not trying to be picky, but for some reason 88mm sticks in my mind. But noe the less, nice looking intake. Just a bit big for me :)

It does seem a little large. other than that it a really cool idea. Id love to do it to my XR8. Just the time factor, and actually getting a scoop is the hard part. If they were avaiable for purchase somehwere it'd be on my list.

What are these scoops made of ??

This is directly from the QLD Department of Transport Modification Guide

Bonnet scoops
Bonnet scoops/projections may be fitted to a vehicle
provided the driver’s vision is not restricted under
normal operating conditions with the driver’s seat
located at its lowest and rearmost position.
Bonnet-mounted scoops/projections must meet the
following requirements:
• When a 165mm diameter sphere is placed on the
bonnet in front of the scoop (or bonnet projection)
and rolled backwards until it touches the scoop, no
forward point of the scoop or point of contact between
the sphere and the scoop must lie above a horizontal
plane passing through the centre of the sphere.
• It shall be possible to see either the surface of the
road 11m in front of the driver’s eye or all of the front
edge of the original body when looking across the top
of the bonnet scoop. For the purposes of this
requirement, the driver’s ‘eye’ position can be taken
as being a point 730mm above and 270mm forward
of the junction of the seat cushion and seat back with
the seat in its lowest and rearmost position.
• The edges at the front of a scoop/projection shall be
rounded with a minimum of 10mm radius.
• All other edges and corners shall have a radius of not
less than 5mm and be designed to reduce the risk of
bodily injury to any person to a minimum.
• The scoop/projection must not have reflective surfaces.
• Any holes in the bonnet must not substantially reduce
the strength or impact resistance of the bonnet.
• Air cleaners or carburettors must not protrude
beyond the original bonnet profile unless the bonnet
scoop/projection is manufactured from equivalent
gauge mild steel, compared with that of the original
bonnet.
• Air cleaners and/or carburettors must be covered by
the bonnet scoop.

Well my apologies then 80Crm. I stand corrected. I was thinking in Southern States the Laws might be different maybe?
