I simply think that the top-mount is a very eficient design, and it keeps the "character" of the car intact. The fact is that the radiator is specced for a car with a TMIC. Giving it 20-30% less flow WILL effect it's performance in ways that I don't have the time nor motivation to investigate. I don't want to find out in the middle of a 30 minute session on a 100 degree track day at Motorsports Ranch in Texas.

For me it isn't about stealth ... it's about a "clean" look.

With 18" gunmetal CE28N limiteds with gold Brembos peaking through ... stealth isn't the aim ...

I have given a lot of thought to the hood scoop without wing ... and I think that the stock hood scoop would look fuinny ... but I think that the scoop on the Impreza produced by STI at the '03 TAS would be perfect ... it appears to be wider and lower than the stock scoop.

The stock scoop looks silly with or without a wing ... the wing just multiplies the "cartoon" factor.
