  • GT500 vent installation

    I guess I may be over thinking this but would this be a good spot to mount the vent or does it need to move up further towards the windshield or downward towards the grill? I remember looking over some post and it was mounted around this area.



    Thanks!

    That looks like a good spot, just make sure it's just behind the radiator exit for best effectiveness. If you are going to move it at all, inch it down slightly towards the grill/front.

      Ok, thanks and I will move it closer towards the front.

      Is it OK to have the GT500 vent with a raised hood with spacers? I run 1/2" spacers to slightly raise the hood. It has worked nicely to get some of the heat out.

      I plan on doing front duct and replacing my electric fans without a shroud to a Taurus fan with a shroud.

        Remove the hood spacers, make sure the hood is sealed as much as possible and run the vent. Your cooling will improve at speed.

          sorry to steal the thread, but im installing this vent in the near future also on my s13, you say to seal it as much as possible. Besides the stock rubbers around some parts of the hood how would one go to correctly seal it?

            Weatherstripping like the stock rubber.

                Ideally, yes. Look at any high end car made in the last 5 years, you'll see the bay completely sealed. Otherwise how do you actually drop its pressure when air is leaking in everywhere?

                  I was told by someone on here that it won't fit on an S13, which is why I got one of those Uras style vents and put that on my hood instead. Best of luck, though.
