    Can the stock hood be opened at the center scoop. I assume the opening can't be ducted to provide fresh air to the supercharger but additional air to the engine bay might be a good thing.

    :) I guess I'll wait for more people to chime in but I thought from the underhood picture I saw, it wasn't. Cool if it is! I kind of thought it would be cheesy to have a hood like it and have a fake scoop. But then manufacturers have been doing it forever!

    It will be functional just like the SRT Hood it's open along with the functional heat extractors to help dissipate the heat

    The hood is open,, that's why it's there,, straight to the supercharger

    I read that the center inlet is to keep the supercharger and inter cooler fed with cool air and the 2 side grills are heat extractors

    The air intake is thru the left front inner headlight, ram air effect.

    The hood vent is to cool the supercharger
