    Question for Grill and Hood Scoop

    Being new to Subaru, and this forum. I was wondering what people do (if anything) with the open areas in the scoop and grill upper and lower. It seems like a lot of debris will enter engine compartment. Are there screens available for these? Or do you make them yourselves? Just seems like the fins would get all messed up from bugs and alike I would like to see what others are doing. So put up some pics. Thank you for your help

    I heard somewhere that by adding a grill or something to the hood scoop it could restrict the airflow to the TMIC. If I can find the thread I'll link it.

    I wasn't referring to the air box, but K&N is good you can reuse them.

    That is what I'm looking for, doesn't look to restrictive on air flow. Thanks

    I have the grill craft scoop grill. I travel the country for a living and haven't noticed a difference temp wise or power wise. after installing it. Has been in there for about 5,000 miles. I can say it has saved alot of crap from going under the hood such as leaves and a few birds.

    Sorry, i was thinking that the airbox pulls air from that scoop and that's how my filter got so dirty so quickly! if i had an after market intake that would be the case! So i thought to put a screen on the intake scoop to keep out the biger partical's of crap! Not sure but that's my thought's on it. I did see alot of crap in my oil intercooler like straw, bugs, and small rock's. I would figer there would of been a mesh cover or something and that the previous owner removed it! that's what i thought till now.
