Default Hood scoop swap 2nd Gen. with 1st gen.

I'm woundering if the scoops on the 1st and 2nd generation Imprezas can be swapped? I've looked at them and they seem to have the same shape on the hood. The only difference is the scoop shape & bracing in the scoop.

If they can be swapped, the 1st gen. Impreza owners can put the 2nd gen. STi scoop on the 1st gen. Impreza and get more air into the IC/engine bay.

If anyone has both cars, can you do the swap and report back? The STi scoop may help the 1st gen Imprezas!

Thanks!
FuJi

from what I have read they are not interchangeable. IIRC the older scoop is wider than the newer scoop.

yeah...they do not fit each other....the GC8 scoops are actually taller than the GDA/B scoop...they already resemble the STi scoop for the GDA/B.....as for scoops for the GC8, there are a few others out there...ie. cusco "monster" scoop, symms scoop, i think c-west also has a scoop...
