I personally think it looks good.

I would add hood scoops only if my car Ran at least a 13 second quarter.

Hoodscoops are just askin for a race.

they dont look terrible, but scoops that arent molded into the hood are GHETTO and scream 1992 Escort Ricer... not even tempo drivers would stick those on

Scoops can look good sometimes. Like the last gen trans am I have to say were AMAZING. As for funtionalty doesn't anything that draws air in to the engine bay essentialy cools it down therefore making the engine cooler and when cooler the engine runs better. Didn't pete have hood scoops on 'drug runner' RIP awhile back?

I am considering a small offset scoop over the air intake...but the more I look at the contours of the hood I've almost talked myself out of it...

some are just pieces of plastic you glue onto your hood. When you take them off before you go to sell the car the spots where they were will have a different paint color than the rest.
