I'm hopping to get started on mine in the next few weeks. If you go on Ebay and search for importZX you will find several hood scoops.

That is true. I ordered one from them about a year ago and it came broke, they never shipped a replacement and instead gave a partial refund. To bad they are the only place that sells the one I want.
