cowl hood

I just put mine on today. I was curious if you can make these functional? I cut a piece of the under hood insulation so that it would allow air flow by the tymar. I noticed small decrease in egt and running one pound of boost less at 75. It looks pretty good though

Re: cowl hood

One little pc of advice. You cannot swing the passenger side windshield wiper arm up all the way now. It will rub on the top of the raised hood.

Re: cowl hood

im glad you told me that it would have made a bad day If I found that the hard way. I would post a pic but its not working for me. I wont be able to tell for sure until my next road trip on the affects on mileage or power. that is to see if it was worth cutting the insulation to allow air flow to the filter.

I thought about hooking up ae and seeing what the intake air temps were then cover the hole and do a identical pass to see if they drop or not. not sure what other sensors to select to see if the hood helps at speed.

Re: cowl hood

I had some buddies think it would be funny to lift both my wiper arms all the way one day after work.There is now a little section (maybe 3/4in) right on the back edge that is missing paint. After I told them what it did, they felt bad.

Re: cowl hood

I thought about getting some of the rubber trim for edge of a car door and placing it on the top of the cowl. or the entire lenght of the back side. this is what I was thinking of using.

Re: cowl hood

The wiper scrapes happen- at least only you will see them Just wait till you get rock chips on the hood--- really puts a smile on your face

I have had mine for 4 yrs it has held up pretty well and there still isn't any others around town with the hood on there Ford as well which is really nice.

Re: cowl hood
