Question Make hood scoop functional ???

I am picking up my new y2000 RS on tuesday. I was really supprised to find that the hood scoop is just for looks. Are there any kits avaiable to make it functional. I would really like to use a K&N filter also.

Thanks.

The scoop is ment for an intercooler. Those who have made kits have found little to no improvement.

There are two kits out there that will make the scoop functional
- Minnam Stage II Turbo
- JC Sports Agressor Turbo kit



Sorry, I had to do that.

Noooo!!! I don't want to start the mini gun on a swivel mount under the hood scoop thread again!!!

And no the laser didn't work out either. Vibration from the engine killed the flash tube...

Now a Trunk Monkey under the hood scoop... Naw thats just plain evil.

Ok, I just did a search, and I found this topic, and I'm wondering is there any sort of splash/rain protection for the intercooler and hood scoop once it's opened up?

Or is water not a problem?

thanks

now im in on the paintball gun mod... what is the muzzle velocity of a paintball? would it be able to catch up with the car in front of me on the highway?
wow this is OT.
you would not want a splash guard for an intercooler.
try a search on this topic, there has been a lot of discussion on this.
a lot of people have removed the hood scoop backing with no problems... there is nothing in that area that cant get wet.
if you have a cone filter, you dont want water dripping on it obviously. you would have to experiment with that. some of us are using spacers on our vents to keep them somewhat open, but to direct the water. check the home depot hardware aisle for nylon or aluminum spacers or do a search in the classifieds, i think it was nick who was selling some. oh and rallispec makes them too.
i dunno if this helps... a search would be your best bet

Usually between 100 and 200 fps.

If you have a MY00 you can make the hood scoop functional. Do a search for "Intake" under the username "8Complex" and you will find his DIY hood scoop, use only in good weather, watch out for cops, god this thing is loud.. intake.

In case you're as lazy as I usually am... http://8complex.mwic.org/intake/ will lead you to my intake. I'm working on a conceptual design for one I won't have to close during bad weather, as well.

not that muzzle velocity matters.... you will already be going as fast as the guy in front of you! If you're already going 80, so is the gun and paintballs.

that's right, paintballs do 300fps (about 204.54mph) at paintball fields, but you can crank it up higher depending on the marker you're using. (adjust springs, regulators and whatnot)

hmm... thanks!

OK...back to the hood scoop thing....
YES.....technically you can make it functional just by taking it off...
With the cover on, the intake plennum box is quite HOT after a 10 minute drive....
However after taking the cover off and having the engine already hot and driving the same ten minutes, the intake plennum was MUCH cooler...
The scoop rams that air right on top of the box cooling it dramatically...therefore cooling the air inside. It might not be night and day, but at least now my hood scoop technically makes the car run better then not having it at all.
