Well i've read numerous threads on cutting out the hood scoop, some guys say it works and some guys say that it doesn't work. So I guess what this thread is going to be for, is to finally figure it out. If you have any opinions on it, then please chime in but if you have a point, please have facts to back it up. Hopefully this turns out great and I will come to a conclusion on whether or not to cut out my hood scoop. Thanks alot for your time and help.
