I swapped on an oversized replica Hawkeye STI carbon fiber hood scoop onto my 2006 Forester XT to increase airflow to the 2018 STI engine swap that is hiding below my hood. Even though it is just a little flashy for normal my taste, I like the dark contrast with the blue.

I decided to spray paint the hood scoop mesh guard black and attach a laser-cut old school Forester JDM emblem with some hanging wire that I also painted black.

I trimmed the excess wire and applied another coat of black paint to clean things up.

It's quite a subtle detail being black on black, and not overly 'cheesy' in my opinion, but really pops in some nice sunlight if you're looking for it.

If airflow is the goal, lose the mesh. You'd be surprised how much it blocks.

Otherwise, neat mod!

Didn't think of that, but makes perfect sense... I'm looking for a hoodscoop splitter that will match my oversized stock 2018 STi TMIC. I might removed the mesh when I find one to put on.
