What do you mean by reverse air scoop?

Anyways, here goes.

ST185 = 90-93 awd Celica.
ST205 = 94-99 awd Celica.

Reg JDM ST185. Available in 3 ways.
Narrow or widebody. Both 225 hp. Basically the same one availble in the States, but with a better mapped ecu.
RC [only widebody]. 235 hp. This was the homologation version of the ST185. Came with heat exchanger sprayer [not hooked up], wtaic, larger AFM, ALL had rear LSD, vs some in the regular ST185, shorter final drive, taller 1/2 gears, different hood/bumper cover, lighter front and rear bumpers, and some other misc stuff I can't think of at the moment.
It [homologation version] is available from Europe as the CS [204 hp] or Aus as the GrpA [04hp].

JDM ST205. Available in 2 ways.
regular or WRC.
I believe engine power is the same. 250/5 hp. Supposedly this is underrated.
WRC came with antilag [not hooked up], heat exchanger water spray [not hooked up], double chassis welds, blocks for the rear spoiler to raise it slightly, and it's rumored to have a lsd front diff. I probably missed some, as I've never seen one in person to compare.

Well, there's only 2 hoods availble for the 5th gen.
One is the reg with a scoop [came on most ST185], and the other has a vent[came on homologation ST185], not a reverse scoop.
I currently have the RC one.
