    So I swapped hoods and had to order the 3 separate scoop parts and the black piece and the mesh piece came in today. I went to install and noticed that if I dont install the plastic back piece, the scoop would be an actual functioning scoop? Did anyone leave theres like this? Im thinking I will because Im sure it would make a difference no?

    You think? Why would the cold air move into the engine bay?

    It will make a difference due to the road grime going to the engine compartment, nothing else. Air Intake is on the side of the vehicle. Scoop is non-functional

    true enough, I was just thinking about it letting air in and getting to the k&n intake, but even then you would have to take the heat shield off

    I don't think it'd make enough of a difference to say so... You'd be better off getting a real cold air intake (like the perfectly good stock one that you pulled off and replaced with a K&N) rather than one that pulls hot air from the engine bay.

    I just put my insert back in and all I know is without it when you shut the truck off the heat would fly out of it so it had to do something to cool it off
