I'm trying to find out if those wild air induction kits that go over the roof are still being sold or if anyone has a used set for sale. I have seen pics of them hereon the site. I have contacted jimmysautomotiveandcustom.com (used to be fieroconversions.com) who used to sell them but so far no answer.

Does anyone have any info or maybe a pair for sale?

Were you looking for the single over the roof scoop similar to the Indy style or the dual over the roof scoops that come out of each side of the rear deck lid Fi-Air-O style?

I have the side vents on my 85 notchback so I am looking for the two vent version. I have seen the single vent version but those must have been made for centervent deck lids. I have not seen one of those around here. When were the center vent deck lids made 84?

This is their website:
http://www.jimmysautomotive....com/accessories.htm email Sue at fieroconversions@aol.com for further information.

Also have front spoilers regular $225 for $150. Side lower quarter panels regular $285 for $200. Let me know if any of these items interest you. Thanks Sue 5192593886"

The deck lid on the 85+ can be modified to fit the center indy scoop. Don't get the side vent ones. For one the vents on the 85+ are ment for air escape not air intake. And they look funny

Some of the center scoops used to be specified for the 85 and later coupes. Mine from the 80's was already modified. I am not use if any of the reproductions are still this way.

You have to watch them, I have one on my IMSA (original DGP one) and when put on a fastback or 85+ notchback it sits to high off the roof.

The Indy scoops are cut to fit whichever decklid they are going on. Jim Sutter provided specific written instructions with diagrams with the molds on how to fit and install the interior plates that the strut mounts to. For the fastback decklid, an inch gets cut off the entire bottom of the scoop, and on the notchbacks, 85-88, the cut is angled from the front, (starts at an inch and tapers to about the middle), and on the 84 notchback, the bottom is left intact as it comes from the mold.

If you have an Indy scoop on a fastback and it sits too high above the roof, it was made to fit a notchback originally and hasn't been cut to properly fit a fastback. The inside plates, (the strut mounts to these plates), are also positioned in accordance with which decklid the scoop is being made for.

Of course, there are people other than Fierowarehouse (IRM molds) who make an over the roof scoop, so I can't speak to how theirs are set up, but I've briefly outlined the instructions that we were given with the IRM molds.

HAGO!

I believe that someone was advertising a pull it yourself vehicle in the General section this afternoon. One of the pictures showed some type of over the roof scoop.

That looks like a standard scoop for a dragster that's been molded into the Fiero decklid.
