Default Post Pics of your Hatch with scoops

I am trying to decide what way I would like to install scoops on my engine hatch. I need clearance and decided to go with scoops. I just need to think about what scoop to use and placement ie.. facing forward or backward, or getting a scoop that has a rear cutout. Lets see what you have and what kind of scoop it is. Most have mentioned facing the scoops to the rear for noise reasons and to keep water out. This will be on my Formula 357.

Thanks

I have a 382 hatch with scoops I am taking off and replacing. See thread in Formula section for pics. Audiofn has first dibs if it will work for him, otherwise available if it will work for you.

I have only seen rear facing scoops on some fountains and a 399 Skater V but there is probably more boats with them. don't know the reason for it.

I think hood scoop are sweet, but my lady will not let me buy a boat with them. I imagine a lot of other owners wives feel the same..... which could hurt the resale value. Love the boats with two different engine hatches - one with scoops, another with the sunpad. Just my .02
