    Those scoops should serve some function other than just looks from the get go... Having a non functional one is like going to Advance Auto and buying some stick on vents for your fenders or having a moon/sun roof motor etc installed but on a regular roof with no hole.. hey, check out my sunroof "well I don't have the hole".. Good to see somebody actually doing something with it.:D

    This is clearly where the coldest air is taken from. Only place colder is directly behind the radiator...

    along the same lines, is it popular with these trucks to shim up the rear of the hood (making more gap by the windshield) to vent the engine compartment? i imagine coupled with this modification it would have significantly increased effect (but i have no serious science behind that)

    There is no ram air from the scoop on these trucks. The scoop is in a low pressure area of the hood. Its more of a "vent" than a scoop

    "Venting" the engine compartment is one of the most retarded things to do to any vehicle. First, it's a high pressure zone at the windshield, meaning you're forcing air INTO the engine compartment, not letting it out. There's a reason that most vehicles have a seal at the firewall/hood gap these days. Hint: if the car companies could remove that seal and save money, don't you think they'd have done it by now?

    Second, that means less efficiency for the radiator, because it's pressure differential that keeps air moving over the radiator. You make the engine hotter, not cooler.

    And third, it's just plain stupid looking. Why not bend the fenders to give a non-uniform panel gap with the doors, too? Spacers on the trunk make as much sense.

    Is there any way to just take the mesh out so I can paint it? Without drilling out those rivets?

    No. Drilling the rivets is it. Super simple.

    I did this 2 years ago to bolt my gopro mount thru the mesh holes. Worked great I forgot the plastic was even out. Engine cover looks no different then before. I did put pics in the gopro thread before, should still be in my pic list.

    Nice write up. My engine compartment is dirty/muddy as sh*t from off roading and driving down trails in the rain and I didn't do this mod. The bottom of my hood has had mud splashed on it from under the truck or slung around from the fan. But at the end of the day, you take care of your truck and detail it accordingly. I spray in the engine bay just like I do along the frame and driveline.

    So who buys a truck with a phoney hood scoop and thinks its cool? How much water and dust do you think comes up from the wheels? I think its a great idea, too bad my didnt come with a scoop.

    Hey folks,

    I havent taken mine apart to look at it but I was thinking of doing this to add some LED lights there. But from a quick glance, mine looks to be all one piece. Does anyone know if a 2013 has the same pieces as the earlier models that people have done this toÉ

    thanks

    I have this done to my 08 sport. Whenever I wash the truck i clean the engine bay and I've never had much trouble with it getting overly dirty in there, my two cents for all the skeptics.
