Default Hood scoop or bread pan

Thought i would give you guys something to laugh at here. If you seen my post in the diy turbo section you seen that i screwed up and got the turbo to tall and had to cut a hole in the hood. so sticking with the diy frame of mind i went to wal-mart looking for an idea for a scoop, i found a bread pan....

That's some funny ****. Ingenuity is measured by one's ability to learn and adapt. You did well on this one.

The Professor says, that the orientation of your bread pan makes it a vent, not a scoop. Its the bread vent.

haha that is pretty original......and I really doubt a tach/gauge would work in that location for long being so close to the turbo and its heat

The cut in the pan is beautiful, the cut in your hood is jagged... what happened?

The "glass" won't care how jagged the cut is it's covering.
