Smile Cold Air Intake on Edelbrock Supercharger for extra whine

Hi guys,

I have a 2018 Subaru BRZ with an Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger, Remark muffler delete, and ST coilovers. I got installed a while back. I am loving the additional power coming from the car, but I am dying for a loud whine from the supercharger. People have recommended me to get a cold air intake to increase the whining noise. Can anyone recommend an intake that would be compatible with my supercharger? Also, does the supercharger allow for these aftermarket intakes to be installed? I have been eyeing the Perrin CAI for a while but I am unsure what to buy because I'm scared it won't fit my car. Hopefully, some of you more experienced BRZ/FRS owners can tell me. Please if you have any advice on how I can increase the whine in this car let me know.

Thank you for your guys' time!

I would suggest you post this in the Edelbrock thread but the lack of whine is a good thing.

I don't think anyone make an intake for the Edelbrock... It still won't whine it's just too quite, that's the way it is.... Stealth mod...

Cold Air Intake on Edelbrock Supercharger for extra whine

The new TVS blowers donít whine. Thereís no way to make them louder because they donít whine to begin with. The only SC for this car that whines is Sprintex.

The Edelbrock intake is a cold air intake. In fact, the stock intake is also a cold air intake. The blower in these kits just don't make much noise and that's a good thing. It's more efficient. Changing the intake will not add sound that isn't there to begin with.

That being said, I am looking into different intake options just because I find the Edelbrock intake to be poorly designed from a maintenance and usability perspective. 8 bolts and washers, multiple worm gear clamps, and and a bunch of finagling just to clean out my air filter. I drive a decent amount of gravel roads so it gets dusty pretty quick.
