I am thinking of buying a new WRX and I am really excited about it. The one thing I don't like is the hood scoop, it just isn't up my alley. But I have been looking into options to add a fmic and replace the a hood with another non-turbo Suburu hood. I have seen a bunch of people mention that as an option but the responses were from a long time ago.

Is it still possible to add a fmic and swap out the WRX hood with an impreza hood on the current models?

Thanks!!!

Yes that's what I did on my battle wagon. You lose Subie bro points though which was fine with me :)

Nice!!! Ill take the hit on the bro points. Hopefully I can earn them back by installing the fmic myself!

it looks pretty mean with no scoop and the FMIC in my opinion. I loved it.

The one thing keeping scoop does for you is keep the underhood temps down which is a huge thing. Especially if you have a ram type intake that pulls air from inside the engine bay and not outside the car.
