Intake scoops?

Do those hood intake scoops do anything? I've got some scrap stainless laying around and thought about fabbing some up, but I'm not gonna do it if they don't do anything for me.

Thanks In Advance.

From what I hear you get a small increase in blower output, more at highway speeds.

It's suppose to help out your heater blower blow more air, but not more heat. Chris Davis fabbed a few prototypes a few years back and I have one of them. But with the winter here in the north east + a soft top 90... I really didn't notice the blower output (if any). They kinda look cool though and a great conversation piece...

I have one and like it. The air flow decreases the amount of time that I have the fan on while driving, though I don't notice a difference with the fan on high. The main reason I got mine though was to keep the intake vent from getting plugged with ice & snow while parked outside all day in the winter.

another option is a radiator muff from RN, I think you would get more heat faster from a cold start

You could just put a piece of cardboard in behind the grill to have the same effect, we do it all the time up here in winter

Also helps to keep snow from clogging up your heater inlet.
