Default carbontrix crew: thoughts, give them to me

I need an oil cooler vent in my bumper. I'm thinking about putting one of these kidney vents on the passenger side of the bumper, and getting out the dremel and opening up the vent a little bit to let more air in. Thoughts? I have an 18-row oil cooler and I know I'll need to dream up some ducting for it, and route the exit out of the engine for maximum radiator pressure differential.

Looks like it will work, and I like the vents. Sounds like a good excuse to pick up a racing beat or erebuni bumper?

Extra ducting is for ricers.

You guys must not track your turbo miatas if you think that.

Hustler, i have mine in the passenger side in front of the front tire behind the bumper. Ill be using a NACA duct when it gets hot enough to where i need the vent. As of right now my temps never go past 160*

Any reason you don't put a big hole in the bumper like savington and mount your cooler in the same place as him?

because that **** is ******* ugly. If it comes down to that, I'll buy the $400 tizzite JDM duct thingy which goes there. The one on that lime green car looks almost doable.
