I will submit that if you need screens over the vents of a Sky to keep pebbles out of the engine bay you might want to think about a different vehicle.....unless you drive through pebble fields routinely. ;-)
But on some cars where the water will drip on something you don't want it to (often electrical bits) you often arrange for a shallow tray right under the vents to channel the water away from the vital bits.
Damn, good to see you Marvic!Hey Robo, where are the pictures of these functional hood vents installed TOP VIEW please, thanks!
These are not drop in vents. You have to do some cutting to the hood.Are these drop in vents?
I'm not in the habit of using the dirty F word, but I have to confess...I used some mustang vents on my C5 Z06 to get heat out as well. No issues with lift at almost 190mph or water intrusion.
Thanks Marvic. I've only seen these vents on three cars. Mine, Paul Clark's 2JZ swapped Sky and that gray Sky above. They are off a 2013 Mustang...shhhhh...but I think Paul used ones off an actual Mustang...mine and I think the car above used ones FOR a Mustang but are real carbon fiber from ARC and are meant to be more universal.Thanks Robo, Love thsoe vents on your hood. I think I would of gone your way instead of spending the big $$$$'s with the Viper hood that I patiently waited for many years ago....
Also, Super Stripes on your hood... 👍
I had a feeling. Totally understand. Jim is good people.Yea, I don't think Jim is coming back. He has done many hot rods for the magazine guys. One of the best, but is absolutely terrified of the virus. He hasn't been to work for at least 4 months. Miss seeing him. Good people for sure.
