Got one myself, happy with it.
Only thing I would suggest is have some sikaflex, or adhesive foam on hand to seal it to the bonnet.

See the small gaps between it and the bonnet? I've since added adhesive foam.




A good unit though, looks beefy

How well does it line up with the original hole?

They are wider aren't they? I'm just looking for something that I don't have to cut anything and get a little more air.... I'm looking at a hpd intercooler which is the same size as the standard.

Did you paint it mate, or is that the original colour??

Good stuff, looking forward to seeing it.

One thing I have noticed (and i may have mentioned it above, i forget) is that sometimes during sunrise or sunset, the light can reflect shockingly off the leading edge and back into the cabin. Nothing some clear matte tape won't fix though.

There's a good writeup on installing this scoop. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: just remembered it's on the deleted PAD thread.

I was talking to this seller a few weeks ago. He is also making scoops for hilux's but he is making them at 80mm tall. I asked if he thought about making the patrol scoops 80mm too and gave him the run down on how it will help egt's and that every other scoop on the market is quite expensive. So he said he would also make a mould 80mm high to suit our patrols. So a win there. Not sure how he is going with it though.
