LarryJewell said:Just got the fender scoop added for more cold air, also added the Volant Intake "wrapped the tube in header wrap", sealed off the inner fender to keep hot engine compartment air out of the intake and will be adding the Volant Lower intake scoop as soon as the UPS guy brings it. I dogged it fairly hard at lunch today in stop and go traffic and I couldn't get the Big fan to come on, So I they this was a worthwhile mod. IAT's are way down, averaging less than 10 degrees above outside temperature on the highway and only 20 - 25 deg. above outside temp in heavy stop and go traffic.
While the fender scoop is cut into the fender, only the outer surface was removed, there is still middle section still intact which vents downward and has several smallis holes in the middle areas. The scoop is moved back far enough that I hope not to suck in water when it rains, it looks to be protected. I'll find out later in the week, "rain is coming".
My understanding is that with the inner sections sealed off, and I used reflective dynomat to do this, a pressurized cold air source has been created.
The last photo kinda shows how the interior should be protected from rain.
Ups guy just dropped off the lower scoop, that will go on tonite.

Do you have any pictures of the hole you cut out of the fender - how did you cut the hole and how did you mark the proper location?
Also - you mentioned about an inner part with holes already made - is this the black area seen in the pictures with the holes? If you have any pictures of this it would be helpful.
I would like to make the same mod!
Also, what type of paint did you use for the scoop?
can't hurt. Consider though the shear volume of air that runs through the stack, 4000 cfm, 6000 cfm with the fan engaged.LarryJewell said:Do you think using the fender scoop reversed on the driver side might help evacuate hot under hood air, I am asking this with the assumption that the stack seal and nose shroud is also being utilized.
