I could be wrong, but lately when I'm really going for it the car seems to be 'mushy' at peak output, almost like it's running rich or something.

So I was thinking I should try to add the scoop back in but I want to avoid having it installed on a rainy day.. Argh!
i assume those subaru techician who designed our cars are much smarter than most of us. so "the black plastic under-hood scoop thing that directs air" shouldn't direct water... even if it does direct the water in there and it won't do any harm to our cars. there must be a purpose for that thing under the hood otherwise they wouldn't put it there.
