V7 Bonnet scoop on GC8


Recommended Posts

Hey guys 

 

Has anyone fitted an OEM V7 STI bonnet scoop to a GC8? Is it possible or are the mounting points totally different. 

 

Thinking of putting something bigger on there but I don't like the look of the big V8-9 style aftermarket ones 

 

Cheers

Have you seen the one Bakemono sells?
 

He makes a larger scoop for the gc8 bonnet that retains the style of the original scoop. I think he makes them in carbon or fibreglass. I really want one of the carbon ones but there are other more important things my cars need right now haha.

 

Have a look…

Cheers for that I hadn't seen those ones. They looked quite good!  Definitely suit the lines of the car more than the V8 style scoops.

Kind of more in the style of a v7 STi scoop but designed to fit the gc8 bonnet. Yeah the big v8 scoop on a gc8 looks rough, my car had one when I bought it and changing it back was the first thing I did to the car.

 

I haven’t personally seen his products in person but the Americans rave about them and the stuff he posts on Facebook looks high quality.

RPG Carbon does one similar too  in either carbon fibre or FRP.

 

I am guessing that Genuine OEM V7 ones are different shape/ different mounting points to fit the gc8 bonnet.

Be aware that RPG carbon are a Taiwanese company pretending to be in the U.S and they charge U.S. prices. The quality is ok though... not mind blowing, but not terrible.
