It actually looks like good placement in person. Although a part of the underhood structure was sacrificed in the process.

Currently, he has no heat issues on the L27.

He'* going for the coolest Alien look.

They look so much better in person....they match the curve on the body and the lines on the hood SOOOO good

Thanks for the insights Bill...i know that you know more than me when it comes to thermal stuff....i really wasnt worried about the Heat Extraction so much as about the look of them

and Hell i may go crazy put the Trans AM Vents where yours are AND these

Why don't you spray paint the hood white with cheap paint and unbolt it from that car and remove the current one on your car and bolt the vented hood on your car and see what it looks like.

That car will be rolling out the door soon enough and there'* a ton of work to still do on it.

Can I have a set Pat? I like them.
