Default Scoopless hood options for 04 05s (non RS) ?

Since the RS hoods are still heavy steel are there any other options for the 04/05s that would give me a scoopless hood?

(Obviously to be used with a FMIC)

Can't seem to find any carbon / aluminum options that aren't one offs.

Any input appreciated, thanks.

You could just go with a reverse hood scoop on the current WRX or STi hood.

Too much hydroplaning with the scoop?

Sorry, I think you're SOL

no, see here is the problem with the STI scoop.

When it is raining out,the kids from across the street come and stand under it so they dont get wet waiting for the bus

BUt also, smoother lines desired, es. BUt second. In my car, the seats are lower than stock seats for a lower center of gravity (Sparco Evo seats with a cage), so the hood scoop dos inpair vision down on the front right side of the car.

sort of off topic (to all the lucky people who own this specific hood) but im interested in getting the kaminari CF reverse cowl. i was wondering if it is bad to have installed when it rains. wouldn't the water and debris ruin something somewhere in the engine bay-which goes into my next question; as for the cowl, when the hood is mounted and closed what part of the engine bay is revealed through the opening of the hood(cowl opening)?
