So I'm thinking about building myself a SRI and cutting a hole into my hood and putting a scoop over top of it. I live on the coast right now, and it has a very bad habit of raining alot, so I was wondering if this is a bad idea or not.

If it was a cowl induction type then the rain wouldn't go in unless you are sitting still and you could put a small lip to stop that. Ram which faces opposite of cowl would cause a lot of rain intake. Usually these are for cooling the turbo more than air intake.

I would go look at a couple of autos that have real hood scoop intakes and go from there. Otherwise i think it's a cool idea...:D

if you plan on going turbo (which it says in your future mod list) why not wait and build a scoop over the turbo so it actually serves a purpose?
