    wat?
    if you open up the scoop w/ nothing else, you can see the heat leaving the hood scoop. it's about as good as it'll get. just a high spot for heat to dissipate. hopefully i'll have the snorkel on this weekend and can attest to it's gains.

    Not functional. Thanks for reviving an old thread. Apparently with the angle of the hood and blunt hit by wind the grill takes, no air really passes over scoop. If it does, because air above it is moving so quick, it will create a suction rather ram air effect.

    That's awesome. Thanks for sharing, but I wonder how it "dumps directly over the stock air box".

    I cut the back of my stock scoop out just to vent some heat out of the engine bay. Kind of like a chimney.

    On the 3rd gen 4R & 1st gen Taco the hood scoop actually was used for CAI on the domestic only produced Japanese diesels. (needs verification)

    Air is like a fluid. Any seperation of air is going to cause the air with the furthest to travel to speed up to meet with its original counter part. It's the same thing as the venturi effect. This increase in velocity decreases pressure and makes the top of the hood a low pressure area while underneath the truck is a high pressure.

    You just need a hood ornament like on a 737 APU inlet to redirect the flow lol.
