cant just use 3m tape, holes must be made for the scoop to site flush because of the studs that stick out the bottom.

Ah that sucks. Maybe you could grind off the studs. I definitely wouldn't go drilling holes in my hood.

Yeah I'd never put a hood scoop like that with just 3M tape. You are just asking for it to break free and bust your windshield.

Normally most things held by 3M tape don't have the wind force against them the hood scoop does.

Also OP you could buy the stuff to make the template. Just two long strips of paper. Run them across the hood scoop and mark the holes then with them stuck onto the hoodscoop stick it to the hood and pull the paper tight and tape it down pull the hood scoop off leaving the paper on the hood and you have your holes to make and drill.

Yes, make your own template from paper or cardboard. If you can't do that, maybe "you" shouldn't be drilling holes in your hood.

Doesn't the Roush hood scoop mount with just 3m? I wouldn't want to drill holes in my hood either, not for a non functional hood scoop. What if you don't like the look? You'd have to get the holes repaired.

Yes the roush installs with 3M tape only. It was the aftermarket companies that started doing the drilling in the hood because they are mimicking a factory part and not going to get it to work like the roush piece. These hood scoops like to peel around the edges because of warping from heat/cold and the hikes drilled are supposed to help it stay planted

The roush hood scoop for the '13's require drilling.

I would make a body shop install it. Make sure you use an alcohol pad and clean the hell out of that cowl otherwise that new 3M tape won't adhere properly. Also, if you do decide to drill. Do not, and I repeat DON'T touch the metal shavings from the drill bit. Get something that blows compressed air and spray them off or spray them off with a water hose but don't touch them. They with scratch your paint very badly.

Not a full piece of cardboard? OK...so for example. AMs template is two long thin pieces of paper. Maybe 2" wide by 30" long. You stick these tow the hood scoop and then the hood scoop on the hood and pull them tight and tape them down to the hood. Then you have your spot to drill. I also recommend before drilling to tape newspaper or whatever all over the spot you are drilling instead of just blasting the shavings off. Even doing that they can still scrape the paint.

Top tip #17, always tape the area where you plan on drilling. This will help prevent the paint from chipping off when the bit starts to bite thru.

Top tip #18, measure twice and cut once.

Top tip #19, let someone else do it.

I love it! Makes it look mean. Performance white is the best color also.. Just my .02. Maybe you should slap a CDC chin on it. Here's what mine looked like when I had it and it would look even meaner with your hood scoop

The roush front fascia is awesome looking. Stage 3 motorsports has the painted option ready to go with foglights for 780 something I believe. I would have purchased the roush fascia, but that's deep coin for just a front bumper. I ended up getting the boss fascia with fog lights and the splitter to go with it for half that price and love it!

It looks good. I'm just not a big fan of non-functional scoops though. They just cause drag IMO.
