Default scoop delete

Was bored so I took my scoop off & made this little alum block off plate last night, took about an hr total, im using it as a template to make a carbon piece next

Right now, there is alum bolts welded to the bottom side, using them as studs to mount this, super clean for a quicky mod, im happy, next is to block off the dumb vent/shroud in front that robbing my radiator im sure of being cooled down as well, def a dumb idea from vis to put it there on a subaru, honda or evo would have been fine w it there

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's where you want that vent. It lets the hot air right out the top, instead of trying to dump it underneath the car (and pressurizing the underside, reducing downforce). Granted, I'd like to have it much much closer to the radiator exit, but still.

Definitely a dumb idea with the scoop too, but by itself it should help.

No problem ill correct you here, when you have a FMIC the hoodscoop actually balances out airflow going in through the hoodscoop and through the FMIC, so the FMIC and motor doesnt get as much circulation.. When you block that hole off when running a FMIC, tests have proven that the FMIC/radiator gets better flow and so does the engine bay because its not being balanced out by the hoodscoop ramming air down into the engine bay too, now t only comes from the front and has to leave under and around to the back.. The "pressurizing" you're talking about wouldnt affect you at speeds a STI can go. The better flow you get through the FMIC is worth it. Heres a couple pics of mine that Kenny/kelly(kb'izzle) from Area P/Alliance Fabrication did for me, the studs that are welded on are very flush and line up great, not to mention it looks super flush on top. On KB'izzle's car he has a bit of insulation around the edge of his if you look very closely whereas mine doesnt. The bolts on the bottom are still a bit long but thats an easy fix.

BTW i just got done driving in the rain and didnt wipe it off at all so yeah i know its wet and dirty, but just wanted to give you guys an idea of how clean it looks for people that want to delete their hoodscoop that have FMIC's. also remember if you got this painted it would look MUCH nicer, the coat on top is just like a dull black sealant/paint stuff great explaination i know.. Also need to chop the studs a bit shorter under the hood they stick down a bit too much, but thats an easy fix. Other than that looks great! Plus i love having a fully clear view ahead of me i forgot what that was like..
Id recommend this to anyone who has a FMIC, tests have proven tht more airflow goes through the front of the car and through the FMIC/raadiator/ instead of being balanced out by the hoodscoop, causing it to have alot less airflow then if you were to block the scoop off when running a FMIC.

Ok its blocked off and I understand the theory behind what your saying and it makes sense. My question is as follows: Does deleting the scoop but having wire mesh or something benefit you? I mean instead of it being completley blocked like yours you would be letting out some heat and still not forcing it in there like a scoop.
