Mustang GT scoop...

Aquatience of mine had an 01 mustang Gt and traded it for an 01 edge (he likes 01 models, weird...)...and wanted to know how hard it is to install the mustang gt scoop on a ranger? i know i read about it but im tired and dont wanna search, so dont bite my head off

and where is the best place to buy one? i saw a few on ebay...anywhere else and do they come with the honey comb insert like the GTs have? FYI, he dont have the internet so i gotta do the footwork for him...

also some pics would be great so i can show him...

I think someone over at the old G-E had a printable stencil for the grill cutout. I'm doing that mod sometime soon.

For the longest time I planned on getting one, but I decided to hold off until I have HP to back it up.

must be nice. i'd definately wanna cut the hole out if i got one. i wonder if it would do anything to our trucks to have the hole cut out (to make it functional). i wonder if water or other crap like that would have a negative effect on it in the long run (like the long bad winters with snow and freezing rain and sleet and salt and blah blah blah)
