thats right i saw a video of a "trash talking" wrx owner and he was making fun of how his hood was raised in the back. Then he made him look stupid, pulling on him every time he tried to pass him!!

So my car will be as fast as his to right, because i have hood spacers to?Right?

I have the Rside Hood spacers from Kspec? Anyways, I have had them on for a couple of months now with no preoblems except for one. Sometimes to pop the hood I have to actually lift the lever and grab the hood by the windshield to "pop" it. I think that the spacers shift a little more weight to the front and the spring is weak (hoods wiegh 45lbs.).

I dont know why this would create a problem with water.

I confused............. rp?
i'm assuming that instead of HP = horsepower, rp = rice power

i insaleed them and the look sweet. As for being rice, i don't think so. It adds some attitude and is a popular thing to do in korea. i was worried about rain because i have a short ram, and any water traveling down the inside of the hoodcould possibly hit the filter. If it is raining hard enough and is at the right angle.

I'll post pics soon with my new camera

Ummmm maybe it's just me but couldn't you just go get some washers from a hardware store and use them as hood spacers?

I think this is just cleaner... I didnt pay for them so i dont really care that it was 20 bucks for a 3 dollar mod.

I like the way it looks with it on. Just something that no one here in Staten Island NY has. A buddy of mine who has the 2005 SE i will make him put washers in. :3_bdaybig
