here is a reason to justify keeping the stock hood.

1. when you go to sell/trade your car and you need to put it back to stock, you dont have to trade for, or buy another stock silver hood. You can just sell the c/f and put the oem hood back on

I say do what you want to do, if you want to put a cowl scoop on, go for it, but if everyone on nt rips you a new one, just know why. Personally i say go for it, i always like seeing people try slighty new/ seldom done things.

i gues i should have made my self alittle more clear what i was wanting to do is make room for a top mount intcooler so when i started this thread i was think more along the lines of a STI hood scoop and not so much the cowl, my liitle turbo project has enough piping in it!! and theres no real clear root for a FMIC on or at least what i see, and this was all just in theroy, like i said ive got a nice CF hood! anf the old hood is going to be sled or garbage becuase i cant find anything to do with it and its taking up space, im not really worried about resale or trade in just wanted something that looked cool and never seen one, yes i do like that red cowl, but not enough to justify getting rid of my CF hood and moddifying my old one !! looks like i got an expesive sled for this winter!!

Cowl hoods are for carbed enjines. Its such bad form on a fuel injected engine. Just like putting 20" rims on a Civic is bad form.
