RPI scoops haven't been PROVEN to interfere with cooling...period. My car runs the exact same temps as it did before. Does it make power? Don't know...don't care, as it would be impossible to feel an improvement under 10HP any way. I figure it can't hurt anything, and for a $100...what does it matter?

Hmmm, funny that there was discussion directly from RPI about higher temps...
