    I've still got some more work to do on the heads, before they go back on the block, and then have the engine back in the truck, but I figured I would start planning this in advance.
    I've been looking around at functional hood scoops. I like the look of the 442 scoop by GoodHood [​IMG], but then I'm thinking I might like to see a shaker scoop popping out of my hood instead. So I'm a little torn on this. It's difficult to get a feel of how this looks from this picture since it's only the very front end.

    Right now my truck is rock stock, plain boring in appearance.

    My questions to you all is, who's seen a Suburban with a functional hood scoop, and did it look ok?
    Also has anyone seen a Suburban with a shaker scoop, and how did that look?

    I don't plan on going all out on my 'burb I just want to give it a little attitude.

    I'm not certain if I've seen a suburban with a functional hood scoop. I think that looks pretty tough though, I like the look!

    You should photoshop it onto your ride to see what it would look like.

    Remember the old 400 small block in the 77 trans am, I've always wanted to do a "shaker hood" on a truck might not be to hard to do??

    For the most part the scoops that everyone is selling are non-functional. Molded plastic that you stick on with double sided 3M tape. I'm really looking for something that can be used in conjunction with a ram air system.

    Besides it would be my luck that the stick on hood scoop would come off at highway speeds....lol

    I should have said in my previous post that Functionality is my primary concern, and attitude would just be a fringe benefit.

    LOL... That's pretty much what I'm thinking. But I'd hate to make it, fit it on the truck, and find out it looks retarded.:confused:
    I think Steve has the right idea, photoshop it onto a pic of my rig first.

    but I'm wondering how many other have either done it, or seen it done.

    The more I think about it, I'm getting more drawn to the shaker scoop.:cool:

    Still open to suggestions, and comments:biggrin:

    I am a little biased, but I prefer the Shaker. I saw a Chevy truck with a shaker and fender scoops from a Trans Am grafted in and it looked good.
