developed reinforced and adjustable control arms to accommodate the needs of the aggressive and performance oriented tuner. Being constructed of a Lightweight Steel-Alloy which is able to withstand the stresses of extreme competition, these arms are powder coated with a 3-Stage process to ensure durability and protection against the elements.

This system utilizes several unique features in an effort to maintain optimal flow for performance while minimizing turbulence that can cause engine management problems. From a custom conical cloth air-filter element, we use a CFD-designed velocity stack leading to an unique air flow straightener grid. This straightener grid is specifically designed to smooth the incoming air flow as it passes the Mass Air Flow sensor for precise readings. This eliminates the “dead spots” experienced by other aftermarket intakes due to turbulence. No other aftermarket Subaru intake system utilizes these critical design elements.
In order to provide a system that looks as good on the outside as the technical advancements happening on the inside, we utilize a one piece design constructed from a high temperature plastic composite. Not only does this save weight compared to the previous metal design, the plastic composite material offers much better heat rejection properties that help keep intake air temperatures cooler. In contrast, intake systems constructed using metal castings or piping can actually retain underhood heat and in turn heat the incoming air.
The SF Air Box adds the benefits of a cold air intake to the outstanding performance of the SF Intake. The factory inlet directs cold air from the front grill to the SF Air, which encloses the SF intake. Hot engine bay air that robs horsepower is prevented from entering the intake system. This unique design also separates rainwater from the intake air, eliminating the water ingestion issues that plague in-fender cold air intakes.
Calibrations – All aftermarket intakes for 08+ Subarus require tuning in order to ensure the MAF sensor reads properly and the engine operates within safe parameters. COBB Tuning has you covered with Off-The-Shelf Maps for the Accessport, making it as easy as install, flash and go! Head over to the Subaru Accessport Map Database to view the full selection of SF Intake Maps for your vehicle.
