scoop assistance
« on: December 12, 2012, 05:46:45 PM »
found an 04 sti seibon cf scoop for 160.  measures about 3.5-4 in tall.  i have an oem 04 wrx hood and scoop/splitter currently, but have an 04 sti splitter coming.  tmic upgrade brewing.  my question is... does anyone know if the stock sti splitter will fit the seibon AND will i need to drill my oem hood to install the cf?  trying to avoid doing that.  if so i may just keep searching for a stock 04 wrb sti scoop.

Your stock splitter will work.  You shouldnt have to drill into your OEM hood.   I would guess the seibon is pre-drilled.

just makes me nervous that the seibon site even has a warning that say seibon scoops only fit oem seibon cf hoods, not oem stock hoods, even if the same year.  is this true?
