Default Question for anybody that has installed a Roush hood scoop

When you installed your scoop, did you do it with the hood on the car, or did you remove the hood to drill the 7 holes?

On the vehicle with a 135 degree drill bit.
Not the garden variety 118 degree wood bit....

Any more questions like how to remove the stubborn
christmas tree clips that hold the hood blanket on?

I did it with the hood on. Place a blanket or towel over your engine just in case you get some shavings. Most of mine were on the hood, I used a vacume and dabbed them up. The template was good, make sure the scoop is centered on the hood. Good luck and post pictures!

Hood on car. I didn't actually do it, the body/paint shop guy did but I was right there the whole time he did it.

Hood On.
Make sure to cover the engine and remove the hood liner. I've seen a few people drill through the hood liner. Looks like crap

I didn't even drill it. I just used the 3M prep stuff and stuck it to the hood. Hasn't budged. This is how many body panels pieces are attached too. No issues... Granted I mounted mine in reverse so its slightly more aerodynamic, but I don't believe for a minute that having it "scooping" when positioned forward will make it break off and fly away. Its closed off. That thing is stuck on there like crazy.
