Believe me, I'm not flaming at all. I just am wondering why someone would go through all the trouble to modify his hood (most likely hacking up his hood in the process) just to have a scoop that's not going to be all that benefical?
You have a N/A car, your underhood temperatures (especially in Alaska) are not going to be that significant anyway. If you're that
worried about performance and getting the best performance from your engine, get a CAI.
Now are the older Outbacks and Legacy's scoops actually flow-through, or are they blocked like Mustang hoods and just have black plastic in the "scoop?"
