Hi all,

I have some clearance issues and heating issues under my bonnet, i need a scoop that will cover most of the middle of the bonnet (using -12AN fittings for a custom catch can which is causing clearance issues)

my problem is, i DONT want to mould fibreglass to the metal bonnet, so i want a scoop that looks nice and fits on top of my bonnet. Nothing over the top i still want it to look a little subtle.

Show me some pictures of what you have and or Recommend!
the scoops that i like are mostly for commodores:

There is a scoop from Blitz kits on the gold coast that is a copy of a Toyota corolla import that I have seen on a black v8 EB/ED. I have the same scoop but I have it on an EL

Here is a pic of the scoop as I got it

I reckon it looks a little bit cheap to be honest...
What about a WRX scoop? Haha

Or get a hornet GT shaker?

i am not a fan of a scoop but i 'thought' i didnt have a choice.

I have found a -12an 120 degree fitting that has a very low profile bend, if this clears then i will raise the bonnet from the back and maybe even cut out the skin off the bonnet on top of the turbo to allow some heat to escape.

I don't know if you have access to boostedfalcon, but a bloke on there called Rollin cut vents in his bonnet which i actually thought looked quite good!
Only pic i could find of them without searching through his whole thread:

Hope he doesn't mind..

My bonnet would clear it I think.

Or how about this sort of scoop, XW? but in the middle?

lukeee, those vents look alright, how hard would that be to do? also, if you cut the shape out , would you have to re-inforce underneath the bonnet?

yeah i saw Rollin's bonnet, wit ha bit mroe precision i think thats a really good idea.

Benj, i thought the XW scoop had the opening on a bit of an angle??

i have spaced the bonnet at the back a little which has improved things slightly from a heat perspective... my bonnet is so dented now its not funny from that stupid -12 fitting (i dont knwo why the previosu owner thought -12 was a good size for catch can fittings but its there) will sort out my tune and look at my scoop options when im ready to do it.

thanks all!
