Functional or Cosmetic Hood Scoop?

Is Optional Hood Scoop Functional or Cosmetic only


The Silent Majority always get slaughtered! It's always the small minority radicals that impose their will on the majority who don't speak up!
Americans have nothing to apologize for except for letting progressives force their will on the majority. :run_over:

Ask him how since the air intake is in the fender wall and the scoop is not even connected to anything...it's not like the old days of the carberueted cars and they found that a hood scoop was nearly useless anyways, the best way to get air into the engine compartment is through the cowl...
Years ago Jack Roush had a really unqiue cowl induction for FI motors...

Open the hood. There isn't even a hole in it. It's only cosmetic. The scoop it glued and boltted on.

Find a different sales rep. It is nonfunctional, but I love the look.
