Default hood scoop or not to hood scoop

if your flame arrestors are the shortest ones available for your carb, and are already touching your hatch, and you want to add 10-71s with intercoolers. so we are either going to add some tall azz hood scoops or cut holes, finish out and leave it open so well have the blowers sticking up out of the hatch. if our boat is kept in fresh water, with a building covering it, and a waterproof cover, what are the pros and cons of a scoop or leaving the blower, carbs, flame arrestor open? thanks

yeah we were looking at getting monstaa to make something out of billet with the cig logo to go in the scoop intake so it would still allow air, but keep foreign objects out

You either need to scoop them, or get a race hatch.

Here's pictures of a guy that went from scoops to a race hatch. I think the race hatch looks a thousand percent better.

Who makes a hatch like that? Is it a custom job or did the guy get it through the manufacturer?

yes but what hes talking about will not fit under a hatch like that, I'm going thru the same scenario. adding 871s and innercoolers. the scoops will have to be so tall they will look like crap.

It came off another Dominator, I'm not sure, but I think he got it from the factory, then sent it to Mitcher T to have it painted.

That's sharp, but he looses the use of the swimplatform in the conversion.
