I know there are several unpleasant opinions about this...but I still want it.

I need to know what it would take to swap out the '12 outback hood with the legacy hood with scoop. I want to make it functional though...I was p riding parts online but I'm really not sure exactly what I wold need to complete this project.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

As has been mentioned in one of the many threads asking the same question (I've answered at least 3), the non-scoop Legacy hood and the OB hood are the same part number (check RockAuto Auto Parts for yourself) so it SHOULD be a direct bolt-on.

The fake hood scoop on the older impreza's at one point were causing issues with water getting into sensitive bits on top of the engine and causing some issues. Tossing the turbo legacy hood on the non turbo Ob seems like you would create a very similar issue with water going places that were not intended to be showered with water.

No, you won't.

Folks can keep it civil or say good night to this topic.

Nevermind that I think functionless scoops are lame (that's what you meant by "unpleasant opinions," right?).

SubieSailor is right about not wanting water, snow, leaves, or small animals being deposited on the top of the engine.

Good news! Pep Boys has a chrome stick on hood scoop for sale! I believe they also have it in carbon fiber!

You can get a sweet "TURBO" badge there as well, and a pistol grip shifter!

Take some photos for us, Paul Walker!

(Sorry post-master-supreme, I just had to...)

Could the air intake be modified so that the scoop could be used as some sort of ram air setup/cold air intake?
The factory intake is functionally a cold air intake already.

Very much so agreed. Adding a hood scoop would strictly be for looks pretty much. Unless your going to put a LGT turbo in it.

A 2010+ Outback XT would look very very very nice. BTW.
