    Can you buy an aftermarket hood scoop ?
    If so, how much would one cost and how to install ?

    Just keep your eye out on the BST and post up an ad for one. If anything check out the junkyards like RDD said. I'm sure theres someone out there with one for ya.

    I just called my toyota dealer. He quoted me 850 for a new hood (2011) with scoop and all parts to make it right. Then I called a local body shop with great rep, he quoted me 750 to paint and install. So there it is, 1600 for a scooped hood for a 2011

    I always recommend securing skewps with slotted screws - they're awesome, as they shed water unlike those pool collecting rusty Phillips, Torx or Robertsons. :boink:

    You do realize it is a FAKE scoop, right? It does not scoop air into the engine... just there for 'looks' and has no mechanical function.:rolleyes:;)

    It cost me 1200 to have the scoop installed on my hood and made functional. I did buy the taco hood and all the parts from the dealer and it was not painted.

    A friendly warning that none of you have brought up yet... You really think it is okay to spend $1,600 on something that doesn't work???

    Just making sure he doesn't expect a horsepower gain with doing such a change.

    I pretty much go by the idea that form should follow function, but lots of things are done for cosmetic reasons. New grills, new wheels, larger tires. I mean honesty, if we got rid of everything that we couldn't absolutely justify, we'd all be driving gray soviet style boxes. I think the sport hood looks great. Takes me back a bit. If I like the way it looks that's all the reason I need to have one. Actually, knowing they piss people off is another valid reason :D. So there's two good reason to have a fake scoop.

    So to clarify, are the scoop parts separate from the hood? Is it just a matter of blending them in with filler and painting? That's not really so hard.
