    Default Are 82 GT and 83 GT hood scoop share the same bolt pattern?

    Does anybody know if the scoops are interchangeable without drilling new holes?

    Got a friend looking to do the swap and I wasnt sure.

    No the bolt hole patterns are unique to each scoop. The hoods are completely different also. 79-82 and 83-86 are the year model break downs on the hoods.

    Cowl width is the main difference on the hoods

    The center of the 79-82 hood is depressed while the 83-86 is raised. The 79-82 center is essentially the same from front to rear where the 83-86 flares out to match the wider cowl. The 79-82 hood front is straight across the middle and then angles off to the sides. The 83-86 is more of an arc.

    Here is a picture I found on Craigslist of an 83-86 hood with the 82 hood scoop. See how the scoop has a different profile than the hood lines? Narrower at the rear, wider at the front, while the hood is the opposite.

    If they take my stapler, then I'll set the building on fire...

    Thanks guys, I have an 82 scoop and am looking for an 83. Was hoping to just drill one set of holes and be able to use the 82 scoop unitl I find an 83 and bolt that in the same holes. I have an 88 LX that I am using it on so the 83 will match the lines of the hood better. Thanks again
