Some quick little questions

First off I have read that the 04 blobeye sti hood scoops are a direct fit with the blob eye wrx. Thats awesome, however I have heard that the splitter doesn't fit correctly and you need a new one for the scoop to work with the wrx? (Not 100% sure what a splitter is.. always thought it was that lining on the bottom bumper of race cars).

Also.. wrx spoiler, it has a light on it. Whats the best way to take the spoiler off??

Thanks a lot guys, been a big help so far!

The scoops are interchangeable, the splitter is the metal part on the underside of the hood. You should swap both out when usually going to a bigger TMIC, but other than that reason Im pretty sure theres no benefit to swapping it.

The spoiler is only bolted onto the trunk. You have to take it off from the inside of the trunk (8bolts/screws I believe). And the light should just unplug from the harness. If you remove the spoiler you will have holes in your trunk for water and what not to get in, so be mindful of that.

That posted above is the nice fancy one. It helps distribute the air more evenly. But that isnt the one you have to get. Look for someone that may be parting out their car that ran a "stock" or factory STI one if you want it. Will/should be cheaper than the one posted above.
