    Hello All!

    Well here's what I did yesterday. Trying to be more productive whilst I am laid off. Trying to prep my car for an engine swap so that when I do find an engine it will be easier. So I pulled the battery tray and tinkered around yesterday....

    The result:

    Comments? And it survived over night in my ghetto ass neighborhood, we'll see if it lasts the weekend :(
    If not I'm camping out in my yard with my paintball gun and a bat.

    It looks like you have a dent in the middle of the hood at the crease. I am not digging the scoop. Unless its functional ditch it. Its not even centered.

    unless you are going to restore the whole car, i would let it be a commuter. that car needs a lot of work. worry about a swap when you have a job and more money.

    Jeef0 there is a massive dent in the hood. Not a major concern for me :D And although it isn't functional at the moment it sits directly in a space in the "webbing" on the underside of the hood. I will probably cut it later, but I need to seal the scoop down to the hood a bit first.
    95b16- Yes this car needs work. No I will not give up on it, it was my first car and it will be receiving turbo treatment. The point is its supposed to look like shit and confuse the hell out of people.

    eg6sir- didn't even know these hoods existed, and that's a weak ass scoop anyway. I get like +5 hp with this thing.

    Thanks for the feedback, even if you guys don't like it :)

    95 b16- thank you for your kind words and understanding :D

    Eg6Sir- You probably own (a) nicer car(s) than me and would never do this to them. I do not have a ricer mentality (ok maybe a bit :D) but my quest is for real performance. I'm kind of limited as to what I can do with this thing at the moment, and before this my hood was primer grey with rust coming through... so you decide which looks better (or should I have gone for the "rusted hood" like VWs? ) :D

    The scoop is a little silly....but new cars are doing it all the time (fake scoops)

    My dad has a Tacoma pick-up and it has a fake ass scoop on it.

    I would say "Fail" on the looks of the scoop. It perpetuates the image of a silly ricer who thinks he is obtaining performance increase with mod's like a wing and a cool hood.

    If you want to be a sleeper...then sleep. If you want to confuse people....sleep.

    I say take the scoop off and primer the whole car black...on black steelies and then do a swap so you can actually confuse people when they try to stomp you.

    Make it for "GO" not for "In the process of Show"

    Well this is it for the "Show" aspect except for the Si front lip, and maybe some of those 5 spoke integra rims if I can find them for cheap...

    haha not the scoop :p Like I said, the purpose of the hood/scoop is to confuse people. Shit man, I should have taken pictures of the "4x4 off road" stickers that are on the rear quarters!!!! :D

    Just try to imagine this car slaughtering a camaro and it should all make sense...

    no bubbles bursted here :D

    I don't think it'll confuse people....rather just something to laugh at.

    Thread is from 2009 dude. Next time, pay attention to the dates. It's sometimes ok to post on old threads if you're adding relevant info that people can search for and use, but no need to bring back threads from years ago just to add insults or pointless comments...
