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.

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)
