    I had one on my old K5, and plan on putting another one on this one. I actually put in a roof vent intstead of just the scoop. Maybe I just like the WRC rally/ricer stuff. LOL /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think something like this. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I had one of these with a working vent. Actually works pretty good when the AC went to crap. Works on that 4/40 principle. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have thought about mounting one of those roofmounted vents in the rear, like one of those that raise and lower.

    I have the barn doors, and I do not like the lack of extra ventilation....

    Is it for ventilation or would you actually run ductwork through your firewall to your intake? basically an unexposed snorkel.

    They are for ventilation here is a pic of the actual vent. [​IMG]
    I'm not sure of the ones I posted but the one I used before needed a little bit of basic body work to get it to look perfect. Im going to be using the ones I posted and they dont look to far off.
