*Having the scoop actually creates positive pressure in the engine bay. Which, you are correct, does limited flowers through the intercooler. This is why I put on a scoopless hood shortly after installing the FMIC.

You can petition moderators to change your name. I'd suggest making your name something a bit more general. This is my WRX, so I would of had to change my name multiple times.

You should try the torqued performance stage two I think it felt much smoother and ran even harder... Stage 1 tp with k&n intake ran almost as strong as stage 2 Cobb just didn't have the low rpm torque that I had with the catless downpipe
