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.

Reason: Added pics
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.
