Hi, I have a 2004 Subaru Impreza RS and am looking to install an intake from the 2.5i as I want to install a bonnet vent and don't want water to go directly onto my intake box. How difficult would this be to do? Would it be a direct bolt on?

Intake I have:
86345


Intake I'm looking to install:
86346

Can water easily get into the clamshell on the 04 style? My 2000 RS had pretty much the same clamshell and a hood scoop from the factory.

Not sure but don't know if I want to take the risk. I plan on buying a WRX bonnet but replacing the scoop with a vent so water would end up hitting the intake box directly which is why I'm looking at doing this.

Ive never had a leakage issue. Subaru designed it that way from the factory to last 300,000+ miles. I would be more worried about getting the wiring connectors wet than the intake box.
