After reading threads re lack of air getting in to cooler if you have a bullbar and bonnet protector, has any body tried extending intake to front of bonnet, like a snorkel but using same shape as existing, as I do a lot of towing would be interested if anybody else has tried and get results before I go ahead maybe for nothing but expense.

Try a Bigmouth

I had some big ideas for bonnet scoops and intercooler fans that would have taken a lot of work and cost a fair bit. I was going to fit a scoop from a Holden muscle car with a fan fitted inside. I ended up with one of these made by Barney

2weeks from order to delivered, 45 min max to fit if you are slow. Its well made and for the price (alot cheaper than ARE) you couldn't make one and finish it as well as he has unless you are really well tooled up. I haven't had it long and on it own its not the answer but so far I'm happy with the effect on EGTs.

P.S Anyone need a scoop for a Holden HQ Monaro
