    does anyone make a piece to mount under the hood going to the intake to make the hood scoop functional?

    The hood is functional to the fact that it is blowing cold air onto the supercharger, keeping intake temps down.

    If you stole all the air I would believe that the supercharger would run much hotter.

    You got it. The headlight air intake would be tough to improve on. Some air turbulence present near hood surface can cause some air to bypass the hood scoop where all air at the headlight is slammed right in.

    Why didn't the Charger have a cold air intake?

    It does, it is in the same location, just not "exposed" as it sits behind the mesh grill. We just can't suck in a bird.

    A good addition would be to pipe the passenger side headlamp to the air box.

    This supposedly is designed in the Challenger T/A concept.

    Yep, already answered. The scoop assists in cooling, the false aux light is the inlet for air to the supercharger.

    Everything is functional.

    I don't plan to drive it in the rain but if caught in a rain storm, it seems like the scoop on my Charger will let a lot of water get in and it's bound to go between the hood and the hood pad...I think you need to be prepared to block off the hood openings in case of rain.

    If you're worried about sucking water into the intake, there's a hole in the bottom of the air box to let the water out

    LOL

    I don't know which part is funnier. "I don't plan to drive it in the rain" or the assumption that water coming into any of the inlets will cause any kind of harm to the car.

    I've driven mine in torrential Texas downpours without issue. It's a car, it's made to be driven in all weather.

    LOL (second one... just for security)

    And protip: Never block off any openings on your car, unless you want to overheat in record time.

    I'm talking about water coming through the scoop and getting under the hood pad

    What i wish someone would make would be some sort of covers for the air exhaust grilles and the intake port on the hood for when im washing the car. I have to wipe it all down under the hood every time i wash it. I Try not to spray directly into them but still...
