Default Want to connect the hood scoop to the intake on my '98 OBS.

Would this provide any real benefit in terms of preformance?

I think it would be kind of neat to have an actually functional hood scoop on my car.

how would I go about it? I assume I'd need to replace my intake setup, but I wouldn't really know how to start, other than possibly finding a gasket to fit the underside of the scoop.

What ever happened to Gravel Sports Intake and PKZero?
They had a really nice design which seats the stock size panel filter right below the hood scoop and ducts a 3"diameter pipe right into the intake manifold. They were expesive and there are a few members who raved about them. I just did a search, a few archival threads (click) and (click) , but provided no images, but some further searching might yeild inspiration. You'll also find expressed concerns of theoretical water ingestion probs from rain. Although, one may contend these concerns were dismissed nearly 75yrs ago when airplanes proved their abilty to fly through rain. There is the possibilty of probs associated with MAF/MAP or whatever your '98 has.

yup, he would need a maf in there too. Also the absence of the torque box by the intake will decrease low end power. I think you would end up with some big curves to the pipe to accomodate all that and not gain much.
You would be better off to do the snorkus ectomy and pipe into the fender.
You can open up the hood scoop. It will cool your engine bay a little and impress the chicks.
