in my opinion, stick with the stock hood2.2L said:ha, you should see my hood. The top of my header sits about an inch from my hood when its closed. When i close the hood, i can push down on it and touch the header, lol. My hood is cracked so bad and its only getting worse.....oh well, lol.
most CF hoods are clear coated.playboyesq said:thats a special epoxy coating though right? nothing you could buy a Homedepot. im looking at buying myself a gift after my turbo install is done and im thinking its going to be an OEM CF hood by VIS. I will be wrapping my mani in heat wrap but if that happens to my CF hood i would like to know how i can fix that
well yeah, the turbo is blowing out an exhaust and the jrsc is sucking in air. The JRSC is the only thing you have consider heat soak since it makes a difference in the temperature of the air coming into the head. it wouldnt really matter if the turbo gets hot.Preludesi_2004 said:And, correct me if im wrong, but a jrsc shouldnt really put out as much heat as a turbo, considering its on the intake side not the hot side. And the fact that the washer bar is right on top of it almost, air coming in might help cool the sc down a bit.
