Yea, I did the same thing.  I always wanted to avoid
cutting sheet metal, modding body parts.  Once you get
into it, you realize it's usually unavoidable.  You
don't want to do a hood scoop IC, they don't work very
well, and get heat soaked easily.  You'll most likely
end up making a new front crossmember.  I'm always
imrpessed with Marc's IC install.
