I'm thinking it would be best to mount it to the hood. How should i go about this though?
You basically screw it to the bracing. As you know, it goes in from the underside of the hood, you'll center it to the hole and level it side to side and front to back. This might take some shimming w/some foam, etc. between the scoop and hood.

The scoop could be trimmed to make it more symmetrical as seen when the hood is open (one side is squared, the other rounded). I didn't trim mine, though, so the scoop could be used as a shaker again some day.
