    Damn that looks good HEDSUP. Thats the look i want to go for. I've seen those scoops where they look like they are glued or stuck and the look isn't good.
    Did they use some sort of filler to get that look then sprayed over it?

    Same here - hate the glued on look.
    It cost me $1500 to buy the scoop, mould it to the bonnet ( they used fibreglass ) and paint.
    Are you in Sydney?

    Thatís a shame. Was going to suggest a catch up if you were in Sydney.
    Good luck with it, itís worth the investment.

    I feel like i have asked you before but can't remember. But how much did it cost all up to supercharge yours in NZ?
    Did you do all the work yourself?

    Does anybody know why the vf and vf2 (and that includes the gtsr) bonnet vents aren't all cut out? There is 5 (from memory) slots, but only 3 of them are actually cut out. Seems strange obviously it's deliberate, but wonder why they wouldn't want maximum venting.

    Probably because they are mostly there for looks

    $13,500 installed. I ended up having to spend another $2500 or so at the tuners due to the stock clutch dying.

    I was wondering the same myself actually. Seen a VF2 SS up close and noticed that the vents look mainly for show.
