designed my own hood scoop. GROUP BUY??

hey guys, i have a design for a hood scoop that would be a working "RAM AIR" system. you can see a diagram in the Zetec performance forum. i have Rob fromhttp://www.roadraceengineering.com who will be fabricating the scoop. its 5 3/4" long by 5 1/2" wide, with a 3/4" flat flanged section inside to epoxy to the hood of the car. the rest of the inside will be a hole cut out for air to flow to the intake. it will be 1 5/8" tall. the opening is 4". all im looking for is 10 people. let me know.

if anything take a look at my diagram and give me some feedback.
if interested, PM me.

cost w/o jokes

seriously man, the cost depends on how many people are interested. go to the ZETEC Performance forum and check it out under "I designed my own hood scoop". if youre interested, ill put you on the list for potential buyers and ill let my designer in Cali know i have one more guy.
this goes for any one else too.so far i have ONE. a big fat ONE. plus myself.

yeah, DGM-made, from europe. shipping is over 80 dollars. the ones i designed will be made in Cali. shipping only 10-12 bucks to the east coast, cheaper anywhere else. plus this scoop,not a VENT, is much more functional.
