Default hood scoop

so i was thinking about taking all of the plastic out from under the hood of my 99 impreza 2.5 rs coupe and actually making that big hoop scoop functional. i was wondering if anyone had done that and could give me any input about any problems incurred.

im not sure if water getting in the engine compartment all the time would be such a good idea. i dont have a garage to keep my car in because the wife has got that spot all locked up with the integra and my car is a daily driver so there is no way of keeping it out of the rain and it rains here in ohio pretty often.

anyway, any advice from someone who has experience with this would be great. thanks

I've had mine off for some time and so far no ill effects. It's been through snow, heavy rain, whatever, no problems.

Yeah I've had my center cover off for about a year now, If you have an aftermarket intake that sits under the left vent I would leave the cover on. I also left the other side vent covered, because things were getting dirty.

It would be hard with a MY99 because of the MAF. I know of some guys with MY00+ running throttle body intakes w/ great success.

The only prob you should really have is all the
dirt / dust collecting in the engine bay...

you'll have to clean it a lot more

good luck!

Actually i noticed that there is less dirt, the contant flow of air seems to not let any dust sttle, at least on the stock airbox. Just something i noticed.

I'm with Moogooob on the cleaner engine compartment. Before I removed the plate, there was sand and dust everywhere in my engine compartment. Maybe the change in airflow lets the dirt flow back out rather than settle??

Question Hood scoop and Functional

Hmmm,

What is the process for removal? Can anything performance-wise be expected from it? (other than a slightly cooler engine bay?)

Peace,
oqui
