Cool Custom Hood Scoop and Air Intake/Snorkel for my HEMI

Here is my new custom hood on my XK:





Ok, seriously, I am making a new mod to my XK. Installing a cowl induction hood scoop and redirecting the air intake to it.

Taking measurements and checking clearance. My friend Trini is going to mold it into the hood, paint it silver to match and add a little custom airbrushing to it.

VERY NICE! I really like the retro-muscle look it gives it. Cannot wait to see it all finished up and airbrushed.

I think it's going to look good. As long as it's blended in well.

I had started collecting parts to do a cowl induction hood scoop prior to the completion of the snorkel and prior to blowing my engine. When they actually finished the snorkel I was interested and went back and forth as to which way to go. But after playing with the hood scoop and looking at the snorkel pics, I decided to try something completely different.

Are you planning on trimming the overhang above the cowl area? It looks a little excessive and might look better if it was trimmed even or slightly behind the vertical rise.

And are those ghost flames I'm seeing?

there are several function reasons that part is there but I think it looks good. one thing is it keeps the rain out when your not moving.
