I love the hood, it works and I think it looks great. You just have to be careful with water getting into the spark plugs. I would imagine the carbon hood didn't sell well because iirc it was like $700 + shipping. Then after paint it's over $1000, not many people have a need for a 1k plus hood.
Tape some yarn in the vents and see if they get sucked out or not. Please do this and take a pic of it so I don't have to. PLEASE!!!

Oh, I thought you were supposed to age car parts before you put them on to improve fruit structure and relax tannin.

at higher speed, nothing under 60MPH. at low speed, it doesn't mean a thing.

my vote is that it doesn't work. show me one race car's extractor hood at same location.

Some racecars have extractors further back-ish. But they are significantly different in overall shape such that they donít really have a high pressure base of wind shield like a Miata shape does.

My guess is the FM hood works just not near as effective as some other hoods that have better placed openings.

I will say my modified Arebuni works at vurtually any speed. Looks like Autokonexion may be a close copy and probably much higher quality than mine might even fit without modification like mine required.

crazy low crompression, lots and lots of detonation, leaks 1qt every 240-miles...its awesome. PM or email pics of your hood and a price, please.

It looks like I'll never get this car painted.
