Mark, have you tried your local Chevy dealer? Have the tech show you the manual on install or remove.Does anyone know how to remove the hood louver? It has some type of clip I have not seen before. If anyone knows please let me know. I want to paint the Torch red stripe on it but it's very difficult to mask when it's on the car. Aloha, Mark
I am a little confused about your idea for a hood scoop because the C7 hood louver is not scooping air into the engine bay, it is allowing air to exit and reduce lift.Aloha, As I am trying to paint my louver to match my stripes I found that the Carbon Flash is very unstable almost like an enamel and if you put laquer on it, your going to have big problems. Anyway since my louver has been off my car I wanted to find a new use for that big hole in the hood. It reminded me of my drag racing days. That got me thinking, I put on the vertical doors and what else could I do to make it cooler. I remembered my drag racing days and the Pro-Stock hood scoops were cool. So I decided to make a 3D mock up of a mini pro stock hood scoop that would be interchangeable with the louver. I built the 3D model that was in my head out of cardboard but when I get the fit and finish right I am going to lay it up in fiberglass. Just checking if any one else thinks this might be cool. Here are the photo's of my mock up.
And yes I built it from a printer box. Aloha, mark
yeah....I'd like to see that as well.Gotta link that explains that?
The air intake is down low and off to the side - any air coming out of the hood louvers is taking radiator heat up and away.Well, if you look at the configuration under the louver you will notice there is a channel to the Air Cleaner that allows for the Air cleaner to breathe fresh air from the front of the louver and the rear portion does channel out the heat.
