Anyone have a ram air hood that dumps into your air raid?
 
I am considering a new hood with functional scoop. It is designed to dump air right on the air raid. I'm not sure how the car would handle this but it seems like a great Idea to dump air in the airbox.

Anyone have any XP with this issue?

This is the thread with the hood I am considering.

Wouldn't that also dump water right in?

No, the water is channeled to the area by the front latch. I have an ADM Race CAI but I've opened it up and put rubber sealers around it to get the air from my RK Sport air induction hood. I think it works ok, but have no numbers to prove anything...

ACS have functional sccops that direct the cold air into your cold air box, with water drain holes. They look great!!

We design our hoods following OE standards; actually our RTM process has been specifically developed for hoods. One of the spec's being water management.

This is our Nickey Chicago Inner

Many aspect to consider when buying a hood,

Safety, Fit and finish, Is it prepped, what material is it made of .. ... of course styling being customer's first interest.. hood replacement design is not as simple as it may seem.

Enjoy the purchase, choosing is the funnest part ! So many cool options out there.

i have a Ram air hood (suncoast) with an Airaid intake. Zero problems!

Would there be enough of an increase in performance to make it worth the money though?

Dragom here in Indy has that functional hood and he loves it! Now he just got the Airaid a few weeks ago and just got his V2 tube a week or so ago but when I spoke to him at our Meet & Greet this past July 10th, he said he liked the performance. You would have to get with him on it though. I do know he said he could tell the difference between the V1 tube and the V2 tube but I can't say what the hood is doing for him.

I say hit him up in a PM and get his thoughts. I took this pic of his Rally Yellow at our meet last weekend. I think he got his hood from PMD out of Coatsville, IN

Wow. That pic above is how the SS should have looked!

Will the OEM rally stripes be able to be applied to this new hood?

I doubt it. with the indentation for the scoop, the lines on the inside wouldn't match up.

asmith10 07-27-2010 02:02 PM

Hmm well how would we go about putting stripes on then besides having them painted on?
