Thoughts? Got rid of the Ugly STi Scoop FINALLY.

Well I have been searching for some time now for an OEM Sonic Yellow Scoop. Found one in perfect shape. Pretty stoked on it, It's amazing how the scoop alone changed the look of the car dramatically. Looks much cleaner. About time I got rid of the STi Scoop.

Boo. The STI scoop made in 2004/2005 was the hottest scoop ever made. All the hot chicks can't help but stare at it.

I prefer the STi hood scoop - partly because I want one - but I agree it's far less subtle and likely less aero. The important thing for performance is that it's matched up to the intercooler size underneath the bonnet for proper intercooler function.

i had thought about doing that to mine with the 04-05 scoop. but when i started looking i didnt like how it does not fit the style of the bug eyes. myself im going to get the GDB or 02/03 STI scoop. looks alot better. but ## wrx looks way better now with the correct scoop.

yes you are right the bodies are the same. but the hoods have different curves which is what i think throws off the look. but that is my opinion, some people like them, i thought i did at first and was going to do that to mine. later when i got my car i started looking and noticed people doing the GDB hood scoop which is a little bigger but still doesn't look out of place to me.

Yeah, the previous owner used the STi Scoop with the the stock intercooler. Now everything's original!

Agreed, I got lucky for sure. It's a pain finding a bone stock WRX with minor problems. I take great care of her.

I feel the same way. It's all personal preference but for me i feel like the bigger scoop didn't fit the cars personality. Thanks!

Honestly I love the big scoop look, but honestly the only opinion that matters in the end is if you love it and it works properly. Either way, still looks great!

Thanks man! I couldn't pass up on the opportunity. Got it for 50 bucks professionally painted and everything. My original plan was to get a brand new JDM STi scoop for it but that's 200 bucks or more, then i'd have to paint it etc. So this was a cheap alternative to making it look even better

Keep that bitch clean, she's a rare beauty.

I wasn't trying to put either down. That was just my take on the body.
It's your car, do as you wish sir

I personally like it either way.

I'm trying my hardest lol.
No worries man haha, I just really like the fact of how plush it is with the car now lol. I also think the OEM scoop goes with the wing a little more than my STi one did.
