Ah!
Dzus fasteners.

What is with the silver snake?
Is that a long, center exiting, straight pipe exhaust?

Right..nor did it have the inner duct... Joel was thinking a typical hood scoop.

Greg is running the ArkansasMile this weekend...hopefully a report soon.

I could see that first picture scoop engine lid being hinged at the rear and perhaps being removable when rotated upwards and out of hinging anchoring system.
Just my thoughts. Fair amount of work to do that, but it is a race car.

I had actually noticed that it didn't have visible way to remove it and the hood didn't have any non-stock fasteners visible so the scoop would have hit the car when opening.

You need to get it open in a hurry sometimes. Fire or starter won't quit turning or... Tech Inspection by a responsible sanctioning body should take care of it.
