V8 and....

Installed a TJ hood scoop on mt YJ. Worked out pretty good and fits nicely.
Need to get that V8 something to breath. Can drive it all day long up hill down hill and 90mph freeway speed, stays at 205 - 210. Very happy with it. Also, finished my interior. All I have left is the 4x4 electronic TCase shifting.

Just so I'm clear, you got just the scoop and attached it to your original hood?
I like that A LOT. Very nice.
Can I ask were you found a scoop?

I'm actually surprised they haven't outlawed going outside yet since the sun really does cause cancer.

The vent looks good. What kind of temps were you seeing before the vent?

Temps were about the same. On the freeway at about 80 - 85 at 100 degrees outside, it climbed to about 220. Now, it stays at about 205 all day long.

Hey Manny, if you get around to it, could you post some additional photos? Maybe from the front and the underside of the hood? I would find that interesting.
Thanks, and no issues if you're busy.

Sure can. Front, inside and under the hood. The only cut you have to make is the top one, bottom one is just to clear my engine covers.

Thanks for the pics.
I have yet to see any proof that, with the opening as you have it - by the windshield - vents air or draws air from flow off the windshield.
I think I'm going to tape some yarn or ribbon on various places on my hood and see where the air moves.
Can you tell what's going on with yours while moving down the highway?
And do you notice any flex in your hood with the X braces removed?

The scoop is closed on the rear. Air moves thru two tunnels in the scoop itself and out on the two side vents in the scoop. The scoop is double layered with its own air channels. The scoop is not to draw air in but to let the hot air out.
No flexing at all. The scoop is as hard as metal.
