...or maybe do something ferrari-ish and vent it out of the back of the bumper or between the tail lights with some mesh
Yeah, I'll vent it out the back and cover it with mesh. That's a good way to do it because the backside is a low pressure area and will help the heat get 'sucked' out. I may even switch to a center outlet exhaust, dunno yet. It won't be too hard to modify with the half-cut trunk and my exhaust methinks.
What I haven't figured out yet, though, is how this will affect the engine bay cooling through the decklid vents. The engine bay gets its cooling from the low pressure created by the fastback cavity (as opposed to a hatchback style like the C5 coupe and the C6). The lower pressure above the vents sucks the heat through from the higher pressure coming in from the underside. This seems like its flow would be in opposition to the rear exhaust vent, or at least with a mostly covered underside and cooling fans like I plan on adding. I'll just think about it more while I'm soldering boring tedious joints at work, heh (fortunately that's not nearly all that I do, it just requires the least amount of concentration, and otherwise puts me to sleep.
I also think I need to get a chopped-short rear bumper fascia to near-flush with the taillights. (edit: ) I just noticed that whodeanie made exactly what I need.
His new F355 style rear is as perfect as it gets on a Fiero. More money soon down the drain.
More parts to slap on and modify.
Why I am obsessing over this at (edit: ) 3 a.m. when I have to wake up soon for work this morning, I have no idea. Well, the insomnia helps I think.
