Not a hood vent but I just put these on the XTC. These are from a TBird Turbo Coupe. Not sure thay are big enough or would even look good for hood vent but they were perfect for morphing the XTC deck lid into a cold air /air cleaner scoop.

ALLTRBO, I do like the aggressive scoop on that hood, but I'm not sure I want to chop up my front compartment wall. I have my battery located up there, plus I actually store my sunroof glass in the front suprisingly often. I'd like to see how yours turns out though!
I really like Soulcrusher's hood... I'll probably go for that look. ALJR, the scoops are from a Mustang, I believe a Cobra. They're not very common so I'm going to try and make my own rather than find them. I'll see if I can find the link to his thread about the hood.
Duane, I'm going to be doing the hood myself... My first time doing body work, so I don't know if I'd want to make another lol.
Fieroguru, your hood looks good, the scoop is nice and deep. If I were to do one big opening, I'd probably make it about that size.
kyunderdawg, you're not too late... I really liked that hood at first, but I think I may go for a "simpler" look. I'll probably start the hood today or tomorrow and post up some pictures
Haus, I'm not really a big fan of the cowl hoods on fieros. I like the low hoodline our cars have. When you put a cowl on it and raise it up, looks like the hood grew tumor. Just my opinion though.
Thanks everyone! Feel free to keep the ideas coming. I havent started the cutting yet
I think a deep single vent would look pretty well with the way your car presents itself. Also if I may add, When my father was piecing together our Suburban Gorilla when our radiator wasn't doing quite the job we needed it to, we built a cowling around it to help airflow.
Please forgive my father he designed the website and most everything is super-sized, just mess around with the (ctrl + -) to see the pictures better. Anyways I think it would be interesting to see someone make a hood vent fully functional by directing the airflow through the radiator and vent completely.
This is a question for me, but I decided to put it in this thread because ur also tryin l choose a hood scoop so u can consider what I'm saying too..
Could u take a snout looking hood scoop (kinda like grand ams or firebirds) and keep the front holes closed and let the back of it be open to work as an extractor? I don't think the front snout part would cause too much lift and it wouldn't let in more air pressure cuz it would be closed.. And it would have a nice Pontiac look to it.
Here is an example of what I mean

You could always try what I'm going to attempt (just the center extractor, not the fender vents), though it'll take some serious modification.
Those fender vents are awesome. If someone could wip that up on photoshop and make them, id buy a set. I'm a graphic designer but I don't have any of my programs at home, they're all upstate at school.
