Hood hole
Hi there:
Now that I have installed the raised Hood scoop, i am wondering how will the water (lets say, from rain) is going to be deflected so that it doesnt go straight to the engine. I have this concern because the original Hood scoop comes with a metal panel/device that prevents the water from falling straight into the middle of the engine (of course, where the Hood hole is).
Please, any advice on this...

I run the water hose into that hole all the time... gotta keep it clean thumbsup

...open your Hood and you will see that it does NOT go into your engine, it goes down behind the exhaust maifold.

your engine is basically water proof already... but just dont drive it into a lake - because it is not LAKE/POOL-PROOF grin

The "Air Intake Guide", Toyota Part # 76182-20040 sells for about $13.75 at your local Toyota Parts department.

It protects against sticks and such from getting trapped through your exhaust manifold - it works similar to how a screen door works. it lets in air, but traps most large foreign objects from passing

ice blue..the Hood scoop is used to get air into the engine compartment for cooling. the piece they are talking about is a metal "wall" filled with holes that only allow very small objects (air) to get in while keeping larger objects out (bugs, leaves, twigs, little sister's barbies)
