His only issue is that the hood doesn't come with the inner liner as stock so this prevented him from getting the seal the Airaid design uses with that setup. I suggested he get some foam pipe insulation which he did and this closed off the inside of the box once the aftermarket hood is closed. He says he loveggs it!
Couldn't we just use the foam liner from the stock hood and simply cut out the hole where the fresh air comes in?

I had a 98 TA I Ram Aired with a Sun Coast Creations hood, and a 2002 WS-6 RAM Air....

Why would you want to channel the air to a side mounted intake? Does that not defeat the purpose of the Ram Air? It creates a restriction of air flow..... I see even the SC hood for the 5th gen is side discharge.

There is no water issue on the 4th gen Ram-Air, Both my Raptor hood and the OEM GM W-S6 hoods has baffles to keep water out.

SC Hood- 5th gen

Intake Box for 4th Gen

Or is it that there is just no room on the 5th gen for the air box in front?

Even if it won't be a complete ram air system, the hood does an excellent job of extracting heat from the engine compartment, and supplies ample amounts of cold air to the intake correct? The air coming through that hood should be much colder than the air you would get from the Injen IMO, and also has the benefit of a short ram air intake with the advantage of a true cold air intake.

I find no fault with that notion at all.... However when you compare a "possible 6-10 hp gain with the price tag of around 2100 bucks.... See where I am going with this?

Where I got 2100
Hood 900-1000 Plus 100 Taxes, plus 100 or so for shipping + 300-400 to have it painted (they arrive in gelcoat and need to be sanded and painted and fit), CAI 400 +tax...

Your looking at $200 + per 1 hp

I completed understand your view point on that, and I agree but I am also doing this for the aesthetic aspect of it as well. You have to admit its a pretty damn good looking Hood.

What part of Louisiana? Abbeville originally for me...

I am sure I will get some flack.. I have always preferred the TA look... This was my 98 TA with a SCC Ram Air hood. That hood made that car look like a beast...

In opinion.. and it is just an opinion... The Camaro hoods are a little too boxy for me..

The SCC hood looks a little softer in the angles... Has more roll to it, which I like.

Not a fan of the double mailslot. Would look nice with a V6 front though.

Wow nice pic. When I look at that i can just picture an evil red or white light in there for shows. We meet at night out here in ga due to the heat and I would love to get that hood. Thx for the picture.

I actually prefer the break up the mail slot provides.... . With out the MS the front end has no flow and looks bland... un attractive IMHO.... The top picture in the OP with the MB delete and the stripes looks pretty good... I just need something to break it all up.

But then again the hood in the top picture also has side walls and the scoop is actually farther back..

SFX hood with MS Delete


SFX hood with out MB Delete. ( much prefer this one)

I like the mail slot delete. I guess it is just what you are used to looking at.
