Stock hood functional

I'm thinking about cutting a good size square in my hood right underneath the hood scoop and to cut out the hood scoop so air goes through it, then down the hole to the engine. I would like to know what kind of saw could cut through the stock hood easy?? and I am thinking about using krylon to prevent the rust from cutting, does anyone have any ideas on this or is there something better to use?

I have been debating on whether or not to do this myself. But I would be running some ducting under the hood so the air hits my intake. The only thing I worry about is water.

But, if you use a sawzall to do it, be careful! lol

I used an air cut off wheel to cut a hood in my Jeep for a snorkle that worked great. Others have had good luck with a jig saw with a fine blade or Dremel. Just use ur touch up paint to cover exposed areas...easy and it matches.
