Good morning I am finally getting around to working out a solution to my intake location. It has worked fine but not a great location for the new engine. behind rad.

I will be adding a NACA scoop to hood - but this need to go someplace. fiber glass seems like only option. So I am working out size location etc.

This the start of this - I have never work fiber glass so I hope is work out ?

Card board to start and now styro foam inside mold method. Hood will come down to seal against the mold, and it will have a box type filter installed.

Any suggestions maybe considered?!

.Because this is not a Turbo Sprint, and not possible to feed my inlet. This is a 1990 GT !

The path of air from the hood to the let is the main purpose

Plus I do not like the stock scoop look.

Thanks
