These guys use to sell brackets for the lower 968 scoops, but I dont see it on their website anymore. Might still be worth a call or email.

The early brackets, from the early-mid 90's, were just a piece of probably 14-16 gage galvanized sheet metal with a couple cuts, bends and holes to mount top side of the swaybar link, and a rail with two studs to attach the scoop. I dont know if they got any fancier in later years.

I dont know what other vendors were making or selling simlar brackets nationally.

I think the air scoops probably work pretty well. I just had a hard time keeping them on my car. Anyone else seem to lose them easily?

Never lost one. I have replaced worn ones - they get ground down from running over curbing.

What have you been up to? Rallying the 951?
