It'* a little late to be telling him that!

I like the mod, but I'll just pull my headlight out when I go to the track. Why advertise?

lol.. I'd like them where Bill has his on his hood. I like the idea of getting some of the crazy heat out of the engine bay. I haven't researched here much on them and how much benefits they have, but I am very interested to say the least right now. With that being said, I am nervous about the thought of cutting holes in my hood.

If I do go the custom route on this car (Paint), I may do the hood vents at that time too.

On a hot day, I can see a solid stream of heatwaves coming from both vents. I'll have to measure the temperature of the heat coming out of them.
