Just saw the scoops - look awesome! I'm not a huge fan of hood scoops of Fieros, but that really does look like it belongs. I've wondered for a long time what Firebird scoops would look like on a Fiero. Nice job.

Dear Mr. Crusher: I've studied your thread, and conclude that it's the best hood scoop solution yet, and I agree with others on your thread, that it looks like it belongs, or as I put it, "...like it should have been designed that way from the beginning!" Thanks for sharing. I will be doing it to mine too. Only have two question though: If you had to do it again, would you make any changes, like maybe moving it three or four inches toward the front??? What year of Mustang was it? Oh, one more thing...what does SMC stand for? Your car is nothing short of beautiful, and I'd love to see more pictures of it!

I have a very nice '86 GT red 5-speed, stock other than F.S. suspension, Eibock lowering springs, and KYB shocks. I'm going to put Jim Schulz latest side scoops (Fiero Fiberglass), your hood scoop solution, and paint the silver aero bottom, red to match. I'll take pictures and do a thread on it too.

I don't think you can move it any further forward because of the fan.

I did a PS mod to his car that I think looks even better (personal taste, and his still looks awesome), I plan on doing this one to these exact dimensions if SOULCRUSHER is willing to share (I hope you don't mind the PS):

I REALLY like this photoshop! hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....... JK I can't do this again! Yeah, as stated above, if the scoops are placed any farther forward, they would be right over the radiator bracket which would create clearance issues and would not alow air flow from the fans through the vents. When it rains and the fans kick on, they splash the windshield with water! lol.
Those wanting dimensions, I don't have them. car is in storage, and I will try to get them next time I visit her.

Awesome! All I did was remove/level the center section. I've always loved this style of extractor, but none of them have seemed to flow quite right until this one. All of the angles and curves are perfect.

I still have a long way to go before I'm ready to cut up my hood so there is no rush anyway, but I'd definitely love to have the dimensions when you can get them. I think I can make this out of just my hood and an one extra junk hood to get cut-outs from for proper SMC fusing.

I'm gonna have to try this FUSOR stuff. I've had a helluva time getting fiberglass to bond to the trunk/hood panels and staying there. Also, I've spend a couple hours today reattaching a ground effect to the flexible front fender. I've tried every "flexible" body filler/bonder around to fill the seam between the roof panel & the rear clip but STILL it cracks!

Does FUSOR make a flexible bonder?

Yes, but not sure of the number. You know that seam is there for a reason? Body flex. The seam is there to prevent cracking.

I looked an looked for weeks. Only found the whole hood for the Mustang. Ebay had one or two but none that were cheap enough.

Paul is in the process of making a scoop that will be very close. My luck, he is making this one after I already started doing the Version 2.0 scoop of his.

Small picture of it in the bottom of the hood scoop page $170 shipped to you.

I like the single vent slot. Makes me want to go buy another hood and try it out for myself.

holy crap I love this hood mod. I first found Paul's stm scoop version. In looking to see some completed hoods with his scoop I stumbled upon this thread… the original... Awesome job.

I really love how yours utilizes so much of the hood. It makes it flow so well.

Wow, this is seriously amazing!! I know you have been bugged a bunch, but wondering if we could get some dimensions to to figure
out how you did it. I wish I had the patience to do that. Though now I really want to!
