^ my scoop did the opposite, I overheated the first time i had it on the rack. It was the only change it did to my car for that track day so it had to be the hood. I think it was restricting the air that was coming in through the radiator. I don't mind the look of it, i only did it because my hood was steel and weighed 42 lbs and the wrx aluminum was 21 lbs. I love seeing people walk around my car and not know what it is. RS trunk, brembos, wrx scoop, sti steering wheel and 6-speed but no intercooler or turbo, huh? Mine was for weight savings so i don't consider it ricey but others might.
