i believe the description was that it would have a bulge/rise to fit the depth of the louvres. I think the bulge would add to the "riceyness" of it i.m.o.

Cry count me out if it bulges up to fit the louvres, I can't fathom a way that it would look good like that. I figured that since it's a scoote replica, it would look a lot like the real scoote hood for the FD..

something like this:

I think that hood is perfect. A lot of function with somee added aggressivness to the front. call it "rice" if you want. To me the Simpson hood is more that. A cowl induction hood, a domestic thing, on a japanese hood?? no thanks. nevermind it's about twice as much.

There's no proof at all that there's added function. Just because one RX-7 race car at some point ran a similar hood doesn't mean it's functional. I know plenty of race teams that tack on all sorts of aero pieces without any testing.

I am interested in the functionality more than the aesthetics, but that doesn't look too bad..

Does anyone know how such a hood works with the rain?  my car is a daily driver and I have no choice in whether or not it gets rained on while away from the house.

The only other trouble is that it would seem that heat extracted from the hood would then come over the windscreen and into the cabin when the roof is down..

I am fighting bad underhood temps during summers here in Texas, (for example: my accessory belts get overheated and don't last more than a year, my alternator overheated, not to mention how bad the car retards itself) maybe this could help..

I'm in San Antonio and have no clue what this rain stuff is.  Tongue
I had an Eclipse that I had a vented Evo style hood on it. No rain thingy but I had no issues at all.

Leatherface24, thats a sharp looking hood. Do you have a picture of what it looks like installed on an NB?

They won't. This is the first time they are making the hood.

FYI, they are going to keep the power bulge.


Yup, keeping the bulge. sad1

Sure they allow heat to escape when the car isn't moving, who knows what they might do when the car is moving. You'd have to scientifically test it.

Probably a bit heavier. But I think the look and cooling definately offsets the small amount of weight gain.
