Default Seibon hood owners! Help!

My particular hood is the CW style for a 2009 WRX, but all input would be appreciated.
First off I'm wondering if you have a Seibon CF hood, what did you do about the IC splitter and insulation blanket mounted to the stock hood? Also, did you have a shop install it or do it yourself?
I imagine if you didn't worry about putting the splitter on, you did it yourself....but I'm looking for any and all experience with them cause I'm getting ready to put mine on and am worried about air flow through the intercooler.
I've searched and searched but for some reason this is a very mute subject.
Thanks!

Finished the hood today, I'm waiting to see about the splitter. Could build one to mount to the intercooler.

I installed my own Seibon, drilled some holes in the under fiberglass side to mount the splitter and weatherstripping at the front. Did not put the insulation blanket on.

Did you install all 3 peices of the splitter? The metal top peice, the plastic and rubber lower parts? Was it an OEM style or a CW style?

I am 06 GD style so it is a one piece splitter and OE style. Not familiar with the 09 but I would think it would be somewhat similar

Thanks for the input. Mine is a 3 piece and I put the CW on so the vents that are on the hood made it so the fiberglass skeleton underneath is different than OE. I was going to do the same as you and drill the holes to mount it but there isn't any fiberglass where I need it. I imagine the OE hood you got was pretty much the same under so it wasn't a problem.
