The goal of this vent is to provide a simple, yet subtle aid in cooling without incurring a large disturbance in airflow over the body of the vehicle. The vents longitudinal edges are designed to follow the central body lines of the hood. The louvers then, open perfectly transverse to the vehicles body.
Manufacturing: All of our Hood Vents are manufactured from 5052 Aluminum sheet. The pre-formed Hood Vent patterns are cut by CNC laser router. After the patterns are cut, the louver sections are formed on a padded CNC Brake. This process ensures all louvers are formed to identical angles. As well, the padded dies used for forming ensure no damage or marking occurs on the material.
