couple design changes. Swapping out side panels with smoked instead of translucent white for contrast. ANd hoods going to be a simple flat aluminum skin with a hole for the manifold covered up by a giant GD hood scoop.

omg. you don't need a stupid retardo hood scoop with a FMIC.

just say no.

if anything find something to mount there to draw the air through the rad/IC and up and out of the hood. like the WRC cars do.

lol. I need something to cover the intake manifold that is 2" higher than a flat hood. The hood will have a hole int he middle of it so it can shut but rules say entire engine must be covered

the trubo is actually higher than the hood too, but i can probably get away with just a lil hole to clear compressor cover

I'm actually with Brian on this one, even though its your build so obviously do your thing. I'd vote for a raised middle section like a cowl hood

Going to have to go with a cowl as well. I'm biased though since I need one too .
