Ive decided to buy another used hood and cup it up for venting. I was going to get a carbon hood, but ive owned a ton and the fitment is always crap. Instead, i am going to get the verus hood vent. Curious if anyone else has any feedback or know of other products available to allow some air to escape the engine bay.

Unless your tracking, It would just be for looks.

Several hard core track guys have added them and can see small decrease in temps.

Its a dedicated time attack car. Im still thinking about getting a seibon hood or maybe the aero republic. Thoughts? Or should i get a used oem hood and install the verus vents.

I don't think there have been any specific tests that show one product or vents are better than others - yet.

Mine is track car and I have not decided on anything yet. Have not gotten to where the temps have sucked any power yet although I am betting VA summers I will see the need.

I have dragged feet also because the track Zupra does not get garage space and I have not been able to figure out what would be getting rained on by sitting for week or so at time.

It will need all the help it can get over the summer. Plus, vents added in the right location also provide free downforce.

Any word on this? I’m thinking of either adding a vent to the stock hood or replacing with an aftermarket hood and painting it to match (if I find a shop that can do it)

I just ordered the Verus Hood Vent last week, and there's a shop close to us that is doing the install. Shop is owned by the same folks as IND, they'll do a good job.

It gets wet in there. Water can already get in from the front. All electrical connections on the car are waterproof from the factory. Any air intake separate from open-cone is typically fine too and shouldn't flood/hydro-lock you.

I also don't take the car out when it rains :p.
