Ok, I know this is a dumb question, but I promise I'm not a complete idiot. I just bought an '05 STI and don't know much about the mechanical side of it yet. I've been doing research on turbos and all wheel drive, but one question I have not been able to answer from browsing the internet, it's dumb but I am dying to know.
Obviously I would say that most people drive their subarus in all kinds of weather. I was wondering if there is anything to fear from foreign objects, water, etc. going into the hood scoop? Like if I washed my car and high pressure water went directly in there? I guess this question stems from a lack of complete understanding of how the intercooler is set up and how it works (I know the basic purpose).
If any of you would care to enlighten me I would appreciate it.
