Hot Weather No Good for AP's Machine

Having the Trickflow intake and all works real well, but come these hot days and good old heat soak the engine loses major herbies. Next to no chance of fitting an insulator because of bonnet clearance. I hate getting used to some power and then losing it!

I have some ideas, however I'd be interested in hearing some ideas from others here.

Let 'em flow........

My thoughts exactly!

Kills a couple birds with one stone:

+ vents engine bay

+ looks damn good!!!

+ makes your car very unique (not that it isn't already :s6: )

- it may make the car look abit more conspicuous... hut hey
