Here's the scoop

Or at least the parts for the project. I picked up a spare hood last week, luckily it's already stone white. Ordered my Mopar pro stock scoop and it came in Monday, so I set it on the hood to get a image of how it will more or less look when done (and yes, I know its sitting a little off center to the left for all the perfectionists out there LOL!). It's going to be fully functional and ducted to the throttle body so the 4.0 stroker can suck in all the cool air it can stand. I'm working on a heat resistant tub for an air cleaner, similar to the old six pack scoop and air cleaner set up. I think it looks awesome, it definitely has a pro stock look to the car, some may not like it and some will. Stay tuned for more as the scoop gets installed.

Here's a side view, it's not real good because of the shadows under the carport. I lightened it up a little so you could see the profile a little better. And yes, I am looking forward to joining the scoop club, and the 4.0 club, and the 1st G manifolds club.

I think that will be very nice once it is all done.
What is the plan for doing the work on it?

I need to determine for sure how I'm doing the air cleaner and the tub underneath, I want to block the engine heat from being sucked in. I should have enough room on top of the upper plenum to set the base and filter, then a flat duct off the right rear corner (kind of like on a dodge truck if you've seen their stock intakes), then curve it into the TB. As far as finishing it, it will be bonded and fiberglassed in, then featherd out for a smooth transition to the hood. I'm considering some sort of paint treatment for the hood, maybe a black center encompassing the hood, with a narrow stripe on each side. Playing with ideas in photoshop right now.

I think painting it, or using vinyl to mimic the design found on the Daytona edition Chargers would look gorgeous on this car.

The front view got me excited, the side view kinda lost it for me - too downslopey

To help keep the heat away, you could place a shield from the top of the fans to the front of the upper intake manifold. The fans blow a ton of the heat from the radiator over the top of the engine as well as around the sides.
For lining the actual tub, there are a ton of heat shielding products out there. There are many that will do what you want

Same thing I was thinking. The front view looks mean as hell. Side, not so much, but hey, its functional, all that matters.

Just got back home from a long weekend getaway in Biloxi. May play with the hood and scoop this week, really want to get the bottom end of the engine finished up first. I'll keep everyone posted, and thanks for the comments both ways.

It depends. If you're inside looking out, its possibly the coolest thing you can do to your intrepid.

If you're outside, and a rice burner slacker, its a bonded on monstrosity of an abortion that causes laughs everywhere you go. Luckily, you are in group one. I followed your thread on the install.
