Thx for all the kind words. here's the finished mock up with my accusump. just need to paint the trunk and she's done.

That is absolutely insane! If I saw that cruising down the street I'd flag you down and ask to have my picture taken with it.

Also, what are those gauges that you've mounted in front of your gauge cluster?

So here is the hood vent I made a while back when I switched to a FMIC...

Well I don't think a Subaru looks right without a hood scoop on it so I'm making a few changes to keep the hood scoop but use it as a vent

Here's a sneak peak...




Here's the vent I had before just incase anybody is curious...

I don't think that setup will work. The front opening of the hood scoop needs to be blocked off and you should make a vent behind the hood scoop (facing windshield). Just my opinion to make it functional.

+2, but I don't think you need to block off the front of it, just open up the rear of it.

And now you get to see the finished product

Here is the finished prodict to utilize the front opening to keep the stock look of the hood scoop but with the Vent I made under it and the homemade vent in the back of it to let the air flow through and out.

With the way the vent is shaped it in theory cant go in the hood in any way, shape, or form, and will continute to flow out. this also protects against water going into the vent which everybody alwasy is concerned about...





Will add photos in a bit when photobucket stops acting up!

thx guys. i would gladly stop and take pics.

Also the vent is something i was planning on doing with my track hood. it's a great idea, but i've read that blocking it off completely works best and ducting the sides of the rad so all the air goes into it and not around it....

Yeah a TMIC wouldnt work well at all haha...

So far the vent without the scoop worked best and I did see a decrease in temp all around. String tested the Hood sccop/Vent and it works as it should just havent gotten any #'s on a log yet...

Also Im working on an idea to seal the FMIC to the Radiator and the Radiator to the car to maximize the airflow throught them

A little project I'm working on. Custom plate delete for the front of my car. Didn't really want to pay ~$50 for a little piece of metal. Currently it is designed as 10 GA steel. This is a prototype for fitment purposes. Just sent it down to the laser, hopefully have it some time this week.

Final design will most likely be 6063 or 5052 Aluminum, not sure on thickness yet. Whichever we have on hand.
Edit: Aluminum for sure, as the steel part will weigh over a half a pound.

I'd say it's unique, as it's my name (in the Subaru font). Custom, hell I designed the thing

Just got it back from the laser. Just have to file off the burrs, primer, and spray it. Haven't got to test fit it yet.

I could, we have a powder line here that we run black on every now and then. This is just a prototype, as it's out of steel and weighs a half a pound. If I like the way it looks I'll make it out of aluminum and powder it black.
