Making the hoodscoop functional

I was wondering if there is a way to make the stock hood scoop functional with out having to remove the entire hood installation.

I've looked into this too a couple years ago!.. And basically it would take a ton of fab work (that's putting it mildly)!... The time and money would be better spent elsewhere!..

I've seen some challengers that have a small cut out in the installation and it had some kind of plastic chamber (bet its not plastic ) leading from the opening of the in insulation to the scoop could this work with our cars

Not in the way your thinking!.. The Scoop on our cars sits to far back from where the filter and MAF sit!.. In order for it to work you need to make the path for the air to be as direct into the intake as is possible!.. Otherwise it's just a waist!.. If your really wanting a "RamAir" setup then just get the Mach1 Shaker Scoop for your Stang!..

Re: Making the hoodscoop functional

drill a hole (or holes) in the hood under the scoop. won't look good if you take the scoop off, but it was put there for a reason, right?

Then drill out the honey comb crap in the front (or just remove it all together)!.. Then drill out, or cut out, that small portion of the hood (underside that is) that looks like the same shape of the front of the hood scoop!..

This is just a basic run down of what to do!.. But keep in mind that there is no real benefit to this!..
