If you want to spend a bunch less without much downside and have one that more or less fits in the stock cluster you can get the VDO from egauges.

That one is nice because the sensor is so small it can fit in the tight space around the top of a reroute spacer at the back of the head.

Today I added vents in the prescribed location in the hood.



Has anybody tried using these vents on an NB hood?

Not to my knowledge. I did remove the snap-together plastic mesh grid portion in those vents and then trimmed them to open them up a little bit more for increased airflow

Hopefully they will fit cause I went ahead and ordered a pair for my 2000.

They are the best looking solution that I have seen for hood vents.

Well I installed a pair of the WRX side vents on my 2000 Miata.
Here is a picture.
They seem to fit an NB as well as an NA.


This subforum is specifically titled "Race Prep" so I cannot comment on the worthiness of the vents for track use.
For the street they appear to do exactly what I am needing.
The temperature gauge has not risen above 200 deg. F. even when driving in stop and go traffic in 95 deg. Summer heat.

They look good. I think I like them placed further apart like you have them.

I had no choice on the distance apart because my V8 conversion utilizes the Corvette cold air intake which uses the center real estate.
It does look good in conjunction with the placement of the hood latches and the NB headlights.
