How to make a T/A scoop functionalIf you have an unmolested scoop and want to keep it original you may want to check Ebay for on to cut up.
Cover the soon to be open area with masking tape to protect the hood scoop.
Then drill holes around the "blackout" perimeter.

Finally epoxy a screen in of your choice to keep the leaves out.
Now that you have that done there is one more problem.

The K&N filter number is K/NE-1590 for Ram Air Pontiacs.
K&N also has an X-treme filter lid that will help air flow.
