It wasn't online as such. He is a supplier heavily involved with the local 86 guys here in Melbourne. Looks like his price has gone up a little. LINK

Most intakes will soak in more hot air unless its a CAI like FA20 and Perrins and I still personally would rather use a duct since as the OEM air box is already really well designed. The FA20 tubing is metal and will heat up much easier and the Perrin CAI is just too expensive for a complete system (Silicone tube & CAI itself ).Improving the OEM design with some slight modifications is way better IMO. Air filters are already the best mod you can do for performance for how much it is and making it even better with a duct/silicone tubing will just make it even better.
Do you think combine the big throttle body will get further better

result or will be redundant?

(ex. Cusco or Revolution big throttle body + HKS duct+ TRD intake)

Thanks.

The throttle body is already pretty large compared to other cars Subaru has. Lots of vendors have said that it wouldnt be worth it but if you got the money to do it why not.

They do give gains but just dont expect a ton.

Throttle body would give you quicker throttle response but no extra power. A better option would be an improved inlet manifold.
