Hope you don't plan on using the hood scoop.

Subb'd for the soon to come

Seriously though, its not worth it. The skewp is in a low pressure area. Search around, theres lots of threads regarding this issue.

search around the site this has been brought up many times..

the scoop is a low air pressure spot, so its pretty much pointless.


EDIT: just read the post above mine.... pretty much said the exact thing lol my bad

Pointless. Just look at the URD intake or similar as mentioned.

There is also another member that made one by boxing in the hood support beams with sheet metal. I cannot find that one.

dont do it, even if you can get it to work: one there will not be enough air coming in. Two you will collect alot of dirt and crap in the air or off the road.

Rather than doing a ram air, have you considered maybe sticking on a few aftermarket skewpz around your factory skewp for more horsepowers?
