Fun with a second hood

Found a used hood for 05-07 on craigslist for $75. picked it up last night. I didnt realize the hoods are so big i had a heck of a time getting into the back of my ZX3. Even with the rear seat delete it was a struggle to get it in.

Anyway, anyone have any ideas? i was wanting to hack it up.

I was thinking about trying to put a reversed scoop in it like that focus sport hood. Or some vents?

Not wanting the traditional scoop like on the Roush, but something more over the throttle body on one side.

I wanna do this really bad, have you thought about the peugot hood scoops? They're more subtle and actually serve a purpose. They would be either top left or right of the hood for airflow (top right for a focus for the intake)

These are the only 2 ive found that i like on the focus and both are super rare.



The first one looks to be easier of the 2

I'd be looking into the Escort RS hood vents; they look friggin' B.A.!

I just don't understand why the oversized-hood thing is popular; I see it mostly with the 'Dubbin' crews around my way.

I'd rock a boser hood, I haven't see one on a 05-07 though.

My friend wanted to mess around and make a boser hood on my car, but I couldn't find a spare. Plenty of Focus' in the junkyards around me, but every one of them seem to have rear ended someone.
