Bigger-scoop!!

After all the good advice from fellow impy owners on here,and reading through the previous threads,have decided to buy a bigger bonnet scoop instead,as that TMIC I won on ebay won't make any difference,so I won't be aving it,hope a larger-scoop this will allow more cool air in.As I can't really afford a front-mount,or even a decent topmount.After shelling out 2k on a recent rebuild .......how deep are your pockets..............

Just dont have the type of scoop I had on my car when I first had it...

Sure its HUGE (no lie, takes up most of the bonnet) but in the process, looks dog ugly... Oh and it starts to lift off the bonnet the higher the speed you go.....

Here's a pic of when I first had my car...

Damn seats where horrible!! Mind you saying that, my Dad never drove or was in the car after the first day Mind you, he seemed to want to try and race everyone as he always does in it.. I wasnt amused at all

I got the seats fairly cheap so I thought at the time Dave!!
