the scoop is designed for the old FC box intake (or the newer Volant intake) as it would put air right into the box...though any shortram would put the filter right in front of the scoop.

any other location would be non functional for its original intended purpose (getting cold air to the intake)

god no.

the 05-07 Foci have the airbox in a completely different location so the scoop wouldnt function at all. it would hvae to be relocated to the front of the hood, which would look retarded (and the 05-07 foci already look retarded enough... )

As much as I would love to offer this type of custom work option, it would be VERY expensive to make a mold for each and every hood that the customer ordered.

Just remember the reason this hood did not sell more in the beginning is that FC over priced it.

I'm sure it will be priced right about the same as our other Duraflex hoods so I wouldn't worry about that.

Great news.

Is it strictly going to be CF or will there be a fiberglass option as well?

this might be a dumb question, but will your hood include a latch?
