Default 06 sti carbon hood...install questions

I purchased as CF hood from Carbon Creations. And it didn't come with any instructions or holes drilled. My dumb a$$ didn't take any pictures of the OEM hood before I took everything off.

So, I'm trying to find out how to install the scoop, splitter, washer nozzles and weather stripping. Could anyone that is running a CF hood take some pictures of everything under there, especially the splitter and scoop. Also, If you have any tips on the install it would be much appreciated. Thanks!


*edit*
Any is anyone having trouble running hood dampers with these? I took them off because the drivers side was sitting high.

I'm running a seibon hood on mine and it didn't have any holes either. So I'm not using any of the rubber seals.
I did reuse the splitter by flipping the hood upside down and centering it. Use a 1/8th drill bit for pilot holes and attach using a handful of small screws.

There was another thread recently where someone was experiencing the same issue.

Just to ahead and sell it. You don't need or want it anyways.

You will get alot of flaming for the cf hood, people say the stock aluminum hood is actually lighter.

My gc had a steel hood(unless it's jdm wrx) and the cars' black so my carbon hood is much lighter than my steel one was... But my seibon came with the sprayer nozzle holes drilled and vents/scoop all installed. But no splitter bc it's for a gc :-(

Not every mod has to be for performance. I liked the cf look so I bought it. Thats it. Im sure every thread in this section about headlights, wings, and body kits all revolve around making the car faster...it came with a sticker..if I put that on I get like +5hp right!?!

All I'm looking for is how people with CF hoods mounted all of the "stuff" on the under side, and maybe a couple pictures so I dont fubar this thing up. Thanks in advance!

You don't.

Splitter, scoop, that's it.

I never understood why people spend money on warped CF hoods to replace the perfect, light weight factory hood.

No help to offer installing the splitter, sorry, but I can say this if you do get it installed you should do a write up because this question is asked frequently. Most people with CF hoods have them for looks and are running a front mount intercooler.

amnvince88, I'll post up pictures of how I have my splitter mounted this evening. Like I mentioned earlier, it's really as simple as centering the splitter and drilling a few pilot holes, followed up by some small screws.

As for all you out there beating on the idea of a carbon hood, I replaced mine because it was damaged. Seeing as I couldn't find a PSM hood near me, I opted for the CF hood as it was roughly $600 cheaper than buying a new OEM hood and having it painted.

Thanks for the clear picture. The CF doesn't have clips like the aluminum hood. So, I got some fiberglass epoxy and new drill bits.

First i drilled the pilot holes in the hood from the top down
Then I laid a bead of the epoxy and placed the scoop
Took a break and drank a couple beers with the epoxy cured
I started drilling the pilot holes in the scoop from the inside (under hood) out.
Then I stepped the bit size up and re-drilled the holes to match the bolts i got
placed the bolts and called it a night. I'll be mounting the splitter in a couple days.
