I've only ever found leaves, but it would be funny to find a bird or something in it.

Tools. I had my TMIC off because the recirc hose on my BPV slipped off. When I was finishing up, I left my tools on the TMIC since thats what Subaru put it there for. I was in a rush, had to change and load up to head to Virginia. The whole ride down, there was this rattle..I thought it was a TMIC bracket I forgot to tighten (I ALWAYS forget to tighten one of them..)

When I went back home, I was getting my tools ready to fix the issue. Where the hell is my ratchet with 12mm socket, and my 12mm and 10mm wrench? Dug through my dad's tool kit to find what I needed, popped the hood..and there were my missing tools. Drove ~1000 miles with tools on my TMIC. Surprised they didnt fall out.

I sucked a seagull into my scoop headfirst! He didnt stay there long. Luckily during mid hit, he was flipped on his back so his claws couldnt scratch my paint.

My father used to have a jet black El Camino, in which he showed up to see us, with a briiiight yellow canary jammed in the grille.

As for my subaru's hoodscoop, just hornets and a butterfly so far...

If you don't have an intercooler, then why would you post in a thread labeled "What's the weirdest thing you've ever found on your intercooler?"


To answer the question. Dead bird.

Half of a dead bird, (a grouse I think).

The other half was splattered all over my windshield.

Medic14 thats looks like the markings of a Perrigrin Falcon! And holy schnikes I can't believe that it fit in there.

***Sidenote I dodged a huge owl last night on the way down the mtn. I think his leading edge of the wing actually hit the windshield, got a thunk noise from it. Stopped to see if he was anywhere on side of road no dice, guess he was ok

After popping my hood for tech at an autox, I found a dragonfly still live and well. Took off on its way like nothing happened...

I get paperbags stuck to my FMIC on a pretty normal bases. Last weekend I was on the freeway and someone lost a bag of trash, I had one of those styrophome (sp massacre!) trays that you would pack a travel meal on stuck to it. Complete with, what I think, was a cheeseburger.



(It reheated nicely.)
