Sage and I collaborated on some side louvers. He made them from fiberglass. They can be just screwed on after cutting a hole in the panel, or blended in. I have a pair left (a left and right side). On mine, I just put clips on the panel at four corners and screwed them on. I just took the screws out to remove the panel to change the cone air filter.

I have my DD at a body shop right now. I'm going to take one of my panels with me when I pick it up so I can ask him what needs to be taken into account for painting them to make sure they'll match the rest of the body when he paints it.

I got my scoops from the Fiero Warehouse today. I'm a fussy guy. My 87 has been my baby for 26 years. I expected the scoops to be a good design and quality workmanship. I have to tell you they are even better , in both respects, than I could have ever hoped for. I had them drill and slot the scoops plus install the screens. Money well spent. The grills can be easily removed for painting and fit really well. I wish they made an inside liner air hook up but I will have fun fabbing some. Very high quality product - very reasonable price! My Z28 cowl induction hood scoop should be here in a few days. Jegs has them for $129 with free shipping. They are just the right size to fit between the hood blisters. They should compliment the side scoops. Despite the -11 wind chill and my crapped out plow truck - it's been a great week!

I agree, the Fiero Warehouse ones seem to be top quality. I got them drilled and screened as well. Can't wait to get them on and get the car painted, but I have to get my front end back together, plus my DD is taking up a spot at the paint shop for the next few days.

Is there any issues with the air intake when you add the scoops? And how easily are the screens added? I apologize forall of the questions but I wantto make sure that I make an informed decision.

Thanks for all of the replies so far.

I plan on removing the 'plumbing' for the stock air scoop and just putting a cone filter in the fender well for now. Long term I want to 'glass in a ram air type setup.

Reallybig.
The red scoops you have on the last page. Are they 82-85 Firebird, Formula, Trans Am without ground affects? Also are they rigid or bendable? I ask if so that the inside screen area could be pushed in some with a rigid screen to open it up some.
I've been looking at those. The shapes look right for the hood without any special mods other than cutting the hole. They look they could be made to pop in. The screen area is a little small, but they just look right.
I would have considered them for side scoops. They would work great for the right side. The left side would need the stock scoop filled in first. Taller but shorter.

I don't remember exactly which year firebird they are from but know that the same looking scoops on the ground effects model have a longer lower side that extends behind the side ground effects trim. They are hard plastic and don't bend easily. The open area has a cheap plastic screen that breaks easily...and the volume of air they let through will be low. They have a curve to them that matches the fierbird fenders so on a fiero hood would have a bit of a hump... Could be worked a bit i am sure. Overall they are a bit small for a hood but think if theopening was cut down on an angle to provide more flow, they would look good and function better.

Just remember the drivers side is really the intake for the air cleaner. Anything modded without a baffle can injest water in a heavy rain on the highway. My Ferrari kit ran the duct into the air cleaner without any baffle and in a heavy downpour on the freeway, it sometimes would sputter and miss, even quit completely a few times. Also without a baffle (to catch the water), if you use a stock paper air cleaner element, they get soaked like a roll of toilet paper. I ran K&N waterproof filters in mine. Thats the main reason you find a lot of rust in the air cleaner canister.

It's not to bad if your handy.





Those look pretty sharp, unfortunately I don't qualify in the 'if you're handy' department

I have bought fiberglass from Fiero Warehouse, Fiero Fiberglass and Tha Driver and I must say that we are fortunate to have vendors who have good products.
I didn`t have to prep much to get them smooth and ready for paint.
Plus, they fit pretty good as well.

I don't know anything about the scoops. I just bought the car on Saturday. Sure love the look of them though.

Well, after reading this I started looking around and found a set of Fiat scoops. So I ordered them.
This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.
Then I remembered that I ordered a Fiero Store Scoop from a member, lol. I haven't been home for a few weeks. So I don't know what to do now. I guess one or the other will be for sale for what I paid for them. Having matching side would be cool, but TFS scoop would be easier and it has FIERO on it, soooo....

You lucky guy. That was a nice car, if it's the one I'm thinking of. I wanted the Fiero Store glove box out of it.
