"Large Structural Element" = "Hood Latch".. I thought it was functional until now.. I guess replacing the V8 bumper with the V6 one should be no problem for those that want it..

Nope - well, assuming they use some halfway normal method of securing the thing.

Ok...now even I call

You're sayin' that you own an 08 SRT Charger, but don't own a digital camera?? Ok, then....I know you have a cell phone, right? And I'm sure that has a camera on it. Problem solved.

Seriously....it's a gorgeous car and I'd love to see more pictures of it.

...and watch the language.

I'm confused. If that is your Charger, then why does it have Jersey plates in all the pictures on photobucket but your profile says you're in Philly?

Ah, nevermind. I also see that your only 17 and driving an SRT8. Yeah right....you might want to remove all the pictures in the photobucket account with the big ol' R/T badge that is defacing the front of your SRT8 model.

Lots of aftermarket ideas to use that fake scoop with. I'll put in a KIT scanning light in it.

Unfortunately this is an already played out idea.

Verdict: Scoop is nice.

Ah, but what about on a 505 hp car: the corvette Z06? yup, they complained about its fake scoop before the car hit the streets. Oddly enough, you don't hear too much complaining now.

IT'S FAKE?!?!?!?! OMG!!!!!

Are you serious!?!?!?!




I like the fact it's been included on the SS models. I hope there is a larger FUNCTIONAL hood scoop for the Z28 when it makes it's debut. I like the scoop. I wish they'd cut it out. I don't care if it feeds into anything or not. Just make it look good. We can always route a CAI from below the car at a high pressure area to the air box so it will get more hp. Just make it look good.

Bringing this subject back to life.
Check out the latest pic of the rad and the mail box slot.
Depending on what is in front of the slot I bet an after market company will develop an intake system to butt right up to it and instant cold air.
Looks like there will be a way. I think right in front of the slot is the grill also.

There's already been extensive discussion about this, and I'm afraid it will be as close to impossible as you can get without being absolutely impossible.

There is structure, unit body components, and the radiator top that runs directly between the slot and the curve of the air intake tube.

Unfortunately, the slot is just for show and it will only be for show.

Rad top and cap looks like you can get around ( over top of it ) I bet you someone will have a template to cut a hole through it.
Time will tell.

You cant satisfy everyone so they do a basic set up and whoever wants something can change it themselves...if they tried to satisfy every person who wants a camaro that would be chaos!


edit- back on topic...i think the scoop gives it a more agressive look but it woudl be great if it CAME functional...if i get the ss wont mind doing it myself....
