Are both 04 hoods the same on the WRX STI & the WRX?
 
Are both 04 hoods the same on the WRX STI & the WRX? I thought sometimes that the WRX STI hood vent was a little bit bigger than the WRX.

The scoop and intercooler splitter are slightly different. The hood as a whole is the same.

Yep, 04/05 WRX and STi hoods are the same. If you're asking if the 04/05 WRX and STi hood scoops are interchangeable, yes they are. The 04/05 STi scoop is bigger than the 04/05 WRX scoop, so many people upgrade from a WRX to an STi scoop to allow more air into the system. Like Joshua said, the STi scoop also comes with a splitter which routes air a little more efficiently too.

The 04/05 STi hood scoop is sometimes known as the "snow shovel" scoop - for obvious reasons :)
