  • Vented hood.

    I believe this car belongs to someone on here, and I also remember this being discussed before. However, I could not find the thread, and I do not remember the name of the person who owns the car. (I THINK mccoy?)

    Anyway, it seems like it is relatively cheap, and fits well.

    Anyone have any leads?

    Yup, that's McCoy's car.

      A little googling magic to a_ahmed's canadian post from click here which led me to that

        Awesome, thanks!

        I was just checking ebay. For some reason, they have that hood for the S14 kouki for like $450, but none at all for a pop up front s13. At least that place has it for 650, and as long as it fits like it did on McCoys car, it still isn't a bad deal.

        Thanks again.

          650? Link says 540 or something unless you're looking at the VIS branded hoods. How much is shipping though? Can't even get a quote even when you're at the last button to finalize the order.

            I had a hood like this but when I put my new motor in the vented hood wouldn't clear the top feed fuel rail and throttle body.

            Now I am back with a heavy stock hood, wishing that I knew which aftermarket fiberglass or carbon hood would clear my engine setup.

              I make no claims that the site is legit, in business, or even the lowest price but put it up to show you it was a CC D1 and maybe they have it for you or maybe it'll help you find one now.

                I have access to this hood for a reasonable price (less than the website price of course):

                Looks pretty reasonable actually. I like that it doesn't have the large kickup in front of the vents. The other thing with the above hood on McCoy's old car (I had one very much like it in fiberglass), is that the vents are pretty far forward. The first one on my car was over the core support. I think it's setup more for a v-mount front IC and the front core support chopped out.

                  There is always the old GT500 hood vent trick. Just finished putting mine on my S14. Looks good and works.

                    Whoops, idk why I said 650. So does this hood fit, or would I have to trim stuff, and if so, to what extent? What motor did you have, Seraphim?

                    Eye-5, that's an awesome idea, and would save me having to paint the other hood. However, my shroud for my fan would be int he way, and make the vent not so effective.

                        Stock hoods are heavy as hell. The GT500 vent works, but going composite for the hood is worth it just for the weight reduction. It's up front and high, so you can really feel it in how the car drives.

                          I have a built SR20DET, top feed HKS fuel rail with Injector Dynamics 1000cc injectors, Greddy intake manifold with billet Era-1 throttle body, and the engine mounds are JGS. The top corner of the throttle body and the top corner of the fuel rail rub on the hood's OEM inner heat shield. My vented hood didn't even come close to closing prior to hitting. I would post pics of my engine bay but don't want to appear like an attention whore.
