Agree, It's a base for us to mod if we so wish.........................DavidMidgley said:I'll take a plain hood to one with the silly scoop! And the side scoops can stay or go, I don't care one way or the other with those. I mean, look at our cars. They have the scoop delete, but it still has some stick on appendage that sole purpose is to cover the holes from the scoop. I can take my 08.5 to a body shop and remove the scoops for less than mess with maintaining the scoop covers for the first couple years while I pay the car off.
