Shaker Hood Scoop Install Question

Looking for some input from anyone who has participated in an installation of a CDC Shaker Hood Scoop on a 2010 GT.

My question is in regards to the cutting template. As some would expect to use the template as a guide to cut the hole In the hood, one would think you would follow the diagram.

I am about to tackle this project and reading up on this. I read two comments that they actually cut 1/4" inside the templates guide lines and if they had to do it again they would have cut 1/2" inside the line.???

Does dot make sense to me, So I am slightly conflicted here,

Any input would be very helpful, measure 6 times, cut ONCE.

Well, apart from the expected comments of "if you're not sure, have someone else do it"...

When cutting anything, it's always best if you're unsure to leave yourself some safety room. So I would recommend cutting pretty deeply inside the marks. You can always cut more, or file more off. You can't add hood back in if you screw up. (I'm also assuming you have the right tools to cut with and know how to use them. If not, get the right tools and practice on something else.)

Also, don't be a dummy and cut the hood while it's closed and on your car. Do it right, take it off and make a good work area. Prep the heck out of it, double check several times, mask both sides, etc. Patience and diligence will pay off.

Well the gasket and bezel give you room to work with and can provide a reference to the template. The measuring of your hood is critical. Finding the true center line and adjusting. Now if you look on the insulation under your hood you will see a cut out for the shaker from the factory. The scoop that indexes on top or the engine is a another factor and will need a little tweaking. Using the correct tools and no cross contamination if you use a cut off wheel and drill bit. If you have a dirty iron or steel contamination on a old wheel it can cause problems down the line with a aluminum hood. So use a fresh wheel and a clean bit.

Hope this helps

Nice. Always loved the look. In fact, it's one of the reasons I bought my car. Just dead sexy. Kind of a pain pulling it off when you need to get to plugs and COPs but still a great mod.
