    I just got an '04 Outback and am thinking about installing a
    functional air scoop on the hood. I've read that some WRX scoops with
    fit on Outback hoods. Is this correct, or does anyone know where I
    could be Outback specific scoops or has done this before??

    if you are talking about the impreza outback the hood from a '04 and up WRX
    will fit. It's the same car.

  3. how would that be functional? the scoop on the WRX/Forester XT is to get
    air to the intercooler... the Outback doesn't have one...

    I was thinking it would provide cooling the engine compartment. It
    seems that of the three Outbacks my family owns, the engine run a lot
    warmer than other 4 bangers I've had. Would additional air/ventalation
    for the engine help keep things cool enough to have a noticable
    effect, or am I out of line on this??

  5. I guess it would add airflow, but to be honest I wouldn't get to concerned
    about under bonnet temperatures...
