Question 01 legacy gt le adding turbo and top mount what hood?

Ok guys and girls i am ordering my turbo kit this friday, how ever i need to get a hood that will work with the top mount- I heard that a 04 subaru baja's hood will fit? I am trying to find a carbon fiberhood if possiable. But i am trying to do this fairly cheap, if i use a baja hood what other modifications do i have to do? Are there any other turbo hoods that will fit this car? or any older legacy hoods that will work

thanks

Erebuni has a CF and a fiberglass hood available that should work....something to check anyways. You can get a look for how it will look and how much you might pay. Ideally a JDM hood would be great.

Or why not cut a hole in your hood, add whichever hood scoop you like, mold it in. (I'd take the CF hood myself, but it is an option...especially if you have a friend who is a fabricator.

yeah i always wanted a cf hood,but as a passed mustang guy with a fox body stang i dont think a cf hood would look all that great. lol But how much do you think that would run? Then i can just use the hood and say it is a show car just like my stang.. around here it is kind of competive when it comes to street racing if i get back into that ;-) Ill defiently look into it thanks

can we use the stock grill with the cf hood?

I just ordered a Baja hood the other day, and it will fit right on. I have been talking with 2000LegacySti and he just put his on last week with no problems.

I have heard that the erebuni hoods do not fit correctly. The holes for the windshield washer jets are not correct and I did hear something about the front fitment being off.

Plus, the Baja hood is only $300! plus paint of course... But I think that will be the best way to go and look the cleanest.

The grill just swaps over as far as I know. Good luck! As soon as I have the hood on, I will get some pix up!

I need to do the same thing with my 96 legacy. And Outbacks are pretty common where I live, so I should be able to get a hood with scoop off one of those from a junkyard. This would work right? I have a wrx scoop sitting in my room, but I think I would actually like the stock look more

ok, here's the scoop...

I have a 2000 legacy GT Limited and put the '04 baja turbo hood on last week. It fits PERFECTLY, absolutely no mods. I would definately recommend it.

Secondly, I had the Erebuni CF hood for a couple days and it was horrible. I had to send it back. Although it was of sound build quality and was constructed well, the curvature of the hood was off, the curvature of the scoop was off - big time, the washer nozzle holes were predrilled but were too small and had to be enlarged, the cutouts for the washer assembly on the underside of the hood were not there, the hole for the hood support rod had to be cut, the holes to mount the grill needed to be drilled, and finally, the part of the hood that touches the sides of the grill were cut at the same angle if ya know what I mean. It looked like \ GRILLE \ instead of \ GRILLE / .

This may have been just my experience, but it sucked.

I hope this helps....

Good to hear, hadn't heard anything about the erebuni hoods. I wonder if the fiberglass one is any better? I'm guessin gthe CF one was fiberglass with a CF overlay?

Sounds like the baja hood is the way to go.

you will have no issues with the Baja hood because its the identical hood offered on the Legacy B4 BE/BH chassis, which is the same chassis as our car and the Baja.

good luck!

hey I was just wondering did they just use the aluminum b4 hood or did they do something stupid like making a steel version for the turbo baja?

I am going to make an atempt to go with a simular set up as joet and phatsuby running the autronic... I still cant believe about the cf hood being that bad of quality as far as molding i mean i believe you that it was bad but i cant believe they let that left there warehouse i guess some companys can just care less about their customer service

yeah, its in the shop right now but I will try to have pics in the next week or so. it really looks nice.



01LegacyGT- like i said, the hood was of sound build quality, but the molding was definately off, and I have heard positive things about erebuni. this was just my experience, someone else's may be different. regardless, the baja turbo hood is excellent, 4 bolts and you're done. sadly, it isn't aluminum. that kinda sucks, but its not too bad...it weighs the same as your factory hood

Sweet you guys! Just read this thread yesterday and I happened to have my car in the shop! Had a little accident and needed to change the hood and front bumper! I called them to arrange for the turbo Baja hood/scoop and 04 bumper as the replacement parts. Turns out, I only have to pay an additional $200 and some change!!

I'll have some pics once I get it.

Oh yeah, I'm driving a Mazda 6 as my rental...

So does anyone have pics of their baja hood on a BE Legacy yet? If everything you guys have said is true, I'll be ordering mine tomorrow. I have lots of paint chips and one huge gash on my hood, so instead of re-painting it, I'm going to go with the Baja hood. But I just want to make sure I don't have to cut, drill, or fabricate any parts.

Sam, I got my GR-2's and your Whiteline springs installed yesterday by AZP Installs (Tri-State forum) and it was a job and half! You never told me that I would need WRX tophats with those springs.
Luckily for me, they happend to have a WRX salvage that was laying around. Otherwise I would have been screwed.
In the end, my car looks nice and the next mod is the hood...just want to be sure this time.

So anyone have the part number for the Baja hood?

And did you order the hood painted your factory color? or did you bring it to your local paint shop to have them paint it?

Thanks!

I should have my car back from the shop early this week with the new baja hood on. I just dropped it off last week to get painted at my local body shop. (it comes in a dull black color) I'll post pics as soon as I have it back. part #: 57220AE01A

Hood cost me around $300 but you also have to order the hood scoop insert for it as well ($100). There are also a couple other parts that redirect air onto the intercooler that are required (unless your turbo setup comes with something)

I do not have a turbo so I did not need them. I am just changing the hood for aesthetic purposes
