I finally got a chance to take some pix of the Hood & post them. This is the hood that "was" on NO MERCY's car (Literally) before he changed to the Carravagio stuff. Thx Bill. I had it painted & mounted about 2 weeks ago. The hood has been tested to over 190+, according to DRM. (we'll test that, shortly. hehehe)
It is functional. When I'm sitting at a stop light, you can actually see the heat billowing out of the vents. Pretty cool. I have noticed that under hood temps are significantly reduced. The fit is pretty good. I've got a few adjustments to make, but nothing major. I've included some pix... check it out.
I also installed T1 Sway Bars that I had Powder Coated Red. I will post pix of them shortly.

DV that hood is sweet, I just may look into that. I wanted to keep the exterior rather stock, but I am seeing some pretty trick stuff lately.:cool:

Darth, hood looks great!! Where does the water go when it rains?

Is thier a huge difference with the T1 suspension? Where does it make the difference over the stock?

Darth, DRM's hood on your car looks way cool. :cheers: The water drains into the engine bay, but not on any electonics or intakes. There are plugs available for the holes if one is so inclined. Like Darth said, this hood is functional and you can see the heat escaping. :D

I don't usually drive the car in the rain, but water would drain onto the cowl( on the rear vents) & onto the radiatior shroud( Frt vents). The main difference I have seen with the T1's is that, there is a "little" more understeer, but once you dive into a turn, it is more solid than the stock sway bars. I am going to get some skid pad #'s when I can.
