Hopefully he'll ship it to Canada. If he does I'm getting one. I just went out and measured, it would fit perfect and it goes with the lines on the hood nice. From my trace out in the snow anyways.

I don't know if he was ever a member but there was a bonne that used those lund scoops as heat extractors. He mounted them backwards and cut the hood to make then functional.

Personally I think that those lund scoops look like ***. I think there are some gains to be had with some type of ram air/heat extraction on the SC but I don't think that it is worth making you car look getto. If you want some type of ram air, Willwren seems to have the best answer for looks and performance.

There is a guy around here with a bug that actually cut his hood inbetween the crossbraces and inserted grills. It actually looks/works really good only problem is basically there is a huge hole in your hood open to all the elements. If I ever attempt some type of heat extraction i'd prob. just do the insert that are on the '94-'96 GTP'* or the ones on the 97+ Special Edition Grand Prix'*.

yes they are GP that have heat extractors on the hood, I think that they would look good on the 2000+ bonnies, and the older GP'* ones would look good on the 92-99

I'm thinking about it myself. he has a couple of sample cars and i
think the GP looks sweet.

But is this item FUNCTIONAL? It doesn't say so anywhere in the auction.

It doesnt look like it, but the lund ones aren't either. Just cut holes where the fake grills are. For the underside I guess any kind of channeling can be done as long as it doesnt touch the engine.

I'd like to see someone do it.

I already have Ram Air. I'd like to set up a couple grilles to heat extract to work with it.
