Here the pics....

If you compare the side widths of the scoops in the old and new models (the bodyline where the scoop and the hood butt up, the last 2 pictures show this the best) its visually a 2"-3" longer than the old intercooler scoop opening on the hood, you can also see the radius on all 4 corners of the scoop opening are smaller . Also you can tell the countours on the area of the hood where the IC scoop is there visually different also.
Awesome way to reply. I appreciate that. Hosnestly, the 1st and 3rd pic are the most informative to me. The corner radii are larger on the old scoop. Nuff proof right there. Going further, I definately didn't catch that little fact of how much closer the footprint of the new scoop was to the windshield. Though I know know all I need to know about the scoops from seeing them in person. I appreciate the pics.

I recommend that you do just that. Just be sure to send it to me and I'll properly dispose of it for you.
