    Welcome! I had a 2003 bugeye as well. I put some helpful links in my build thread, which is linked in my signature.

    For what it's worth, WRXs have aluminum hoods, which are actually lighter stock than a carbon fiber hood. Unless you really like the look (and that's entirely up to your own tastes), the stock hood is more efficient.

    If you have it and it's in presentable shape then I would, yes. It will almost invariable fit better -- it will certainly fit correctly -- and it is a high quality piece made of Al. I know of no replacement that approaches it in quality.

    If you like the carbon fiber good, keep it. We can't tell you what YOU like we can only tell you what we like!
