Hood Scoops

Any help on this topic would be great. (I no its kinda a involved question but i do need help)
I want to buy a hood scoop for my car (2000 grand am). So i was telling my friend about it and he told me how thier are a bunch of different kinds I didn't know that. He mentioned a Cowell Induction or a Ram Air hood and said i can also get them made from different material like fiberglass and such. So what kinds are out thier and what's the main difference.

Well, we don't want you here...to be honest, you're the one that's stuck up, by suming the whole of CF up by one response to your thread...Good going...

regardless of what the other guys said if your wallets a little bit thicker that most guys who improve there car i would personally go with carbon fiber its strong lightweight but a bit on the expensive side personally i would buy a replacement hood that already has a hood scoop on it just make shure it fits right because you dont want to cut it if it gets into your skin it hurts worse than gettin kicked in the nuts believe me i know i grabbed one that broke and it hurt like hell and it itches way worse than fiberglass

I honestly don't think a glue on would be that bad of an idea. I don't see his car greatly benefiting from a real ram air hood performance-wise. Seems like $ down the drain to me. If you want it to look real good it's going to cost some decent bread, just doesn't seem worth it to em for a 2000 Grand Am.

Dude, that response to Bronxie was totally uncalled for ... and your car's a peice of shit anyway, there's no reason not to give it a fake air scoop. Putting a good fiberglass scoop on a grand am would be like putting $300 running shoes on a paralyzed man.
Bonus--they're only 20 bucks or so.

I'd be a bit reluctant about getting carbon fiber...it scratches really easily.

What part were you refering to? I didn't particularly like what he wrote, mainly because he's opening old wounds so to speak. I guess the bit about trainers on a paralysed man is inapropriate....and the car being a POS?..lol, what the hell, I'll ignor him this time...

I thought it was because he said "putting $300 running shoes on a paralyzed man."
What? So it's okay to do that for a woman? JP
