Yeah, I have also seen a Varcies(sp) hood on a GS. You bolt up the rain guard with the attached bolts and it channels the rain down around the radiator. I am in SoCal, so not much rain.IS3FINALLYmd said:trd hoods for supras have the rainguards, they channel water to the front of the engine. Many pepz said they never have had any issues with rain .
thermocouples/thermistors...tape or epoxy them downedgy said:i'll try to find a way t otake underhood temps stock, & then after i try the new hood.... any one know a good way to do this other than with a say little basic digital thermometer etc...? kitchen cooking thermometer...?
I am also figureing out how to create a little "rain tray" for the vents in tha hood....removeable is nice... :wink: .
really tho water in the engine bay is not really a big deal unless it is ALOT, & or pouring on the air filter etc... but the amount of water that will get in on a vented hood should not cause problems.... motors ran "open" for along time underneath & at the sides etc...etc, & they survived....they will get dirty as hell but should run fine...connectors & such are sealed much better than they were.... but i will still try to fabricate SOMETHING out of a bit of CF layup to help keep it semi clean
i'm thinking articulating louvers out of CF that will roll open to vent & roll flat to seal..... :crazy:
