Default Hood Scoop Fitment Thread

I see a new thread almost daily from someone asking how to get an 04/05 scoop on an 02/03 hood, or a 04/05 scoop on an 06/07 hood. People also want the JDM STI scoops for the 02/03 but don't know where to get them. Hopefully this thread will solve all this.

The absolute fact is that the OEM hood scoops are not interchangeable between model years.

For reference I've listed below, the nicknames of model years in case you don't already know them:

BUGEYE = 02/03 Model Years
BLOBEYE = 04/05 Model Years
HAWKEYE = 06/07 Model Years

SPLITTERS

The splitter funnels air directly into the intercooler. In the stock splitter, air is moved through a single channel, directly into the IC with a shrowd surrounding the bottom of the splitter. Without the splitter, the hood scoop does not fit snuggly with the IC, allowing air to go around -- instead of through -- the TMIC.
Ex:


The rubber shroud that fits on the OEM splitter is part number 90817FE210 and is around $40. This can be used to make an ill fitting splitter a perfect fitting splitter. Other materials have been used such as rubber weather seal material from Home Depot.

The little plastic clips that hold the rubber shround to the OEM/STI splitter are part number 90826FA000 and are 80 cents each.

You will also see some splitters on eBay which are sheet metal splitters. They work with your factory unit and don't do much other than direct more airflow over the OEM intercooler and should NOT be thought of as a real splitter for a bigger intercooler.


BUGEYE 02/03: For the Bugeye there are 4 types of splitters.

Stock Splitter **fits under the OEM WRX scoop** -- 16" x 5 1/2" opening, single air channel, no pre-drilled IC spray nozzle hole. Heavier than the V.7, about the same weight as the APS splitter.
The stock splitter can be found in the OEM catalog here:
www.subarugenuineparts.com

JDM V.7 Splitter **fits under the JDM STI scoop** -- 17 7/8" x 5 3/4" opening, double air channel, one pre-drilled IC spray nozzle hole. Lightest of the 3 splitters.

APS Splitter **fits under the JDM STI scoop** -- 19" x 5 3/4" opening, double air channel, three pre-drilled IC spray nozzle holes. Heavier than the V.7, about the same weight as the stock splitter. Note: the APS splitter has a metal strip on each of 4 sides of the splitter opening (what holds the shrowd). The SpeedFactor TMIC was so big that the rear metal strip, or lip, just barely interfered with the intercooler. So, this morning I stopped by my local Meineke, and for $20 they ground down the interfering metal.

GTSpec Splitter **fits under the JDM STI scoop** -- The GTSpec splitter is designed to fit under the STI sized scoop and is to tall for the OEM WRX scoop.
The Zero/Sports splitter acan be found here:

The JDM V.7, GTSpec, and APS splitters are designed for the taller scoop such as the JDM STI scoop and will NOT fit under the BUGEYE WRX scoop because the scoop is not tall enough.

I am still in the process of finding where the APS and v.7 STI splitters can be purchased.



BLOBEYE 04/05: For the Blobeye there are 4 types of splitters.

Stock splitter **Fits under the OEM WRX scoop** -- The stock splitter will fit under both the OEM WRX and STI scoops but is designed for the OEM WRX intercooler.
The stock WRX splitter can be found in the OEM catalog here:
www.subarugenuineparts.com

STI splitter **Fits under the STI scoop** -- The STI splitter is designed to fit under the STI sized scoop and is to tall for the OEM WRX scoop.
The Blobeye STI splitter can be found here:
https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/p...roducts_id=740

Zero/Sports Splitter **Fits under the STI scoop** -- The STI splitter is designed to fit under the STI sized scoop and is to tall for the OEM WRX scoop.
The Zero/Sports splitter can be found here:
http://shop.edoperformance.com/zeros...rx-p-9201.html

APS Splitter **fits under the OEM WRX scoop** -- 19" x 5 3/4" opening, double air channel, three pre-drilled IC spray nozzle holes. Heavier than the V.7, about the same weight as the stock splitter. Note: the APS splitter has a metal strip on each of 4 sides of the splitter opening (what holds the shrowd). The SpeedFactor TMIC was so big that the rear metal strip, or lip, just barely interfered with the intercooler. So, this morning I stopped by my local Meineke, and for $20 they ground down the interfering metal.


HAWKEYE 06/07 : Both the WRX and STI have the exact same scoop. However, the WRX has a different splitter than the STI because the STI splitter was designed for the STI intercooler and the WRX splitter was designed for the WRX intercooler.

Stock splitter **Designed to fit the shape of the OEM WRX intercooler** -- The stock splitter will fit under both the OEM WRX and STI scoops
The stock WRX splitter can be found in the OEM catalog here:
www.subarugenuineparts.com

STI splitter **Designed to fit the shape of the OEM STI intercooler** -- The STI splitter will fit under both scoops as well.
The Hawkeye STI splitter can be found here:
https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/p...oducts_id=1008

Zero/Sports Splitter **Designed to fit the shape of the OEM STI intercooler** -- The Zero/Sports splitter will fit under both scoops as well.

Believe me, I completely agree. However, people ask about it every single day. So this is not an opinion thread regarding the topic. It's strictly to be used as a reference so when that daily "04 STI scoop on my bugeye" thread pops up, they can just come here.

when I ran my STi intercooler my wife hated the 04/05 STi scoop, so I purchased a v7 splitter which w/ some minor tweaking fit rather well under the oe 04/05 WRX scoop. The oe 04/05 WRX scoop is dimensionally very close to the v7 STi scoop - in fact the WRX (04/05) scoop is even slightly taller than the previous gen STi scoop

Iím actually looking into the 04-05 scoop on my 06 and I was wondering if anyone running the 06-07 Chargespeed hood scoop SKU CS975HD could share some info? Iíve found some pics of it from the outside, but Iím wondering how it looks on the inside? Especially fitment compared to stock, can you use the stock splitter, spray nozzle, hardware and so on? Also the mesh stuff they show in the scoop can be removed easily? Any hacking necessary?

Thanks!

Ok maybe a stupid question, but what splitter should be used on a bugeye with the 04/05 STI scoop? Will either of the JDM STI splitters work?

the v8 (04/05) scoop is much taller, as is the splitter- the v7 splitter wouldn't go to the top of the scoop and air would go right over the top

you'd want the 04/05 splitter w/ the 04/05 scoop

So the 04/05 splitter will fit on the 02/03 as long as the scoop is modeled after the 04/05?

Thanks for the info.

correct- of course the STi splitter/seal is larger to accommodate a larger intercooler, so it wouldn't work well w/ a smaller oe WRX intercooler

Absolutely not!! I want to do that REAL bad as well. I think the hawkeye scoop looks perfect but I have yet to find a place that has an 06/07 style scoop for the 04/05.

Zero/Sports 04/05 splitter LINK

GT SPEC 02/03 splitter LINK

The rubber shroud that fits on the OEM splitter is part number 90817FE210 and is around $40. This can be used to make an ill fitting splitter a perfect fitting splitter. Other materials have been used such as rubber weather seal material from Home Depot.

The little plastic clips that hold the rubber shround to the OEM/STI splitter are part number 90826FA000 and are 80 cents each.

The little plastic clips that hold the underhood fiberglass heat shield to the hood are part number 909130074 and are 80 cents each. You may need 1-3 of these as when fitting a new splitter you remove these clips and fold back the heat shield to remove/install a new splitter. If you are monkey fisted with removing these clips you can break them.

You will also see some splitters on eBay which are sheet metal splitters. They work with your factory unit and don't do much other than direct more airflow over the OEM intercooler and should not be thought of as a real splitter for a bigger intercooler.

It isn't noted in the information above, but most most splitters intended for the V7 STi should fit the Blobeye WRX scoop, although fitiment is not 100% perfect.

For example, I am running a 2004 WRX with a APS TMIC and APS Splitter designed for the V7 STi, the only fitiment issue is that the very back of the TMIC doesn't receive as much air from the splitter as it could. Otherwise, it fits and seals fine, under my WRX hoodscoop.

Some people were also asking about where I got the splitter, I got the splitter from the APS warehouse in Australia, when I was there on holiday 2 years ago.

Thanks for the info. I will add that to the original post.

Would you mind unquoting my original thread though? It makes this page much longer than it needs to be and adds a lot more scrolling.


Also, would you mind sharing where you got the APS splitter?

You should also add that Zero/Sports makes an alternative to the STi splitter.
