That would be cool. Do you know where you can get the euro hood schoop around the bay for cheap?

I suppose you could install the scoop on a carbon fiber hood, but it would be slightly more difficult....

Check out the Euro Scoop Installation writeup on mkiv.com

You will notice that the stock hood has a bracket that the Euro scoop bolts on to...This bracket would not be present in aftermarket hoods....So you would have to center it yourself perfectly. In addition, I dont know if the CF hood would be put under any stress due to the fact that the scoop is clamping down on it....

Finally, I do not know if there are Euro Scoops available in CF....were you planning on putting a fiberglass scoop on a CF hood?

So in a word, Yes, I guess you could do it, but it would not be nearly as straight forward as it is with the stock hood.

You can mount it on any hood with the same contours as the stock hood. The only issue would be how to line it up correctly if the hood doesn't have the same exact reinforcement shape as the stocker.

You can get them from either of these guys.

Hello,

Just so you know,

the air guide part will not be able to be used if you have a strut tower bar. I thought I had heard at one point that it will fit if you cut it or something, but Im not sure.

Without the guide, the scoop looks unchanged from the outside, but under the hood, their is no longer the guide that funnels air into that mini scoop (I believe it goes to the last 2 cylinders). Still, without the guide, I am sure some air gets in their and the rest of the engine area gets some cool air as well....

I believe that the air guide directs air toward the 3 and 4 cylinders. This was designed after Toyota realized that the numbers 3 and 4 cylinders were the hottest cylinders in the block. There is an article describing this feature at mkiv.com under the heading BPU I believe.

Scoop it up! I highly recommend Curt. I ordered my scoop from him (among other things :)) and it went as smooth as silk. Not only are his prices virtually impossible to beat, but he will even provide you helpful hints along the way if you need them. Not to mention the scoop is the bomb :D IMHO, it really "balances out" the look of the car. Not to mention, it is a fully functional OEM part! Good luck.

I will ask if he has any experience with cutting carbon fiber. Your best bet to ask on that subject would be someone like aerogear, its a local shop here in the bay and they make kits and carbon fiber hoods they would probably be able to answer your question the best.
