My bloody oath they should. Bonnet scoops, Functional shakers, you name it it should be factory fitted!

I love the '03 stang bonnet too. That looks sweet!

The XR's should have bonnet scoops but i don't think all Tickford vehicles should.

Hood Scoops

I think XRs should have some form of hood scoop. The EF & EL XRs looked great with them. They weren't huge, but added to the toughness of the car immensly.
The current T-Series cars would look fantastic with a vented power bulge like the 300+ show was last year.
As for anything with the letters G.T. attached to it OF COURSE IT WOULD LOOK FANTASTIC WITH A BIG SCOOP OR SCOOPS! (styled into the car of course). Ford and Tickford succeeded with the look of the EB & EL G.T. in that regard.
Oh, and make it functional so you can put a sticker on the side of it with something written on it like "351 RAM AIR" or "E.F.I. RAM AIR".

Yes

I agree scoops like the Mustang one pictured or a Shaker would be good. Shaker only if they bring back GT/GTHO models, not for XR series cars IMO. A scoop that is actually crafted into the bonnet, not just some fibreglass add-on is what's required. I think we could probably do without the "Ram Air" or similar stickers though, a bit too ricey IMO.

The RAM AIR stickers were around before Rice was even invented. The dont have to be huge, just subtle.

P.S. What does IMO & LOL mean?
