    Yes it does weigh a lot more. The RS one is steel. The WRX/STi one is aluminum.

    i beleive its about a 20-25 lb difference. but the stealth factor would be worth it!

    Wingless, scoopless, debadged STi would be the ultimate sleeper (besides stealth-wrx)

    Yea dont do it dude. Wait for a CF or some other kind of lighter hood to come out. The RS hood is just to heavy.

    Hmm, maybe the extra 20lbs. would be worth it? It's not that bad...

    Or just plug up your hoodscoop with some birds or something.

    Haha, too bad mine is silver

    I would trade in a heart beat.. even though I have no clue why you would, the 2.5RS hood is like 100lb+

    Drop me a PM if you want to discuss a possible trade ;D

    The weight between the WRX STi or the RS isn't that big of deal. Its not like we are trying to shave 10lbs off to help performance

    It looks a lot better in my opinion. A friend of mine makes 7lb custom carbon fiber anything really, but charges $1000 for a hood!

    Get the RS hood and you'll just have to go on a diet to make up for the extra weight...I'm hearing alot of Atkins stuff.

    But really the weight isnt that big of a deal on a street car. Even 50 lbs can be the difference between a large driver and a small one, I doubt you'd even feel it on the butt dyno. And even if he does that's just a good reason to add more mods. I LOVE THE RS HOOD I say go for it.
