Just need to order parts now.

This mod does just that. I literally see the heat pouring out from the vent. Cool air coming in through the grill and hot air being pushed out. The rain tray in place as not to get the motor wet, funneling the water out by the radiator. Yes, this is the mod to do and it still looks OEM.
I may get the mail slot delete next as I had it on the previous car and like it as well.
I did the hex vents this weekend and love them. I too am looking for mail slot delete. Would appreciate any details/info. Thanks!

Just get Toilet bolts, take the extractor with you to the hardware store. The head of the bolt should "Snap" right into the slot that the little OEM bolts comes out of. What part of Jersey are you in??

Can someone do me a favor? I have an MPD1 cowl hood. Because of it's added height, the cowl extends farther over the windshield than the factory hood. I know the measurement from the rear of the factory hood is 16 3/8 to 16 1/2. Since my length is different and I don't have the stock hood anymore to compare, can someone measure from the point at the front of the hood to the leading point of the insert?

That should give me factory placement. I may end up moving it farther back depending on how it looks.

I took the liberty of using one of the OP's pics to show the distance I need in case it was unclear.

Please and thank you.

Make sure you set it far back enough so you do not have to cut into the bracing on the underside front of the hood. This would work best with our COPO style hood, don't remember what style underside you got

I did set it back to miss the front bracing. I have the ram air hood hood but since I'm turboed I didn't get its benefits. I had to cut slightly into the channel that funnels air, however, the insert blocks it for for the most part and doesn't look weird. I'll post some pics after I make the brackets to hold it in place.

I thought of selling mine and getting the COPO cowl hood but I'd be that much further behind moneywise.

Front corners seem to be sticking up just a bit... I'll work on it later. I apologize for not being a photographer.

Looks like you did a good job!

Our hoods have a bit more of a V'eed peak to them than the standard hood. This might account for the corners wanting to be up a bit

THAT'S Great KaBoom!! I see you installed the side strips of aluminum along the sides of the hole, from front to back, tucked under the existing hood metal. I also noticed the Toilet bolts! Wing nuts will help a lot with easy on/off operation and on mine the drip tray presses against the hood liner and helps hold it up.

Good eye Eddiefuzz!

Your idea of the toilet bolts worked great! It allows the rain tray to be removed and still have the vent secured tightly against the hood. I may go back and paint the alum strips black so they don't show so much with the rain tray removed. We'll see.

I'll be at the Fontana Speedway on November 9th so I can test this mod at 140+mph speeds!
