Don,

Can you define "low budget" and tell us how you did it?

Thanks!

It is the hood vent off a new SS Camaro. Cost around $120. Bonded it in with panel adhesive and had to fabricate some small peak extensions that carried it into the vent. Low cost because it look a relatively small amount of time and money compared to buying an Anvil or Ring Brothers hood.

I have a Ring Brothers Razor hood on my 69. There was an epic oh sh*t moment when I installed the hood and the vent hit the brake master cylinder reservoir hard. It seems they only build manual brake cars. Had to use a remote reservoir master. They may have since relocated the vents to address this issue, not sure.

Don, do you feel like that vent moves enough heat out? I see lots of corvette guys who run OUSCI run the side vents and cowl vent.

It is hard for me to say. Kevin sold the car but my understanding is the guy who bought it runs it hard with no complaints. Roughly 700 hp LSA.

I think side vents further forward are likely more effective from what I have read.

Don, if at all possible, that's what I'm trying to avoid...the very costly mistake of buying such an expensive item and it not fitting due to other parts colliding with the vents. It's one thing when expensive parts don't fit in general and you cut a bit here, shave a bit there and viola, it suddenly fits perfectly. But, to buy the hood and it otherwise fits perfectly except for it not being able to get along with other expensive then having to sell some of those expensive parts at such a reduced/discounted rate hurts bad. But, wait!! I can just come and try on your hood Don. Hmmmmm....
