Default hood scoop and custom intake?

guys, got a quick question.

if i got a hold of an old wrx hood or a cf hood with a hoodscoop, has anyone tried using that hood scoop as a way to suck in air for a custom intake system? I think the velocity and air temperature would be pretty good, and the scoop lines right up with the airbox-- any ideas?

There has been people that have put a cone filter right on the throttle body and funneled air into it through the hood scoop.

I'm not sure on the results..do a search for RAM air.

Default keeping airbox

would there be a way to keep the stock airbox and an intake that takes air from the inner fender wall (ie ganzflo) and either modd/cut the stock airbox to also take in air from a wrx hoodscop?

i am going to search ram air in the NA forum now, btw.

I think if you do a search and look up gravel sports you'll see that they used a new box but with a oem air filter, if I recall correctly, kinda pricey but it looked cool and from what I have read sounded pretty good too....

the gravelsports one takes full advantage of the scoop..

no one's really ever explained to me how it wouldn't be hazardous to get caught in a rainstorm with one though...

hey, i wa thinking of doing the same thing. but i wasn't sure if i shouldor not. let me know what you come up with. i was thinking put a cone right off the TB, thenput little breather filters on the other ****. but the only thing i''m worried about is water getting on the cone through the scoop. how much water would it take to get hydrolock?

The gravel sports intake uses a K&N filter, and K&N filters are coated in oil. Oil and water don't mix, so the water gets repelled off the filter.

no, I think he means something like this:
Gravel Sports intake



More info on this thread from RS25.com

The intake is only sold by Suby Specialties repair shop in CA, www.subyspecialties.com has their phone #, but website's still not a priority for them. Hopefully they've still got some in stock.

Default yup

yeah scotty, somethign like that.

it looks like its just a box with a filter in it, that is connected via some piping to the throttle body.

I checked rs25.com and dude wants $300 for it.

Unless I am missing something I cant justify $300 for a box with a filter on top that is connected to the throttle body...

Anyone have this or something like it? I know BugBomb (sp?) did a cone filter onto the throttle body, with good results. I was just curious if you had a hood scoop (ie wrx hood, or older 2.5 RS) that with the velocity of air coming in from the hood scoop, and that the air is colder) if you would have more gains than a cobb/ganzflo...or would you have problems with a MAF/MAP and running lean...

any ideas?
