Default Hood scoops

I made a huge mistake and went for the non functional scoops and they look so dumb... I'm looking to get some CHEAP bolt on dual scoops. Any info on where I can get them and the best way to install them will be very helpful, thanks.

I agree, let us see what you have and maybe we have some ideas how to fix it.

True... and they were the cheap way to get the look but there was no functionality with them.

What I meant was making one, the way he did, is the cheapest way to get a functional hood
Saves on having to drop $700.00 or more

mine just scream FAKE.. A little part of the front sticks up you can see in the pic even though i took it to a body shop (they left my scoops in the sun and they melted to the shape of my dash) and they used some kind of automotive glue on it. It just doesn't look great lol.

Looks a lot like what I had. But to make up a hood like mine will cost you between $700 and a grand plus.
