I knew I should have used the Turtle Wax polish instead of the ebay stuff on the Big Scoop before I left!!!!! Best eco I could manage on the trip was 10.04L/100k, disappointing :(.

Turtle wax hybrid ceramic..
Will restore your eco and make your scoop as shiny as the top of idiots noggin.

Do yourself a favor.

Wouldn't you get more dead bugs on the IC and blocking it's airflow???
Just putting it out there....
I must admit I have had a fair few small rocks through the scoop and onto the intercooler, also an unfortunate small feathered flying thing got scooped. Insects seem to be light enough that they are deflected by air movement up and over the scoop.

Are you sure your thermo fans are running the right way troy???

Maybe there not and they are sucking buggs through your dork scoop.

No. Just putting a fact out there :).
Not to mention wind drag co-efficiency
It would be as efficient as a Mini Cooper S
My Mini was very efficient, under 2L sports sedan lap record holder at Amaroo for 5 years :).

Interestingly 50million butterflies and moths gave their lives for this trip, The windscreen was covered in splat of all colours at one stage and I saw many that appeared to be swallowed by the scoop but at the end of the day when I raised the bonnet to investigate it was no worse than with the original which impressed me, a bird would be a totally different scenario, sadly I had a bird fly into the top of the windscreen, whereas you could see the butterflies/moths deflect near the top.

As some may know I posted a wool test video I made many years ago when people were saying the original scoop didn't do anything, the vid proved them wrong and I had a fishing rod holder, bonnet protector that sat above bonnet line.
