Default STI Hood Scoop vs. WRX Hood Scoop

Have an 05 WRX, looking to do a TXS UTEC stage 2 soon and wanted to know if there would be any advantage or disadvantage of using the bigger scoop with the stock intercooler?

Thanks.....

Yes, but you would need the splitter to make it effective.


do a search...

bigger splitters need to be matched to bigger intercoolers not bigger hood scoops

I have the STi hood scoop with the Sti Air Splitters and they work fine.

i thought the sti splitter was larger, ie: too big for wrx intercooler and allows air to flow around it..

Have you seen the area that the gasket actually surrounds? It doesn't skirt the edge of the intercooler as one might expect--it just encloses a smaller area within the face of the intercooler, so the STi splitter should still fit nicely onto the wrx intercooler.

you can stick with yours and do a search on ebay for a splitter, I think the guy sells them for like 30 or something. or fashion your own with a thin sheet of metal and some tin snips.

If you are using the stock ic, keep the stock seal/splitter. The scoop doesn't matter. You wan to seal the ic to the bottom of the hood. The scoop is sealed to the top of the hood. it is more important to seal the hood to the ic, then to seal the scoop to the splitter.
