Hmm, it’s a good point. To be honest, I wouldn’t want to leave an open intake with and open hood like like this for an extended period of time. I think it would be fine (as the intake entry isn’t below the hood vent) however I’d rather be safe than sorry. Best to go with a closed intake or at least more covered one IMO. Not only that they’re better for resisting against heat soak.

Looks fab. Please convey my condolences to the owner who had their coilovers knicked while parked somewhere that looked safe...

I know back in the day(Mid 90's) hood pins were always recommended with CF hoods. Are hood pins not needed with this CF hood?

Not with this one. We use the original latches.

We do recommend the customer is very careful when releasing and closing the hood though - doing so without care could result in damage.
