Hey guys do you know of any good hood vents / scoops. Link me if possible. I want to put a vent over the turbo (next to the battery) and a scoop right behind the passenger headlight to get some cold air in. Some thing CF would be nice. Nothing to massive.

Get a elixer c/f hood. Not only does it look damn sexy, but it helps the flow of air in the engine.

yeah, but most likely you won't be able to fit that thing on a twin turboed IS with the vent bending inwards.

so you don't want functionality? Please don't do that to your car. Hopefully you were joking :)

I want functionality over astectics, after a hard drive I can burn my self on my engine bay platics. I like the elixer but dont want to spend that kind of money.

Rich who ?...BigDaddy ?......I'm not doing anything per se....but it's nice to know what's out there and who can get it....I've thought about a Elixer/Vented hood for a long time just never got around to it...


Anyone have shots of Maxxpsi's hood ?

Mine was not that hard to do. I love the carbon fiber look. There was a huge drop in under hood temp. I can take more pics of the vent area if someone can host them.
