That looks to be really well done, any idea when you'll have it done? I'm not sure how it will look for your paintcode. I think it would look pretty awesome on a nice black or white car.

Maybe another month to finish the welding and a week at the body shop. Also looking for sponsorship to have it molded;)

Looks great, and this is definitely a purposeful mod'. I'll add another slit / vent by the radiator. Comparable to the exh. manifold & turbo, the radiator will be the next significant source of heat within the engine bay.

I'm thinking adding a slight vent opening by the radiator area instead of the small vent at the upper corner (I'll look at it again tom)....what say you?

Anything that allows for heat evacuation from the primary sources will be a step in the right direction.
Note, at speeds the hood will be a high pressure zone. So, a little bump at the leading edge of the 1st slot will create a lower pressure area, thus aiding in slightly better evacuation in all the remaining slots. Little picky fluid dynamics there, but either case, as it stands presently, your modification is a "damn" good idea.
