Post Scoop reversal?

I would love to go with the, ala Impreza touring car, reversed scoop look. Trouble is, our scoops are asymetrical (sp?) Does anyone know who sells a non million dollar larger aftermaket scoop? If not I guess I'll just have to mess around with fiberglass till I get it right.

I have been thinking about the same thing for soem time now. I have a huge problem with the RS hood scoop being non functional and incredibly un-aero. I have drawn up plans for a simple aluminum plate that the would replace the scoop alltogether but have never seen a reverse scoop. Clear anodized aluminum looks great on the MY99 silver RS. I will keep updating from time to time.

Byron's car looks very clean with the reverse hood scoop I don't have any pics handy but I'm sure someone does I just wish he was more honest about his actual power output but that's another thread all together. AaronRs If you want to cover the scoop why not just put an ad in the classified section for an L hood I promise you will have many offers for a trade.

Question

I think TMR has the reversed scoop. I know that an Australian company sells them.

the reversed scoops I've seen have all been either completely different hoods or very good jobs. There is no seem around the scoop as there is in the forward position. It doesn't seem to be a matter of just having a backwards scoop put on.

As far as aerodynamics go, if you make the hood scoops function, ie. allow air to flow into the scoop, it should lower the drag coefficient. Currently, with a blocked of scoop, there is probably a stagnation point in front of the scoop, which increases the form drag.

Of course, there's the problem with water getting in? Is that going to be a problem? What have people done? The hood scoop is a b*tch to remove and install (compared to the vents) so I'd like to keep it off for good.

Ok, ok, this is all good info! Now, Where do I get a hold of Byron? As I said, I LOVE the look of the reversed scoop. I gotta have it.
I'll prolly have to go talk to the friendly neighborhood body shop guy later this week.

Looks are all it's good for. Personally I would delete the scoop altogether unless you have a top mount intercooler. The last time someone asked about the reversed scoop I went into a wild diatribe about what a real cowl induction hood does and how the reversed scoop was worthless... but this time I'll just say: if you like the look go for it.

Oh god, I hope I dont get in trouble for this one, but here is Byron's cell phone number.

(562)-805-1123

He has caller ID, so he may not answer right away. But he may call you back. Just leave a message.

the point of the reversed scoop is to suck air out of the engine bay. In Byron's and the CUSCO car's case they have front mounted intercoolers and it helps to "pull" air through them. There is no cowl induction involved here.

SubyPrez20,

You should edit your post with Byron's number. If you wanted to help him with the number you should have offered to email it to him, not post it for 1500+ people to see.

I know I wouldn't want everyone here to have my cell phone number. Nothing against anyone here or anything

Then again noone would want to call me

Just my opinion.

Right I should. But wait, I shouldnt. I would be pretty pissed if anyone posted my cell number on this board. However, when his number is ALREADY on the internet, at a place HE choose to put it. I see nothing wrong with posting it. If he decides he does not want it here, I am sure HE will POST A MESSAGE (yeah right!) and tell me.

Dont know...

Ummm, Actually I think I would define that as inapropriate! Merely because I would feel uncomfortable calling him on his cell when he dosen't have a clue who I am!! If you do have regular contact with him please have him e-mail me at dauthi555@hotmail.com Ummm, thanks for the help.

Have a Nice Day?

Ahh I forgot that he had his contact info on the JC Sports page. I guess it doesn't matter then.

Pete,

He posts occasionally on the STi- Mlist. You could possibly post there and he may respond. May being the key word

Cool

If you meet up with him, ask him for a ride in his million-horsepower RS.
