I'm gonna have to say I like them better farther apart. Also glad to see I'm not the only one with one of those dogs hanging from my rearview lol.

I think the wider spread looks best. I feel I should know what those vents are from...but I gotta ask. :)

On a serious note: do post details about how you accomplish it. I have been toying with the idea of grafting some 427 Cobra vents into a '96 Hood.

the yard have the turbocoupe too and they wanted to sell the whole hood for it.

i'm thinking before using the turbocoupe one and reverse it for a vent but later saw this one which is bigger and have the meaner look to it. the turbocoupe one might look too small on our gigantic hood. this nissan unit looks just about the perfect size for it.

I like 2 also. It's an idea I was kicking around if I didn't get a cowl.

will need to look for a way for preventing water drip directly on top of the sparkplug boot to make this work(if i have the nerve to use the cutting wheel to cut the hood open...).

I want to do some thing like that on my hood. I want to get as much heat out as I can. With the high stall speed, non lockup converter in mine, a lot of heat is added to the already hot engine compartment. It will be rough to do any more cutting on the hood though. :)

Weld a small piece of sheet metal underneath the vent, suspended from arms so you don't lose any functionality of the vents, with channels/tubing to route any water to a safe place in the engine bay
