Dusty,

With the MVP Carbon Fiber Cooling PLate, can you still install hoodpins through it?

What is the function of the cooling plate and where on MVP's site is located?

It is in the Cooling Components section.

The purpose is to block off all the air that escapes uselessly into the engine bay between the headlights. A FMIC blocks the radiator from much needed cool road air. A lof of the air passes through the FMIC into the radiator. But a good amount of it takes the path or least resistance into your engine bay through this hole. By blocking it off you are forcing the air through the radiator, thus increasing your cooling capacity.

Just this weekend I had a guy in the UK email me to tell me that JUST this plate solved his overheating issue.

Kind regards,

Dusty

Dusty,

I have an FMIC cover plate. Do these serve the same function? It is located in the exact same location as the unit in the picture on MVP's website.

If its in the same place and it blocks air from escaping needlessly into the engine bay, then yes it serves the same function.

This may be a stupid question, but... is there any real difference between a metal or the carbon fiber that the Greddy unit is made from, in heat transfer due to material?

I'm sure myself and 50 other people on here could write a 1 page summary on carbon fiber vs aluminum heat transfer. In short, CF blocks heat better than metal, which transfers heat through it. Thus CF keeps engine heat out of the area between the FMIC and radiator.

Regards,

Dusty
