Alignment of Side Scoops

I just finished adding new quarters to my mustang, and I am curious as to the alignment of the side scoops. I have the GT/CS recognition guide, but It doesn't indicate the exact placement of the scoops relative to the quarter recess. I thought about using a ratio to a good picture of the scoops and there alignment compared to the quarter recesses on my mustang, but I thought I would first see if you guys would know? Is there supposed to be any silicon, or seam sealer between the scoop and the quarter? Or just Flush? Thanks for your help.
Sincerely,
Kevin

Kevin,
if you have the 96 recognition guide, look on page 123, it shows the demensions where the holes for the scoop should be drilled. This should give a very close idea on where the scoop should be placed.

Kevin,
I forgot to mention that the back hole is often elongated, meaning the factor drilled this hole so the scoop could be moved forward to backward depending on getting the alignment correct.

BrandonB,
you are not dumb, learning is never wrong if you remember it.

Re:Alignment of Side Scoops

I talked to Bob Teets and he said to get the screws in before you tighten the nut on the air scoop that is the reason for the elonged holes. If you don't that puts to much pressure on the screws;D

Re:Alignment of Side Scoops

My guide only goes until page 66, I think it might be older? Can you help me on the dimensions? Thanks for all the replys.
