You are not the first person to put a VVT engine into an NA. Is the engine leaning back? PPF disconnected from the trans? Or is this hood not stock?

Single-layer but with ribs...just a vacuum bagged OEM design. It's hitting vent-hole starts. I'll deal with it next week. I have another hood but it's the wrong color. This is getting in the way of my iRacing rig purchase.

I'd love to help out, but I am going to try to make the hood work. I luvs it, like a person. Using that hood will also save me money in the paint booth.

Dremel would not turn-on last night. I will use my butt-vibrator after my minor knee procedure today.

Trey - Go get a real job and pay someone to make your car work right. Even if you have the necessary skill, you clearly have a case of bad mojo.

I can only think of 2 shops that I would trust to actually work on your car and know what they are doing.
