Do we really need the hood scoop? Is it going to hinder the aerodynamics of the car? Some people say it for cooling the engine, some say it's for downforce, but do we really need it? Is there any future problems by driving without one? I thought of the idea when i was changing the oil so...just bare with me.

No you don't need it. Yes it will somehow affect the dynamics of the car. Yes its for cooling the exhaust manifold, no its not for downforce. Why would you be staring at your hood scoop when u change your oil, shouldn't your attention be under the car?

i had the same problem as you, which is why on my oil pan, when i did the rebuild i drilled a aditional hole, and welded a place on the other side for a drain bolt to go into. smart eh :p:

hmm...so let me sum it up, no scoop = less drag, less lift, holes on the hood, doesn't match, it's stupid, sound stupid, looks stupid, your stupid, driving without the front end, car will explode, something about the drain bolt, and finally FL is worst than SOCAL. Thanks for the inputs guys.

Drive up on some boards that gradually step up, it will give you all the clearance you need so you dont have to take anything off.

Why are you changing your oil from the side of the car? I would think attacking the drainplug straight on would be much less of an awkward angle..considering there is that thing called a tire in your way.
