Gruppe-M Intake with RPI Ram Air Intake Scoops

Has anyone tried installing the RPI Ram Air Intake Scoops with a Gruppe-M Intake? I'm wondering if the RPI Scoops will clear Gruppe-M's front piece that bolts onto the bumper by the hood latch.

so are you saying nevermind? or are you saying you still are wondering about RPI scoops with the gruppe M scoops?

if anything i think the RPI scoops would take in more air... from what I remember the Gruppe M's scoops had a lot less surface area than what I believe the RPI scoops had

All I'm asking is if the RPI Scoops will fit with the Gruppe-M intake? Thats all!

Andro, what you're proposing is akin to those double-deck spoilers, i.e. overkill. Gruppe M already comes with a set of scoops, bolting on another set of scoops is not going to scoop in more air. Pick one, either use the Gruppe M scoops or the RPI scoops or (swoop scoops or the home-madae poop scoops posted in the DIY section)
