Default hmmm hood scoops

well since I talked about the body guy thats fixing my bumper about what all is possible and I have been thinking about a hood scoop. Not a ricy autozone one but professionally done, painted and everything. I like the evo looking ones the best but I like the other one pictured too. Trouble is these cars have the really shapely hood so I don't know how all that would work out. I tried to find a frontal shot for someone to maybe do a photoshop but to no avail. Anyways please give me some feedback and throw any other Ideas at me.

Have you seen this?

Two scoops would look best for our hoods, or one like that pictured in the thread above. The ones you posted are flat and wouldn't look right in the middle of the hood, though some body work could make it fit.

Were you thinking something functional for cooling, or ram air (which isn't really effective unless you're at 1xx mph)? There'* nothing wrong with a scoop for styling purposes either.

hard decision, i love the shape of it and how it would match the lines on my hood and flow with it but that the same thing if you look at the measurements on that picture those are in inches.. that thing is huge, the opening is 3 1/2 inches!!! So I'm tetering.

I feel with our bumper "nostrils" that the scoop would look better with 2 openings as well.

Personally, I'm looking at
