Default new ram air hood for a 95 SSE (opinions)

this is a rendering of the idea I have for a hood that goes with the lines of the car. I will use the front grill, cut it, make it smaller, & then make a mold that I will use for the intake piece.

you should put a mini pontiac emblem in it to mimic the original grill

Doesn't look too bad. The angle of the opening will be the determining factor for myself...

just doesn't look right to me.

i think the 2, split, like on your car may look better

I think that looks interesting! I like the idea

That would look mean!
But I think it would be overkill that big. Little smaller maybe, but I get the idea your trying at.

Make it go farther back the hood, AND split it somehow.

Two deeper vents side-by-side.

I think the opening is too abrupt. Lay it back some. If it had a nice gentle angle I think it would fit the look of the car nicely. As it is it reminds me of a rally roof scoop.

^ i think thats just because its hard to get it to look like the right angle when photoshopping..

i agree... two vents that don't get so much wider as they go up the hood..
