sti hood scoop on wrx

i am putting a sti hood scoop on my wrx wagon and will be installing a air splitter to go with it for better air flow. I am wondering if I need and wrx air splitter or sti air splitter for it. Since the wrx intercooler sits different in the engine compartment compared to the sti. I am not sure if the air flow from the sti air splitter will throw the air flow differently than the wrx air splitter. Can anybody tell me?

You really don't need either. I had an STi scoop on my car for a while, and didn't see any difference with or without a splitter.

The difference is like 5-10 degrees. I remember seeing a comparison test about that.
