    bonnet vent ideas

    Since fitting my Lexmaul manifold my under bonnet temps have gone up significantly, so much so that the paint on the engine cover is blistering - this is due to the cat being in the engine bay rather than underneath where it used to be.

    So I'm thinking about getting the heat down via some bonnets vents. but which sort to go for??

    A few conditions tho...

    I don't want ones that look like a Halloween pumpkin reject
    It needs to be towards the rear of the bonnet
    It needs to be functional

    ideas please

    Gotta be an evo one, or a custom job as displayed on the yellow MK2 Cab in TV's hall of fame this month

    Seriously though, how about smiliar to scottyboy's, but having 2 smaller ones, one in the middle of the bonnet and one towards the top end
