I posted this before at sf.com. I am trying to get some info on how really different those scoops and their mounting points are from the stock XT scoop. I really like the idea of having a 04-05 WRX scoop on my Forester, but unfortunatelly I don't have a scoop itself to do a test fitting / measurements. I've been told many times that they won't fit, I just need to know what exactly won't fit and how difficult it would be to custome-fit one.

Another question is about 06 WRX STI scoop. It looks good too, so if (1) won't work I would consider this option.

Anybody has any info to share?

I asked in another forum and I was told also it doesn't fit. I would love to run a 04 - 05 scoop also because I love the look.

**Crossing fingers that someone will make it happen.

02-03 wrx and sti scoops are the only direct bolt on's for the forester xt. i have a 02 sti scoop that i use. it's shaped almost identically to the forester's scoop, but maybe an inch taller and 4 supports instead of 3. if you look on ebay, you can find the 04-05 style scoops for 02-03 wrx/04-05 forester xt.

True! I made the mistake of buying an 04-05 carbon fiber STI scoop for my FXT and it did not fit up at all! The 02-03wrx scoop had the same mounting points and will fit.

I tried and failed to fine a 04-05 WRX scoop for my SF5 and failed too.
I ended up getting a bad fitting STI scoop supposedly made for the sf5 from a guy in Aus, but I would have loved a more discreet WRX scoop

v7 scoop = 02/03 STi scoop, as mentioned by Blue Devil above. See my avatar (or profile) for a picture.

Can anybody give me a link to a place where I can buy this big USDM STI (04-05) replica scoop? Gruppe-S doesnt seem to have them.

Gruppe-S has them:
Here (just like Ant posted)

The picture from above (this one):

is from their site.

Title: AeroSync GDB-C Scoop - 02-03 WRX
Part# ASY-02-GDBC-SCP
Price: $189

If you're taking votes, however, I think that version of the scoop is hideous. :) (OK, I know you aren't and to each their own, but I had to say something!) ;)


EDIT--My apologies, I just now noticed the in the title that you were looking for the non-STi version. I don't know if (or think) there are regular WRX ones. Not many folks want to change the look without improving flow--they usually go for both, so I think the STi is all that's available. Sorry!

why not? I'm always open to other peoples opinions. So, is MRT's replica much better? Is there any other replica that you could recommend?

You know, that one on MRT's site might just be a WRX scoop and not STi. I'm looking at the second one. It doesn't say STi, and I can't tell for sure, but it doesn't look as god-awfully large at the STi one. But that might just be the pictures. You should Email them and ask the specifics.

This is an old thread I created when I hoped to find 04/05 WRX scoop. Now I just want a big-donkey STI one. I changed my mind but didn't bother reviewing the title :icon_biggrin:
