Have a Nice Day? Looking for hood scoop

Okay, I just read the bashing that went on about the civic with the hood scoop. I agree, he probably had no reason to have it on there, but really, do most RS's need them either? WRX, yes. 2.5 RS, no. You know why it is there? Cause it looks sick, no other reason. It just looks the business.

I drive a 1.8t Golf. Seems to me that the scoop would be benificial to pushing air down over the turbo and out the bottom of the car. My question is, do any of you know where a scoop can be obtained without a hood being attached to it?

Any info would be great. Don't hesitate to e-mail me.

Wrong way....
Get the 22B vents. This way you will reduce front end lift while cooling off the underhood area.

The vents work by drawing all that air that went through the radiator out and then over the hood. Otherwise this air goes under the car and causes front end lift...

Oh yeah, the RS needs them. I have my vents open. That scoop is there to wait for a turbo for an intercooler. I agree that the scoop is cosmetic, but hey, it's heritage...

Also, where is the intercooler for the 1.8T mounted? I test drove a 1.8T Jetta. Not bad! That one chip will boost it a bit. But I opted for AWD.

Stock IC is right in front of the passenger side front wheel. The opening on bumper vents right to it. Mine, however, is in the front.

I like AWD, but it is gonna take some time. Them parts ain't cheap:0

Thanks for the input on the scoop.
