    Newbie question

    This is my first car with a hood scoop (07 wrx). What happens during like a heavy rain? Is there drain channels or something?

    I'm thinking about love bug season too, I can imagine that's going to be a nightmare

    TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, DONT WORRY. THE BEST THING TO DO IS BUY THE NON TURBO HOOD FOR YOUR CAR. ITS THE BEST. NO LEAKS OR WATER OR ANYTHING, ESPECIALLY BUGS.

    SCOOPLESS FTW!

    Don't worry it's definitely not a problem.

    To the OP: please refer to gasstationboi's signature. Water does not harm your intercooler in any way and your hoodscoop is there for a reason. Bugs are just an annoyance and you can gently clean off the surface whenever.

    Please dont take him serious.


    There is no issues with water coming in the scoop. I wouldnt turn a pressure washer loose on high in the engine bay but rain/snow/washing water wont hurt anything. If anything a little bit of water is good for the IC as it'll cool it during a summer rain.
