Hey everyone,
i was wondering if you could swap a standard EF bonnet for a EF XR6 bonnet without having to swap all the headlights and such?

any details would be much appreciated

Mate if you can find a cheap XR bonnet with scoops, I wouldnt tell anyone, cuz it would go faster then ice cream at a fat mans buffet.

I dont think you need to change hte headlights or anything else, 99% sure.

i already have a body kit sitting in my shed that i baught about a month ago.
I wanted a bonnet but might have to see what i can do about putting some xr air scoops into a normal ef bonnet..

might just buy a second hand bonnet from the wreckers and chop that up. Incase i f**k it up it won't matter.

any one got any details on how to put air scoops in?

all help much appreciated

the xr bonnets from ef/l are the same shape as the standard ef bonnet...
you could just get the flute from ssv in sydney or wereva else and put them on the ef bonnet...
you would have to cut holes in the bonnet were the flutes go...
