    Has anyone taken out the pieces of the hood scoop to make it a working scoop?
    and is there anything back there that is sensitive to the water that could possibly be coming in?

    Actually race cars use them to get air to the intake, nothing to do with downforce. Downforce would be better without it.

    I was surprise to learn that the hood scoop on our Tacos are for aesthetic.:eek:
    My brother was the one who told me. He even popped the hood of one of his friend's Tacos and I looked at it.
