The funtionality of the STi's hood scoop is that it directs air onto the intercooler, which cools the compressed (and hot) air going into the engine from the turbo. I'm not exactly sure what a tC hood scoop would be directing air onto... the engine block?Originally posted by whosthatrussian@Sep 3 2004, 05:10 AM
^^^ That's the point of reference in my head when I say I like hood scoops. I think the STI looks awesome and agressive on the front end, and I think the hood scoop definitely accentuates the front end nicely. And i'd definitely want it to be a useful hood scoop too, wanna see something funny? Check this out:
Dumbest thing ever. That's what I DON'T like. I think a fully functional hood scoop would look nice on the tC. I personally don't have the photoshop prowess to project my ideas for it, but I'd love to see what someone else, especially a company could come up with in regards to that.
