T/A Hood Venting System ala Mopar 10 is HERE!!

My T/A hood vent system is finally here! Hopefully it works so i can stop saying "no, it isn't functional..." Here's a few pics, more later after I get it installed.









Thanks!
Scott

Here's some install pics. So far everything has fit perfectly, though I did decide to replace the foam between the two pieces with double sided tape. I will finish up everything tomorrow and post some more pics. So far the only issue has been 2 Right grills and NO Left grill, but the dealer is taking care of it for me so no worries.


















Thanks!
Scott

Glad to see it actually fits on the TA hood. I was worried about that. I may have to go buy one now. Can you tell any difference after the install? or is it negligible?

It fits the standard T/A hood fine, but as you can see from the pics it's not "plug & play" on the early style hoods. From looking at the instructions, I'd guess the newer hoods are ready to accept this venting system with no drilling or cutting. I haven't had a chance to drive it yet, but to me I'll just be glad to say "yes, it's functional" when asked. I doubt it will make a huge difference, but I'm sure it will help send some cooler air into the intake.

I understand, I made the cuts to my hood (very similar to yours, but with a different saw-mine went all the way back to a point) before i installed the scoop to start with, knowing i'd make it functional somehow. The arm itself is the hard part in my fabrication, still working on a solution. The mopar box looks more built to fit.

That looks clean. The only thing I would be worried about is the plastic rivets holding the baffle in place. They are decently strong but I heard of one of those T/A scoops being torn off the hood that wasn't functional.

Edit: I see you added double sided tape for precaution.

Here's the pics of us installing the tube:







Here you can see how nicely it lines up with my CAI:



I'll post the final pics once I get the correct vents for the scoop (the box came with 2 Rights and NO Left).

Thanks!
Scott
