Im right there with you. Im also thinking that since this is the T1, what will the T2 or T3 insert look like? Look at the ACS T4 ports for the fog lights, so many different variations now.

The insert is not an exact copy of the ZL1 insert, its similar. The one similarity that both inserts have is that they both help expel the heat from the engine bay by allowing the air to escape through the vents. The biggest difference between the two is that the ZL1 insert is made of carbon fiber materials and sits flush with the hood. Were as the ACS insert is made from a composite material and sits on top of the hood.

Go for it! They look great and the first time you are sitting stuck in traffic and you see the heat waves coming out of the vents you know it was worth it. Even though heat expulsion is not its primary purpose ( front end lift reduction at high speed is the primary purpose ) it does give you some peace of mind knowing all that heat has a way to escape now.

Have less than a 1/4" from hitting the mesh.


How about creating a notch in the lowest point of the insert. Simply using a tool like dremel or rotor, if you're willing to try, I'll send you new grill work free of charge.

Another option is return the insert to us, I will shave 3/8'' off the louver, this would be in straightline, and fabricate new grill works for you. Like I said in the email, I may have something else to help with the water management.

Can you confirm the SC did not rub the OEM hoodliner ?

As per email sent to you. The whipple does hit the hood liner.. Hits where the WHIPPLE name plate is and also rubs on the intake elbow.. Has always done this. The pulley IS rubbing on the mesh.

Wear marks can been seen.

It must not be hitting much, you should be able to see where it's hitting on the mesh too. Do you think you could take a grinder or dremel and cut away enough of the mesh to clear it? Just thinking out loud here.

Cool! Thanks! What color combination do you think I should go for? all black, yellow body and black vents or vice versa?

Either all black or body color yellow. But that's what I would do based on your black stripes.

yeah that's what I'm thinking. I'm leaning more on all black but then again I realized that my hood will be 85% black and 15% yellow...so that made me think if yellow body will help out with that. I just can't imagine how it's gonna look on my hood.
