Default Fiberglass Update 10/16/02 Hood scoop install

No.. i'm not here to bitch about who's checks haven't arrived or who's in or out.. Since i'm leaving in 13 days i figured i might as well put everything together..

So with out Furthur ADO:

----------------HOOD SCOOP INSTALATION----------------------------------

Ok first, tools i used:

:arrow: Pliers
:arrow: Dremel with metal cutting disks
:arrow: Ricipracating Saw
:arrow: Hand grinder (worked the best)
:arrow: Hammer
:arrow: Drill
:arrow: a german (for all those persise mesurements)(perferably a bit pickled)

Second, stuff i learned:

:arrow: Cutting the hood with a grinder is easy.
:arrow: Igniteing your sofa is easy.....as well..
:arrow: You'll need 2inch or longer Riciprocating saw blades as the standard ones sold don't clear the second layer of renforcement.
:arrow: Dremel Cutting disks are useless.. at 6 bucks a package you only get 2 inches at the most before you need a new cutting disk..

For all of you who said this was hard.. i pity you.. It was easy from start to finish. Fisrt thing we did was make a template from the bottom of the scoop with the bolts in so we could make holes and the traced around the circumfrance of the scoop, tring to stay 1/4 inch inside the actuall edge.


From there we did a bit of measureing and re-measureing and after a couple of marks with a grease pen we taped the cut template onto the hood and traced it out on the hood.


We drew (by hand) a secondary line 1/4inch inside the template beacuse you can't cut longer.. so our plan was to cut short and grind out what we didn't need..let the scoop fall into place.. i left tabs to bend and drill holes into so we could use the exsisting mountings available.. unfortunately the hole wasen't able to be used and had to be cut intirely..


At this point we made the hood entirely un-refunadable.. useing the riciprecating saw for all the curves and the grinder for all the straight cuts cutting took about 15 min..most was taken by the saw as we had to cut one layer at a time as it wouldn't go thru both layers of the hood.


Just for ease of cutting we left the tabs unaltered and just cut straight in from those point.. we didn't follow the lines we made for our template.. again we didn't know where the mounting holes we would have to drill would be.. so we left em long as we knew we could cut the excess off later..in the pic you can see the tabs.. you'll also notice we haven't gotten around to cutting the renforcement from the other side yet..


Once all the cuts were made we would lay the scoop over the hole and see what needed to be ground away.. which in truth wasen't much it slipped right in even with both 1/4 reductions in our template.. we bent the tabs into "L"'s about 3/8 deep useing the pliers and hammer, drilled holes into the tabs. screwed together and really had no snags except that my hand-me-down sofa caught fire from grinder sparks..nothing major..
Tomorrow i wll put in the vents.. and try to set something else on fire..

All in all total time spent was an hour and a half from start to finish.

Finished pics:






Hope you find this usefull i will post this on my webpage as well on the list..

Default dosen't matter

True this was done on a turbo hood with a hole already in it.. but the size of our cuts completely elminated the turbo hole.. this same process could be done on ANY hood.. turbo or other wise..

it was just a bit less cutting with the turbo hood.

My only question would be, how well does it line up with a 02+ us wrx intercooler on the stock ej22 throttler body. It most likely would but Im still curious.

While your at it please test it on a BF with a wrx engine swap as well so I know how well mine will fit later.
