So the hoodscoop is for the filter right? That big carbon fiber box housing what looks like foam? That is the intake for the turbo correct?

Yup, you can see on the second last pic the turbo is connected to the bottom of the airbox.

Hi guys,

The new car now uses a bonnet vent similar to the Evo.. this is to allow air out from the radiator and I/C

The black back on top is indeed the air box...with an open top filter design.

This feeds directly into the turbo.

The design is so simple and quick to work on. The alternator is down below the engine.. on the drives side (left hand drive).

The makes so much room...

dcrawford..which bit..describe it to me

those brakes were awesome! You should see the suspension setup.. with the roll bars and frames! heehee

Where would the maf be located on the new wrx? Infront of the turbo(in the airbox) or infront of the throttle body?
I hope it'll be in front of the throttle body so you can just stick a k&n filter on the turbo and hear it scream under wot

I love it but think they took a step back. The hot air would exit the evo style vents and be sucked into the hood scoop. I thougt that was the idea of having side vents.

Of course, the above hipotesis would hapen at speeds, not at idle.

But still, impresive car. I love those 6pot brakes. Shoulr add them to christmas wish list

Jay_UK - Excellent pics! <Burns_mode> Ex-cellent! </Burns_mode>

The car is sweet, but I still take issue with the movement of the badge and the JC Whitney catalog blinkers...

Although I would like to agree with you Leonardo, I think Prodrive knows a 'little' more than either of us.

Hey about the hood scoop/ vents... thats the way the current WRC works too.

The hood scoop is from the air intake, and the hood vents are used as exit paths for the front mount intercooler. Nothing new.

Spot on, the front intercooler exit has to be a mock up as the hot air exiting from there were be sucked straight into the inlet. Not a good idea at all....

If you look at the curent WRC car, it uses 2 periscopes that exit either side of the inlet for the air box purely to avoid this...

The only way round this and still keep the big intercooler exit is to not use the bonnet scoop for cold air, but have some vents from the headlamps built into the underside of the hood.

This would be a neat solution as rally cars spend most of there time sideways so there would always be a good feed to either corner of the car.

Just some ideas, that setup makes no sense at all.

nice pictures Jay

No, that setup will work fine. Yes the air exiting the vent will be heated slightly from cooling the radiator and intercooler. However, any air that goes into the hood scoop will be sent through the turbo. So it doesn't really matter what temp the air going into the scoop is because its going to be very hot comming out of the turbo. Then it goes to the intercooler and gets cooled by the air that will eventually exit the vent and enter the scoop to repeat the process. So basically it doesn't matter what the temp is going into the vent, just what it is after it comes out of the intercooler.

I find it amusing that it's got a whole fake dashboard with non-functioning (probably moulded) air vents!

Eby, sorry mate but you are dead wrong there.

I run a groupA Escort Cosworth in UK forest rallies. The bigest single mistake people make with these cars is they install cone filters that sit inside the engine bay and suck hot air in.

It looses you power big style!!!

Take a look at all the works and front running groupA, WRC Escort Cossies, they all run panel filters that are enclosed in a box with a feed from the front of the car.

The colder the inlet temp, the colder the outlet from the turbo, the less work the intercooler has to do and therefor the cooler the charge temp.

sucking hot air into the turbo is very bad news, the air is less dense and makes the turbo work harder to produce the required air flow, generating more heat in the turbo. Its a viceous circle!!

i wouldnt call 100 degrees C plus heating the air slightly either!! The temp of the air from the turbo is well in excess of this, up in the 150 degrees range on high boost, the intercooler drops this to 40 degrees, that heat has to go somewhere..
