I figured 2.5L was the right one. I dont see how interior and exterior modification has to do with a splitter? The splitter is inside the engine bay not the interior or exterior. So why are ya mad?? I did post in the right forum and it was moved to a wrong one

I would like to know how a hood scoop splitter for the tmic is considered interior and exterior modification.....just wondering why you'd get mad at ME for posting my thread in the CORRECT forum!?
then go out of your way to move it to the WRONG forum.
moving this thread here is like me posting how to install sti seats in an "engine modification" forum. Ovfkabajid

Also- you said prosport gauges suck and blow sending units every 5k miles...
Then why'd you post that prosport is one of the top brands on the market in your FAQ write up 2 paragraphs from the top?
I drive 15-17k miles a year, so go ahead and blow sending units every 5k miles, with the prosport 1 year warranty ill get 3 new ones this next year! Woot!

I just got prosport because your thread said it was good sir..but I guess not. Or are they? Make up your mind & stop calling me out everywhere for EVERY LITTLE THING you see wrong, then when i do the opposite thats wrong too. and treating me like im an ******* or youre "better" than me/everyone. Youre not.
every time you seem to tell me something or act smart youre wrong, contradicting yourself, or it's just a total mistake.

Two times we've talked: your thread says prosport is a great brand. I get them and then I PM you on an install ? And you say prosport sucks. JOKE.
#2- here. You get mad at me saying a tmic splitter is interior/exterior modification
Both times getting all cranky and treatin me like IM THE DUMBASS.
ha. ha. ha.

----Just a little "sorry man I made a mistake ill move it back" would be nice or sorry I should edit my FAQ and take off prosport being good brand after further research

But you can't. Nobodies perfect and neither are you sir. You've probably done this to other people too there just "afraid" to stand up for themselves at all because your a mod. Just like people will say I'm a jerk for standing up for myself for some reason. Just don't understand why every time I say something you got to do that, I've never met you and never had a problem with you and asked you a question because you seem very into cars and you tell me my gauges are pieces of **** but I got them after I referenced your OWN FAQ.
You get the point now peace

No answers sooooo that's why I posted a thread. For me and other people's sake
Lol though!!- I bet mods come to this thread looking to move it back where I Originally posted it but saw it was already moved to interior mod. where it should be 100% because hooking up a radio and altering A hood scoop splitter are in the same category of course!

Nah its not on the outside of the car at all.
I wouldn't care but its the fact I've only talked to this genius twice and both times he contracted himself in a Smartass condescending way.
And he most likely does it to other people too
It has to do with the tmic which is an engine component not a roof vane, wheels, radio setup or steering wheel at all.

Granted, this^ isn't exactly what you need but it will help with ideas and methods.

This was my solution for my setup:

The intercooler splitter is part of your hood. Therefore part of the exterior.

People are trying to help you. If you can't do it, go to P&L, AMS or Six Star. They can all help you if you are willing to listen and pay.

Thanks that helps! One clear answer!

And again, false...you just take mods side to kissass like most do I'm not modifying the exterior at all you don't even see a splitter on the outside of a car
If he just moved it and didnt act like an ******* about it it'd be fine
Still wondering why you get pissed that prosport gauges suck then say there a top brand in your own write up wise guy
And have to be a jerk to other members that are trying to learn by saying something's wrong then we do the exact opposite to correct out mistakes and that's wrong too!
I buy prosport because you say it's a good brand then ask a wiring question about them and they suck apparently
Some people.....some people.....

Gotcha! Since there bolt on swaps that's not a problem I found one for $60, caws just wondering before I bought if it was easier to just mod my Wrx one
so what do I need to ask for besides the splitter itself? The seals and whatever bolts of of the splitter basically? Seals splitter what else?

I'm not the one on my high horse getting mad at people and treatin em like crap because they did what I recommended on my own thread just to act powerful because I'm a "moderator on a car forum" lol.
Nobody cares you are besides yourself acting like its a job promotion or getting excited about being a mod like you got promoted from a starting employee to CEO. ha!!
I'm just asking why? Right when you log on here, you just start acting hard

if the splitter is whole and has not been changed. in any way....unbolting it and straight swapping it is all that is needed

do NOT overtorue the nuts!!!!!

the studs will shear off in a heartbeat

I've taken the liberty of pointing it out, because this shot of the exterior of the car includes the splitter.
