Default please tell me i can use my hood scoop

ok, i just bought a MY00 2.5RS and notice the large hood scoop in the center. can anyone tell me if someone makes a Ram Air System for this model, like the ram air intake on the new pontiac firebirds. i see the air filter is located right underneath the large-ass hood scoop, so i'm guessing there is one around. can anyone help?

you can place a conical filter below the hood scoop but you (nor the firebird) are going to get any real "ram-air" effect that will pressuize the manifold to a discernable point. your best bet is to get a cold air intake. the best designs that i have seen are those that use an inline filter versus the standard conical ones. that way you are able to draw air a bit easier from behind the fender where the intake is plumbed from, stock.

what would be really nice is if iceman made an intake for pre-WRX imprezas. they have the best design by far, hands down. sorry to burst your f-body ram air dreams.

People have done it, but water is your enemy. I don't know if anyone officially sells any except for that one pretty expensive blue metal thingamabob. I'm sure someone will know who I'm talking about. If you want to get really simple, you can just put a cone filter on the throttlebody.
