Grille inside scoop...

Has anyone replaced their scoop?

 

What did you do about the black fake grille? SAI has instructions for mounting the new scoop, but never mentions the grille.

 

(There are no holes or other provisions for it.)

I had the grill removed when I replaced the scoop and cut the hood to make it functional. Puts cooler air right on top of my supercharger. Sitting at a light you can see the heat coming out of the scoop.

I'd like to know about this myself. My question is, is it difficult to remove from the outside after scoop install?

From what I can tell, if you installed the scoop w/o the grille, you could (very carefully!) drill three holes into the backing, put some glue on the dowels and then push it in.

 

Otherwise, you could cut the three rubber dowels off and epoxy the grille to the backing.

Can you post some pictures of your scoop modifications ... It sounds super cool.

My question is the other way around...can the grille be removed easily w/out damaging it or the scoop? How is it attached to the scoop?

The grille is mounted to the scoop via three dowels with single thread nuts.

 

If your scoop is the original style with the eight bolts, take it off for access to the three dowels/nuts.

 

If the scoop has the twenty five rivets, you'd have to drill them out to remove the scoop.

 

I suppose if you really wanted to remove the grille w/o removing the scoop, you could get the measurements of the dowels and drill through the grille with a large bit, therefore detaching the dowels from the grille.

 

Even with the grille gone there is still a backing plate that would block a lot of the opening. You could cut it out, but it could affect the rigidity of the scoop.
