Two of the failed photos:





I think his name is Sam? They were one-offs and he still has the templates and mentioned the option of mailing them out.

Since they're done on the non-structured part of the hood, as seen by the S2000 shots in my post, you do not need the trim pieces.

The guy that started that whole trend on the S2K scene is a Queens native. I'll probably head over there with the T5 if I'm feeling dangerous.

As mentioned, the headlamp is a PS of what I'd like my current project to look similar to.

Rain entry really isn't a problem, as your engine sees much worse... I had been worried and have considered a draining mechanism, but there are plenty of folks who have done a LOT of cutting and just leave their engines almost entirely exposed.

"As far as rain, I never had problems with my Scoot hood on my FD3S and the vents were literally right over my battery. I drove it in the rain and washed it at least once a week for about a year and I never had any problems at all. Also my tech that did all the work on my FD3S told me not to worry. He was right in this case. "

Re: (StealthyS60R)

..and the same could be said of the compressor side


I think folks realized that the heat transfer from the OTE pipe was so marginal that a lower engine bay heat did not matter terribly much in that aspect.

Better airflow through the radiator, condenser, and IC would be the main benefit I believe. I'm still a strong proponent of the fender liner vents http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
