    SS hood on Z28

    is it possible to convert a non functional SS hood on a 2000 Z28, to make it functional? A few years back, I bought a Z28 with a non functional SS hood, and, if possible, would like to make it functional. any ideas on how to do this, if possible?

    I've never heard of a non-functional SS hood. I assume the opening to the scoop is closed? If so, then, if you have a cutting tool like a Dremel, and some cutting bits, it can be done. You will also need the airbox/hardware.

    My understanding is that the "opening" actually directs air toward the air filter (running it back toward the front of the car)... maybe those runners are missing from his hood?
