I noticed the owner of this poseted on the "Your Ride" posts. I think its gay. No offense to whoever likes it but I like the stock look on our cars. If the scoop isn't doing anything for the car(which i doubt it is) it shouldn't be on there. I don't think I'd want it on there if it did do anything. It just doesn't go with the car. We should keep our cars looking like sleepers rather than sticking out like a sore thumb.

What does everyone else think?

If they were FUNCTIONAL, and low profile, blended properly, I'd like one to feed the CAI and one to cool the top of the blower. I'll probably just duct underneath, though.

I would do it, i like to be different. I dont like my car looking like everyone elses. I think a hood scoop or something in that area is something unique, even if its not functional. Realistically its a waste of money though.

they dont even blend in. They don't look right. They are just plopped on top of the car. Also, it looks terrible the way they aren't blended into the hood. They are def sticking out like a soar thumb.

I wouldn't, only because I like my car to look totally stock on the outside.

I guess it is all opinionated. I give the guy credit for doing something unique and original.
