When I added a ViS Racing carbon fiber hood to my 2016 WRX STI, the first thing I knew I'd need to do was build something to channel air properly from the intake to the intercooler. Well, after making it by with a hacked-up plastic shroud from my stock hood, it's time to make something a little more... robust.
It's too difficult to build something off the hood, as there's hardly anything for something like this to attach to underneath. I've taken a page out of Bucky Lasek's STI and started building a custom shroud that attaches to the intercooler itself.
A few more things to adjust, then it's gonna get ceramic coated and get a fitted rubber gasket around the edges to seal it up nicely. Pretty pleased with the progress and fitment so far.
Might even be able to reproduce these when we get all the measurements right. Not sure how it'll fit with other aftermarket hoods.
That's not the top! I see the road going up still.
