So I saw John the other day picking up something from him at Ztrix, and your hood was about all boxed up when I showed up. I did get a peak and it looked pretty awesome. Cant wait to see it installed on your ride....

The radiator cap hits but I'm going to be running a different radiator. I thought it would be hitting the intake and turbo but it clears, hot damn... This isn't bolted on or anything its just laying on there.

Matsuo and the other guy with him were really talking a lot about the louvers on Darrens hood. They kept touching them and pointing at different areas of the hood and inspection lids. I wish someone there understood Japanese to know what they were talking about.

I like those vents a lot!  Can we get dimensions on them?  Just checked out the new Ztrix website and it looks great.  I have a Camaro ss vent that we are mounting on the bulge of my zx, it may have to get some of these too if they compliment it.  I'm taking the over vent it and block what isn't needed later approach.

I use run cool louvers on my non-vented hood. Worked like a charm. :)

 I'm pretty sure complication and money are usually the best way to solve engine issues.
