Aluminium Air Scoops

I noticed that SS Inductions have an aluminium air scoop for the XR6 kit.

Does anyone know where these scoops can be purchased without buying the complete kit?

Pic of the aluminium scoop attached.

I have A BA turbo SS induction kit with 2 of the scoops, one for each side of the bonnet catch. The scoops are nothing more than a flat bit of alloy bent into shape and screwed on under the air intake. You could really get something made easily from a local engineering firm, or buy some alloy sheet from an alloy distributor and bend it yourself, if your handy with a few tools!

Re: Aluminium Air Scoops

I can do it myself I know but have no tools so its easier to buy one.

I'll try to get some measurements I guess and have a go.

Cheers,

Re: Aluminium Air Scoops

They were $195 on ebay last I saw. Thats a damn pricey piece of plastic and metal for the gains they give.

Re: Aluminium Air Scoops

I don't want the intake just the aluminium scoop. I'm putting a 2 1/2" system on soon so I want to be getting as much cold air in as possible

Re: Aluminium Air Scoops

Got one and have modified it to fit my car.

I'll get some pics up soon if anyone is interested.
