Somehow I don't think that hood scoop is real

14 posts in this topic

Let's consider the merits of this, er, remarkable piece of handywork.

 

1. It doesn't do anything.

2. It's wrong way round.

3. It's a ****ing paint tray.

4. It's not in the middle.

5. It's on a really shit car.

 

Apart from that it's fine. :P

At least the fake scoop didn't go into production like the stupid one on MINI's!

My mate has a Cooper S and the scoop feeds cold air over the turbo.

Gen 2's are fakes/blocked.

What?  Why block off something that actually has a purpose?

Given most turbos are water/oil cooled, it wouldn't have really been doing much anyway.

The only reason we know that it was effective is that he re routed it to feed his AEM filter and the cover plate over the turbo then melted a bit.

You're all so dumb! It's not a hood scoop, it's a bonnet bulge to accommodate the whopping engine that didn't fit under the standard hood.

 

:rolleyes: You people
