melting hood scoop
Posted 09 February 2004 - 10:23 PM
I have noticed that some of the xt hoodscoops have melted or warped in some cases.
What caused this? Engine overheating, idleing to long, turbo to hot.
I guess I want to know what type of temps the scoops can with stand before wasting time money ect putting one on.

LegacyT from what I have heard the wrx hood scopes aren't that good either. all the air gets pushed up to the rear of the intercooler and does nothing to cool the front part of the intercooler.
The reason I choose the xt scoop is ease of monting and all the wrx scoops I found were really expensive. I guess I will just have to give it a try and post back. I think you are right about the sitting in traffic part they would do good to let that hot air out.
I shot my air compressor at it and it did a pretty good job of catching most of the air? If that means anything.
Thanks for the replies
