STI bonnet on 1.5 Impreza

4 posts in this topic

Hello all! A noob question here.

My colleague is scrapping his STI and is offering to give me his bonnet that has a scoop.

I understand that it will fit fine with my 1.5 hatchback, but my question is will it be okay if water gets in?

My only worry is that the layout of the STI engine bay is somehow different from mine, and my normal 1.5 hb really shouldn't be getting a scoop.

Thanks in advance!

The scoop will serve no purpose other then looks for you. Are you sure you want to live with people looking at you weirdly or trying to race you ?

Whats under the position of the scoop in your engine bay ?  For STi there is the intercooler there.

Water will accelerate rubber wear but other then that should be okay.

If it's the 'looks' that you want, people can easily tell that it's not a WRX or Sti. 

Dirt, dust & leaves will enter and make you engine compartment very dirty but other than that should be okay
