I'm planning a fairly large-a*** mod on my EF at the moment, I'm currently in the planning/budgetting phase.

If I can do it without sacrificing aesthetics it's going to involve a 302 Tickford with a fairly large-amount-of-boost supercharger w/blower.

Which brings me to my question - has anyone got pics of an EF with a cowl induction scoop, or the whole bonnet modded/custom made with one??

I kind of want to see what it will look like before I go ahead and build it.
