    It is really bugging me how badly I would like to make my hood scoop funtional. It really seems like it cant be that hard.

    My idea:

    I would like to also keep the stock routing of the air filter that goes into the wheel well... and here is why. I would like to make a split and Y it off before the filter and add a line to the hood scoop so I could bring in TRUE cold air. Now on the hood scoop, I would want to make something to cover the "scoop" part on the hood (like a piece of plastic that exact size of the opening) so that if its really dusty or in the rain you can cover it and it would revert the air flow from scoop to the stock position coming from the wheel well.

    Does anyone think this is truely possible? Im sure I am not the only one thinking about this..

    Then do you think there would be any benifit to this? to allow hot air out?

    I was really hoping this would work... DAMN! Hey a man could dream of a funtioning cold air hood scoop on his tacoma :)

    I have a fiberglass hood with a real hood scoop. the only thing I have noticed is that when driving into strong strong headwinds it wants to lift my hood up.. the only reason I keep it is becasue it's lighter than stock. I really don't think it keeps my engine any "cooler"
