interesting to say the least. Although I think Im going to pass. I bet an STI scoop with splitter will do the same thing. Although its not free

I'd like to see pics...can't imagine how much of a tilt the IC-TB would allow.

I'm having a hard time seeing how this would make any difference. How would the amount of airflow change?

"another option you could add is if you want to keep factory seal around IC to scoop you can raise hood by 1/2 inch. All you need is 4 washers or so per bolt on hinge, 4 bolts that are 3/8 inch longer than stock, and you are done"

Um, what? Raise the whole hood so there is a big gap around the edges?

Blarg claims temp data, so who knows...maybe it puts the IC a bit more cross-ways to the air entry angle, and slows it down, letting it pull more heat?

AFA the hood-raising, that sounds unsat...

my guess behind this is that he is making more space below the IC, making air flow faster, thus better cooling. Also the angle of attack is different now, maybe its really more efficient.

Raising the hood is not though. IBHoodFlysOpen

Dumb.

Why streach you IC hosing? Trimming the shroud?? Dumb, just dumb.

The hoodscoop is only going to take in X volume of air anyways, so what good is it? It's not like you could apply the 'river theory' and say the air that has gone through the fins is flowed better, because there isnt a baffle or ducting removing the 'used air' from the back side of the IC, thus increasing the volume on the air coming in.

What a waste of time.

Awesome cool story. Thanks for bumping an 8 year old thread. This also doesn't sound like it would actually do anything, but more power to you, I guess.
