Default modifying hoodscoop for intercooler

I am buying a new TMIC for a 2012 WRX. I understand that there would need to be some modification done to the stock hoodscoop to accomodate the larger TMIC. I was wondering what options I had with regards to the hoodscoop. Thanks in advance.

You need to tell us which intercooler your looking at getting, some come with the parts, some don't

Perrin fits with no modifications.

are you sure? I understand it fits, but the air coming in through the hoodscoop will only be hitting the area equivalent to the OEM intercooler, which is tiny.

The Perrin is the same basic size as the OEM intercooler, it is simply a different design and does not have plastic endtanks.

Some larger TMIC, like the Process West, include a different hood scoop splitter to address the issue your worried about ... but the Perrin does not need one.

Correct. The top of the Perrin is very similar in size to stock. There will be a fraction of an inch on either end that doesn't get air from the scoop, but it's very minimal. Here is a photos of the IPR (Perrin clone) vs. the stock TMIC.
