Some of those do look good, and yes the BMS reno does make use of a roof scoop. One thing to think about, unless you are actually going to put the work in to make it a working scoop I would not recomend getting one... Cars with fake stuff like that are not cool, and they give car modders a bad name... As far as the hood scoops on that site, none would really look good on our car or do anything for performance...

easy is right...you'd have to cut a hole in your roof...and it would be pretty breezy and cold in the winter time...the only reason they have roof scoops is for fresh air...it does nothing for performance or aerodynamics.

If the car was mid-engine or rear engine then it'd be for cooling that off. Sometimes they might tie it into the rear brakes but that's about it. Race/rally cars are completly gutted and the exhaust under the driver alone makes some very high temps in the cabin. Plus there's no fire wall padding or anything like that so the engine heat comes right through.

I personally don't think a roof scoop would be worth it at all on our car as long as it's street driven at all. It'll slow you down so much at higher speeds it wouldn't even be funny.

I havent the slightest Idea thatd be kinda cool. I mean I just look at the WRX STI and like the look and if that hood scoop looks cool and has some benifit, why not?

you can fit ANY engine into our car...you just need a lot of work and time to do it...and i'd suggest a rwd conversion if you're gonna try to throw a v6/v8 in your car.
