^^ I second this. Everything from the A-pillar forward is the same between models.

Hey Greg, what hood do you have in your avatar? I like the scoop, looking for something similar for my ZTS.

Honestly it is just a fiberglass hood scoop bolted to the hood with layered fiberglass over the middle part of the hood. Im getting ready to swap it out for a while to resand and paint it.

It's a nice scoop, I wish I could do bodywork so I could do something like it. Or I wish one of those rare Focus Central ram air hoods would fall into my lap.

It honestly isnt hard at all. you could do it all in a matter of hours with a battery operated drill, an orbital sander, and some bondo.
