I really like the look of my Formula with the stock hood. Now with that being said, I have noticed that my car gets up there in temp in the summer time, like any other car, but I would like to keep it down. I don't know if there is much of a solution besides installing a hood vent, but what are my options? Like I said, if I could keep my stock hood and figure out a way to get the air to exit or cool my car down I would. In the 60-70's right now, my car is staying around 180-190 degrees. I know with summer heat, it will be in the 195-205 range. Probably about right for hot hot days, but I'm just one of those freaks that would like to find a way to keep it a bit cooler. I dont know who designed the fan to hit the front edge of the front compartment and then the rest to hit the hood, but it's beyond me. Are there anyone selling complete hoods ready to be painted that are good? I dont know if the Warber hoods are still out these days or if there are any other options. I'd rather stay away from just buying hood vents and fiberglassing, would like to find something virtually that just needs to be painted. Or if anyone else has any other solutions, I'm interested. It seems my Aluminum 3 core radiator cools just about the same as my stocker, which I find kind of displeasing.
Any ideas would be great.
