Cutting hole in hood under scoop ??

Hey guys...I am thinking of installing a good scoop...the MMD...and was wondering...

Would it actually help engine cooling if I cut a rectangular hole in the good underneath where the hood scoop will mount ?

Is that idiotic ?

invest in a hood rather then chopping your hood and adding a glued on scoop.
to me sounds like a hole is just a easy way to poor water ( when raining ) onto your engine.

Gotta ask yourself if thats even a high pressure zone. Cars that actually have functional scoops have hoods that are designed to funnel air to those areas.

That is without at doubt the best looking hood with a scoop I've ever seen on dang near any car. Just beautiful

Don't cut your hood.. Are you worried that it's going to overheat? It won't. You won't get any more horsepower from a hole in your hood either.

The link posted above is the way I would go, or just get a bolt on scoop. It's all for show anyway.

In "the day" when hoods got cut in their center, it was to direct air to the air cleaner that sat on top of the carb. We all now have a factory "CAI", with the air box in the front, drawing cool air from the front grill for our fuel injection vehicles.

They even got smarter "in the day" by creating cowl induction: the air scoop was rearward to the windshield, drawing the cooler air from there, and lowering the wind resistance by not having the hood scoop face forward.

As far as cooling, the engineers already have that figured out. I have yet to read a post on a 2011 and up Mustang with an overheating problem due to factory design.

It would not be a worthy mod performance wise; if you are after looks over function, then sure, go for it.

Yes it'll be cooler. No it won't make a difference other than on paper.

I would not do it.

That small a scoop is for looks PERIOD. By the way, don't bother having your muffler bearings chromed or buying canned seasonal air, cross drilled brake lines, electrodeless spark plugs, or even a heavy duty clutch belt. Seriously, there is nothing you can so for a few dollars that is going to improve your performance. $100's perhaps yes. The best thing you can do is spring for a $400 SCT4 tuner.

A heavy duty clutch belt will perform wonders however only if it comes with the special left handed screwdriver for installation.

You'll also notice performance gains after you get your tuner dialed in with a higher quality blinker fluid. The stuff from the factory is good for a daily driver, but there's more to be had performance-wise with a higher quality fluid.

Cutting a hole will do no good.the best way to go is a replacement hood with an air extractor where the hot air from the engine is drawn out at the windshield. The Roush hood scoop has a solid front. You would have to modify that too, and I doubt it could be made pretty. You would still have to have an extractor port, or take a chance that the scoop would damage the hood from air pressure. Keep looking for a hood. There are some very nice ones out there.
