I am doing it so when you open the hood, the scoop comes up with it. I was planning to run a open element 14" round air cleaner on the engine since I dont think I have the correct base for it anyway. I just wanted the scoop to come up, out of the way when you open the hood.
I was just curious. My Air cleaner sit inside of my shaker, so mine is glued to the hood too. Whoever glued mine used brown epoxy (like they use to attack the hood braces to the hood) but its due to come off soon.
