Cool Hood scoop or new Hood

Is it better to get a nonfunctional hood scoop or a new hood with a functional scoop? Just wondering because I don't know how it would look does anyone have a nonfunctional hood scoop on their balt? I guess it probably doesnt make much of a difference but I just wonder how it looks. Thanks Guys

Well IMO it depends on the scoop, some scoops look good on some cars, while others look like crap. as far as the non-functional part, that can be fixed by cutting a whole in the hood, under the scoop. I myself, I want the carbon fiber hood with the scoop, but i cant afford it right now. anyway just my two cents worth.

Definitely save up and spend the money on the new hood. There's no point in a non-functional hood scoop.

depends...are you going more for the style. cause it's just some times a good look. if you get a small slotted scoop you can get inserts and you can't tell. It's a money saver if you want it now. personally it depends on how you go with it. good idea to save the money and get a functional one.

save your money. the only reason I'd ever go with a non functional hood scoop is if I was going for a certin look and couldn't find anything else. but there are a lot of hoods out the for the cobalt. A few members have tryed to get a group buy on hoods.

I have the same hood as posted above. Its functional, but only at cooling the engine bay. Honestly If you can deal with having a non functional scoop, I say do it. You'll save yourself a few hundred dollars.

I don't disagree with you but He has to understand that it is a lot of work. he has to get it painted too.

Don't let this change your mind just because it's a lot of work doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't do it. You just have to know what you're getting into.
