    Does anyone know how to take out the little black piece in the scoop that could allow more airflow to the engine?

    Pretty sure it's not going to make a difference. Just allow a lot of water in during rain

    Welcome to TW!

    Even if it were a functional scoop, it's not in a high pressure zone. Meaning it wouldn't get the air you think it would.

    Mod, move thread?

    I remember reading about a member wanted to do this before. It's really not worth it, otherwise toyota would have implemented it. Chris4x4 can explain it best, wish he would chime in with his graphics and explanation.

    You hit the nail on the head Jiz- That center portion of the hood is a low pressure, high speed airflow area. Inside the engine bay is a high pressure, low speed area....meaning air will get pulled OUT of the engine if the vacuum is strong enuf. And water and dirt will get in.
    That scoop ould need to be far higher off the hood or in a completely different place to be truely functional.
