Has Anyone seen One of these Style Bonnets made for the X series Falcons?.

Curious to know if someone makes a version for an XG Ute before I start cutting and building one.

Th only ones I've seen have been where someone has slapped a A9X/Cobra scoop onto the stock bonnet, nothing as integrated as your example

No one make them in steel for the XF/XG. You will need to do your own.

Reverse cowl link below:

If and when you cut into the bonnet, be careful of cutting the bonnet bracing without reinforcing it or reinstalling it.

You can either weld in something like tghe XB GS/GT Scoops (or even use a BA XR6 Bulge) or Bolt on a reverse cowl like the XC Cobra or bond on a Fiberglass Cowl like the link above.

Yeah I've seen the fiberglass / Plastic setups before...the whole Point is to provide the bonnet clearance for a FG twin Cam in the XG...I like the old GM style Cowl Induction Bonnets and think they'd look pretty good on the XG Utes...I guess I'll have to get a Bonnet and start drawing and getting some metal to modify...I'll be sure to post it if I do it.

Thanks for the Info guys!
