Hmm, sounds like fun. A functional hood scoop haha. Would it be beneficial at the track? My engine gets pretty hot after a couple of runs. Since I'm doing a windstar swap soon David told me I need to cut a hole in the hood anyways for the iac.

you could probably get some ducting to route it around the engine better. maybe around the headers to get the heat out faster. My 95 has some stock little hood exit's(don't know what to call them, they were the same on GT's and V6's and cobras had them centered more). When my valves covers were leaking oil it dropped onto the headers and would smoke(only noticeable when I was sitting still) the smoke would leave out the back of the hood, or the little side thingies(wtf are those... hood vents???)

There you go. Thats not a bad idea and also reminds me where I saw the posts about the hood scoops flying off. There was a recent thread about someone doing a functional hood scoop. I can't remember which forum but it was on a new edge, of course. At least a couple of guys chimed in about their scoops flying off. They taped them on also...
