Finally had the free time and patience to mount my hood scoop I bought from the UK. It went very smoothly, just checking and double checking before I drilled the first hole was the most nerve racking, after that it was smooth sailing. I ended up having it painted professionally, didn't cost as much as I thought but it wasn't cheap either. Color match is spot on which is what I mainly was worried about. Oh..yes and it is functional, I have 2 triangular holes in the hood.. A shout-out to onebadtrooper and tonnydoodles for their past-posts and messages to help me out!

what ya think?

Looks really nice. Did you need to remove any hood bracing, use extended studs through bracing, etc?

Thanks guys!

hey shooter, didn't mess with the bracing at all just some holes around them..Over in the UK the bracing is setup so the entire space under the scoop is open. I just have a brace going through the center so both side are open for airflow. I used a spade bit and made the hole in the bracing bigger than the hole on the hood so the nuts actually sit inside the braces just like on the stock diesel hoods.

Silly question perhaps, but why do you need the scoop? I thought the scoops were for the diesel engines? Is there a potential for water damage, 'cause water as well as air will be scooped in.

THANKS GUYS!!
Hey Jay I had the same questions before I did it.. The scoop is for diesels for their intercoolers but it could also serve a purpose of bringing in cooler air, so if you had a cone filter it would be beneficial ( I did it for looks). Little water get sin there b/c it is sealed around until the front, if any water gets in it evaporates, and all components are moisture proof anyways, think about the water that comes in from the front of the radiator..

:D
