MB Autosport Hoodscoop Review
By Isaac DeCoursey @ EverythingCelica.com

I just picked up MB Autosport's 7th Gen Celica Hood scoop 2.0 on Thursday afternoon. I requested it to be painted 3p0, Celica's Absolutely Red. The painting was done well and the fiberglass was smooth - no problems to be found with it.

The test would be to see how it would fit.

I popped my Hood, took out a deep-socket 10mm and started working at removing the stock Hood scoop - took me about 45 seconds to get all the screws out. Then I lowered my Hood and slid the stock scoop off... I needed to play with it just so that it would slide out in the correct direction.

Installation of MB Autosport's Hood scoop was simple! I just dropped all four bolts into the stock scoop's holes and then propped my Hood up and used the included nuts and washers to securely fasten it.

The install took no longer then 4 minutes to complete.

The fit is pretty close to perfect. And the color match was exact - currently, there is 0% fading on this 10 month old 2001 Celica. This scoop fits nice and tight - it actually looks like it was meant to be on the car!

I think I'll keep this MB Autosport Hood Scoop - it fits close to perfect, the color matches 100%, its unique on the Celica... and there are absolutely NO PROBLEMS with mine.

Hood Scoop install time: 3 to 5 minutes
The Price: $90 - $140
The Look: VERY AGGRESSIVE!


Any feedback is welcome,

This hoodscoop came from "MB AUTOSPORT". At the time of this review, they offered these pre-painted. MB Autosport disappeared from the parts scene in mid 2003.

My advice is to continue searching, online.
