Functional hood scoop

I've began the process of making my hood scoop functional. I hate all the fake styling parts

I hate the honey comb too that's probably the main reason I'm doing this. I know it's not going to add any power but it will look alot better especially since I put my mach grille delete on

Deleting it in the scoop will just cause it to fly off

I want to turn my scoop into a CAI, kind of like a shaker system. But have no idea how i would go about doing it. The cooler air would really help the intake.

Your scoop is going to fly off , your not making it functional .. No offense .. Your just letting air go into your engine bay,
If you want functional get a shaker system ..
Or remove your passenger headlamp if you have a ram air intake.

You could try to custom fab piping to go to your air filter , maybe get creative at lowes..
I've heard of guys making cold airs out of plumbing pipes.

I got a real close family friend who owns a body shop and he can't even order the bumper.. Everyone's been out of stock for the past 6 months..

Yeah I know no body has them anymore.. I had to drive 4.5 hrs to get mine used for $250 then brought it to the shop to get repainted but they lost it and I was told they were gonna get me one but they had no luck and ended up asking me for help to locate another one luckily I knew of the other guy who wanted $400+s/h which obviously I wasn't gonna spend.. So I told the Bodyshop about him and 3 mths and lots of pressure later Bodyshop finally gave up and ended up paying the $700+ for that brand new bumper and I got all the paint job for my front&rear bumpers, rocker and side scoops for free lol it's sound like a good deal and like I was the winner but man! Those 3 mths were hell dealing with that Bodyshop I even had to file a claim with the BBB and also had to contact their CEO

Question, why do they fly off? I had a 70 fastback back in 79 that I put a Harwood Mach-1 type scoop on. Not a shaker. I cut a hole in the hood and had a sliding door that I would close when it rained. Never came off. Then I had a 70 Mach1 351-C in 84 with factory scoop, not shaker. I made that operational too and it never came off.

Are the new ones just attached with tape from the factory? My 70 fastback scoop was riveted then feathered in with body putty. Not sure how factory scoop was held on 70 Mach-1

I'd like to open up the scoops on my 96 SVT Cobra hood. I've asked around and no ones ever done it. While it won't add gobs of horsepower bringing in cool outside air has got to help, especially at speed. That was the purpose of all of the real factory scoops from the 65-72 muscle car era.

If the GT scoops are just taped on then take it off, cut a hole and put it on backwards to let the heat out of your engine bay. Or screw or rivet it on. Can't hurt.

I know on the Cobras people have made ram air by removing their Fog lamps and running tubes up to the CAI. Just some food for thought.

Yea it won't come off. they are held by 4 screws. The main reason they fly off is when you take off the honeycomb insert you are removing the only screw that attaches the front of the scoop. As long as you secure the front of the scoop it won't fly off. There are a lot of write ups about this. So I decided to it. While it won't add a lot of power. It will keep the engine cooler. And with air flowing through the hood scoop I would consider that functional.

Thanks for the reply. Any air cooler than the engine bay air is good. Look at the setup from 60-70's muscle cars as to how they kept rain out. I had a sliding door made out of aluminum plate. You could use the honeycomb as a template at make a plug for when it rains.

I did that just before I got my cowled hood, and it ended up coming off on the highway after a couple of months driving, and water was getting in the engine bay.

i thought about the same thing, opening up the little vents on my 96 gt to help cool the engine bay or bring temp down atleast, make it atleast somewhat functional,

Is this finished yet? I'd like to see how it looks as I have been entertaining the idea of doing mine like that for a while.
