hood scoop...

I am looking to install a small hood scoop on the passenger side, just above the air box. Anyone have an pics of a good scoop to use?

I will probably go with some type of louver but I am only looking to have one on that corner of the hood. My funds for the Banshee shakker hood are all gone...

i was thinking something smaller. That would be an optimum place for an induction. Have the air go in and down to the bottom of the box so if it pulled in rain or whatever, it would just flow through a drain while the air would create some type of "vortex" around the conical filter. Just a thought...

maybe I will just go with an intercooler... just have to figure out where to mount it.

Yeah so long as its functional it doesn't matter where it goes in my book. RX7's scoops weren't centered. I just HATE the fake scoops!!

I was thinking of the same sorta thing....hmmm do I smell a possible group buy...ehh maybe not, probably be too much money for most.

They make them also slightly recessed like on the early muscle cars, that would be cool, you could direct like ram air induction.

You could do something like the 98ish subaru's . They have an intercooler scoop in the center an then two vent type things down towards the corners
