I've done the same thing here in Australia and it works a treat as water temps never go above 85 deg Celsius. This mod is a must and well worth it.
Cheers

If you want performance you need your car to run at it's optimum at all time's Kei office bar was the cleanest I could source as there are even more mod's done to it since pic was taken. Car is a time attack and track car and gets raped constantly and never complains which is what you want from any car. Will add more pic's for the cooling soon

i does not look like there is even much air going that route. a 2zz probably doesn't put out as much heat as a sw20. although an exige S was supercharded and i heard they were making a turbo version sometime. anyone know if they change anything (core or inlet sizes)? the front looks really weak in terms of reinforcements. gotta keep it light, eh?

ever driven one? despite looking 'weak' they are race inspired and damn them, they are stiff! I auto x alot and the stupid lotus exige and elise out there smoke everyone pretty much everytime. Its like cars vs go karts in a cornering contest

The only thing keeping up with them is the 700 hp viper out there, with slicks and massive tires, a corvette that looks like one of the nascar cars of tomarrow, and a turbo miata mx5.

The lotus cars usually pull clean runs, the corvette seams to think eating the cones is more fun than going around them.

Do you want to modify your hood? If so, why? I plan to use my ask hood as it came.

I do plan on modifying their engine lid though. As it comes it turns the car into a fastback. I want to modify it with a scoop that extends up over the roof to allow for maximum airflow over the top mount intercooler. Plus i think it will give it a McLaren F1 type of look.

Cheers,
Steven
