    Hood scoop/ Blower

    I want to get a hood scoop, but a special kind. I dont know what its called, but I think its similar to a blower, like in hot rods. I cant find any companies that sell blowers though. Its the same thing as the hood on the taxi in the movie TAXI. http://www.cinemanow.com/images/boxa..._movie_174.jpg
    In the pic it just looks like a bunch of tubes, but I want it more covered than that (more like a hood scoop.
    Can someone tell me what these things are called, Its been driving me nuts

    What? I was talking about that other thread. This has absolutly nothing to do with that. Is it a crime to want to put a hood scoop on your car?

    I take it this is what you mean? I'ts the throttle plates in front of usually a carb.

    I suppose you could do it with fuel injection, but it won't be a bolt-on mod

    Sure he can, he's a complete ricer so you know it won't be a real one. It will be used to hide his paintball guns and probably loaded with sparklers for extra "wow factor". Of course the intake flaps will be spring loaded ninja stars as well.

    I can see the news story now. "Boy dies after firing off ninja star hooked up in the wrong direction."
