hoodscoop

how much would you guys estimate the price on a hoodscoop+paint and install?

because i thought it would cost like $300 or something and i thought that it would be way cheaper to get a Carbon Fiber hoodscoop

i found one for just $119 at http://www.i-m-racing.com/rmmhoodscoop.html

and i think thats a great price, any input?

edit:its made by RMM (not RMM style,the real deal)

raised Hood scoop from www.thelostrican.com at $130, painting job ($150 for Hood scoop, Hood spoilers and gauge pod, all painted in spectra blue) estimated in $50 just for hoos scoop, and installation, so easy you can do it yourself in 5 min.
I really wanted all this; not into carbon fiber...
hope it helps...

I think the c/f one from your link doesn't look to good.
I've seen it too, wondering whether to order, but the edges seem rather rough. maybe it's just the picture tho

just my 2 cents

I had a VIS c/f raised scoop on my stock Hood for a while (looked like shit) and it scratched the hell out of my Hood.

Don't buy it from Intense Motorsports. I ordered something from them a month ago and haven't heard back from them since. Email's haven't been answered, phone's off the hook...but at least my credit card wasn't charged.

I bought mine from importfan.com. I paid 138.00 shipped and
I am satisfied, except that it didn't come with any hardware so I ran to Home depot and got some bolts.

i'm interested but would like more info (are they functional, come with hardware, instructions, etc...) and some pix (like what does a "cf/keflar" look like). exact prices are important, too.

Those prices are a bit off as the Canadain dollar has gotten stronger since the group buy was posted.

Best thing to do is give you prices in Canadain dollars which will remain the same, and you can convert yourself.
CF-$299, CK-$329, FG-$249. These are in Can. dollars and do not include shipping or GST.

ok, i work for one of the largest a/v accessories manufacturers in the country so i confirmed canadian pricing (canadian to u.s. dollar conversion). it translates to the canadian dollar divided by 1.47.

that means:
CF-$299 is $203.40 u.s.
CK-$329 is $223.81 u.s.
FG-$249 is $169.39 u.s.


not bad for TRD jdm. by the way your link to newcelica.org doesn't work.

Ya I know. When I post the link something strange happens. Just try to cut and paste this." ?s=3aa693b46928b124d687ba34fcb07f31...28b124d687ba34fcb07f31&threadid=7437 "

For some reason "s h o w t h r e a d.p h p?"is being replaced with [censored] ? so once you cut and paste change [censored] ? with "s h o w t h r e a d.p h p?" (take out all the spaces I put in).
It does not really matter to me what the american dollar is doing, as long as I get the money in Canadian funds. I'' post up some pics once I get mine put on.

it is a replica...it is not TRD. it's a bit pricey for a replica. hoodscoops here at ecelica are like 120 U.S. but since noone elsemakes the type M hoodsoop then i guess the price is understandable.

Yes, you are right. I have been wanting to get a TRD Sport M scoop for a couple of years now, but the price of the real thing is way to prohibitive (over $500US). I had this scoop made not to make money, but so I can have one. The shop wanted to make sure they sell a certain number to pay for the mold, thus the group buy. Now that the group buy has been filled, I figured since the mold has been made I would let everyone who wanted one have one. I am not able to post the link to NC.org, so here is a word file with the URL in it.

Understood, but like I said before- I don't trust Intense Motorsports. See my first post on this thread.

and with the Carbon Fiber..it won't match the stripe well...I am going to see how much it costs to just get my stock sanded and painted black.
