    Engine cover removal

    I was thinking of removing my engine cover in my 2015 wrx. I'm woundering if it would do anything to my tmic. I noticed how the hood scoop goes into the tmic. I didn't know if it would affect anything.

    There are a few things to consider here:

    1. Engine cover may help motor achieve operating temp earlier
    2. Cover part of TMIC funnel
