What???Where can I get one? and the STI rear wing to go with it. I'll have at least a 30-40 hp increase with both add-ons.

LOL I'm Just Kidding. I saw a photo of it in the background and I wasn't sure if it was real. Did he actually cut the hood?

I would have immediately looked for another spot the second he pulled up next to me, wouldn't want others to think I were associated with this fool.

STI looks ????

Well, from where I'm sitting, this is all wrong on couple at least accounts, let's forget the actual looks of the car.
In a technical sense, the very " idea " of the smooth hood, underbelly full pan, and bumper duct works, is to promote maximum cooling of the engine bay while driving. Pushing air through the entire bay with that THING on top, well it is not happening anymore, since instead of getting rid of all hot air that surround the engine and transmission you are actually making it hotter, how so??? By that STI upgrade YOU are actually increasing positive pressure inside the compartment ( pushing air through duct works and the hood scoop )
Now, the fan is loosing the efficiency, since it has to work harder in order to cool the engine.
If his idea was to introduce fresh air into the filters.... well it may work but only assuming that he is not using a stock air box, two cone filters would be the only thing that would make him some real advantage, but saying that I think he is loosing all that he gains ( and more ) through inefficiency of his " design "
I don't like to comment usually on someones shortcomings, but this one has to be on top of the " projects gone wrong "

What is the next thing we are going to see ??? hmmmm

People upgrading their 335's with hyundai big brembo brakes ( because they fit ? )

The car is clean, why ruin it with a non-functional hood scoop? Rediculous.
