Then if that looks good im possibly and i mean possibly might add Hines Perfomance's HEX Vent system.







These would also be painted IOM to match the hood

Yea its going to be nice when people ask what kind of hood i have...and my reply will be "custom"

But The ACS ports dont come out into production until End of april and im low on the pre-oder list so i bet end of may before i get them on the car. And the Hex Vents are also preorder with a release date of end of may.

Sooo were looking at June

T-3 Hood Ports installed over the Weekend.

What a challenge these things were....holy crap it wasnt easy

BUT the outcome looks fantastic!!

Started with ripping the hood off and masking off the Areas to be cut.

(Some of these photos wouldnt allow me to rotate them...sorry)


Using a demel like tool started cutting.
I let my buddy...the body/paint Tech make the first cut...i was too scared


One hole


Two holes




Back side probably took us a total of 3 hours to cut everything out

Test fitted the top ports


Then we glued them using the issued 2 part epoxy and let them sit over night.

The next morning we sprayed the backing black, only a small portion shows through the screen so we matched the screen color.


Then we let those dry and test fitted and glued these rear pieces on
