cowl hood intake

i am interested in attaching a reverse facing cowl hood scoop on my jeep. I want to reduce heat(under the hood) and i like the look. Has anyone done this? Is it a bad idea? I would have to find a preettttyyy small one to fit my hood with hi-lift.

I would just use hood louvers.

Reverse facing cowl intake thread (on cowl):

An intake on the cowl wouldn't do anything for the heat under the hood.

If you're trying to lower the heat use the hood louvers.

The vents will drop you 12-20 degrees (engine compartment - NOT radiator cooling)
