Default new Chaser Aero hood.

ClubRoadster.net

discuss. The rear vents are obviously bullshit, but I'd just cap them off from under the hood. Any thoughts on the pair of 3 vents? He wants $200 for FP, $300 for CF.

That style looks great on an FD, but I think it would be ugly on a Miata. But I guess for function sake, it might be fine.

I dont think it will include those rear corner vents. Thats a picture of the FD hood I think.

It is definitely not a miata hood... the headlights are too rounded and narrow.

Didn't Ben have that hood? Wasn't it ugly a sin?

Different hood. They're doing that hood above to fit a Miata. I'd say for Sav's purpose it's perfect. At that price it's more than perfect - no fruxing around with cutting holes and plastic parts to get hot air out.

One thing that I was questionable about was where the vents will actually end up being. If he puts them too far inwards, your getting water into your spark plug valley. Either way, the other ones looks to drain in right above the turbo, which I'm not a huge fan of having water pouring on my hot turbo (if you drive in the rain). His answer to that was to block off the vents before it rains, which I'm currently doing and it sucks.

Need to see that on a Miata. So far, a Dremel is cheap and 2hrs later you're there.

Your lack of worrying is why you ended up with that burning itch on your junkx.

I'd like to see a simple clean vented hood using louvers like the Jag XKR or Aston. Hate that godawful huge vent and lips look of that hood. OK for track only cars but for the street or dual purpose I prefer more subtle and clean. Besides, both of those cars are just big updated expensive versions of ours!

I am thinking about getting one of these and comparing it to my FM extractor hood for coolant temps at the track. Cheap enough to where if i don't get anything good i can turn around and not sell it for much of a loss. If it turns out it works better, then it was a semi-cheap investment. On top of that i could sell the extractor hood and recoup most if not all of the new hood cost.
