Tomiboy, I saw a ~15* lower water temps on track by venting the center - front section of my stock hood (followed the under hood bracing and it almost looks like the Viper intake vent). About 2/3 the opening that Sean has. Very good ducting, Mishimoto 55mm, stock fans. I however have some kind of cooling issue, possibly weak water pump.

Read my temps with an OBDII scan gauge.

Are you thinking of venting yours?
Rick, do you have a way of dealing with the water? When moving, I'd guess it's not an issue, but every time you stop it is!

Sadly, no solution for dealing with water. The underside is very close to my BOV recirculation pipe so I can't even add a slab to run the water closer to the radiator.

I generally only run it in the summer and cover it with painter's tape when we're expecting rain.

Far from an ideal solution.

Hey carnut169.
Any pics of the underside?
Do you think there is any space lost underneath due to the design of the hood?

Thanks.
Dave
