Honestly at highway speeds I wouldn't trust just the 3m tape. They're a great brand, but going 70+ seems like a bit much for tape to handle

Yeah that's true. My window louver plates are held on by 3m but I guess there's a lot more drag on the scoop than there is on my window Louvers

there is another type of tape that you can use, its special for hanging heavy mirrors on the wall, not sure what the brand but you can find it at any homedepot or lowes stores, its a very strong double side tape that can holds really strong.

Makes sense. As long as you take your time though, and make sure the template is set up good, you'll be fine. I took almost an hour making sure my template was set up perfect lol

Lol. Yeah I wouldn't trust tape for anything more than around town driving. They need to be bolted down in the FRONT. All that stuff scares the hell out of me on my car. Hood, hood scoop, windshield wipers... All of it looks like it wants to fly off the car. Hehe.

The aerodynamics are totally different on a cowl hood. These scoops on our cars are just that, scoops. They are ripe for the wind to just lift them right up.

Yeah there's a huge slit where the air can just take it away I can do the drilling myself its just that I'm lazy haha. I'm in need of a new hood anyways so I can just practice. I guess It's just 5 holes I need to drill. Use some silicone on the bottom I think I'm good. Does anyone know where I can get a template though?

Alright. You got me to go look at hood scoops. I'm not sure which ones you're talking about but the ones that I looked at for our cars all bolted on. Those damn things are kind of expensive, by the way. I would bet anyone that I could blow a taped on hood scoop off of their new edge. Even your car Slo...

This is the one I got. Cheap, but still, I don't want $80 flying down the freeway. It's missing 2 bolt clips and the insert. Just need to drill 3 holes and put some tape on it I guess. I trust 3m my window louvers haven't flown off

I was missing almost all my clips and the shop installed it for 40$

I drilled mine. It was easy. Just made sure to cover the holes underneath the hood with some water proof epoxy so it wouldnt leak on the engine bay. Mine is from a saleen though so I have pretty sweet insert in mine.

drill holes for the front bolts...the rest leave up to the 3m. the front bolts will be enough to keep it from flying off. just like the xenon side scoops. they are held on with nothing but 3m but don't go into flight every time a person gets on the interstate

Yep. Taped on. That is a better tape than I have ever seen at the hardware store. I still say it will end up laying in the middle of the freeway eventually. With me driving anyway...

it's just 3m tape. same stuff we sell at any Autoparts do i prefer having it bolted...yes...if it's not possible though then lets try to help with other alternatives. however seeing OPs picture he still has 2 good bolt holes so that mixed with the 3m should be fine.

Agreed. Two holding it in the front should be sufficient. Go look at that scoop again. The tape has an adhesion promoter that you apply. It's been a while since I've used 3m but Ive never seen that...

that promoter is basically a mineral spirit...same stuff you'd use before applying 3m to properly clean off the surface. If you purchase side visors that are not inchannel it'll be held on by 3m tape that you'll prep the surface with a mineral spirit or even rubbing alcohol.

Read the manufacturers instructions. I believe the adhesion promoter is in addition to the surface cleaners...

Thats all fine and dandy but in the end 3m is just as strong. Believe me i sell exterior pieces every day that are only held onto cars by 3m and 3m alone

the hood scoop on my wrecked GT has a solid honey comb grill thing blocking air, if you got something like that the air might no rip it off with 3M.

You could also cut out the fake scoop on your hood and allow the air to flow in there then out the back like it normally does. On a GT is be against this due to COPs but since our sixxers have that single coil off to the side you could probably get away with it. Just an idea if you can't find an insert.
