That's about as cool as its going to get unless you go front mount.

Think it would be to much work. But you could try and get the unslanted WRX intercooler and that might help. Also do you have a turbo blanket and heat shield. If so I wouldn't worry to much unless you just want something to do.

Yea no worries. Some guys use the RS or WRX scopes for looks and a little more air.

You could get the slanty splitter from a GC8, and slot its holes or make a bracket to mount it to our hood. It's not going to be a direct fit by a long shot.

Example:

How many people seal the area between the TMIC and hood? Directing air through it and not around it should make a big difference.

Any one know if the slanty splitter from an early ver1-2 GC would bolt up? I have one on my car but I have a larger Intercooler so I am only feeding air to half of it.
