    hmmmm, although a herculean effort, I am not sure I agree with several things. Scoop is too big, doesn't fit the vehicle style. Also the additional door sculpting does not work for me with the rest. kept what was there, and added more. To each their own, big cahona's ( politically correct term these days ) for taking this project on !

    Hardcore, indeed.
    IIRC from some of the PH posting, the reason for the enlarged side scoops is because the turbos' dual ICs are located there .

    Notice they relocated the fuel cap to the side window.

    I think a larger intake scoop does improve the Noble looks, but that one is WAY TOOO BIG!! He should try a smaller one that is molded into the body panels. Excuse the poor quality. It was a 3 min attempt.

    IMHO, I think visual aesthetics are a secondary concern of this tuner.

    Notice also that he used a modification of the wind tunnel generated suggestion of vents on the tops of the front fenders.
