So I'm getting this cf hood and I'm wanting to make some changes to it to make it a bit more unique. I have narrowed it down to a few ideas and pics of them are below. Let me know which one you think would be better. the scoop thing is 15x8x1.5" Not sure what the vent size, I'm guessing around 15"x3".

Are they going to be functional or just for show?

I'd go with the vent it should decrease the underhood temps

If you really had to, go with the last one. The others are just like the alltrac scoop head on and will only cause a major positive pressure area in the engine bay. The last one is reverse and exits hot air out of the engine bay with the flow of air, that is the best one.

I wouldn't want to alter a CF hood though, any particular reason? If you want to add vents just to vent the hot air, I'd just put some spacers on the hinges so that hot air exits through the sides.

I was thinking the same thing. I might just go with spacers.
I just think it's kind of plain and boring.

Blah for spacers. It never looks right.

I say make your headlight covers match and rock a solid black hood.
