the flying sideways guillotine of death?


;)


not only do the pedestrians on the sidewalks have to worry about limbs being lopped off- but the people in the car-- a head on crash- that thing will make any forte and the people inside---- convertables. lol

Actually in the event of a collision detection the wing adjust to lift the car over the incident.

I love the hood, but I would want it painted the color of my car. It would probably be cheaper for me to have vents added to my stock hood.

750$ for the vented one, not bad it looks really good. I could have got it but I just put like 7-8 hundred in the car for stereo upgrade. Have to save up some more, this is exactly what I've been looking for for quite some time now wish I had seen it sooner.

i'm sorry the vented one looks crap. It shouldn't sit that high over the hood. It'll look a thousand times better sitting flush. Looks like the extra vents you can buy off Autozone, and just stick on.

Example of flush vents:

Well that's what I really want, I've been looking for months but can't find one. Figured I'd settle and at least support the aftermarket for the Forte/Koup. Maybe some one will make one like that. Sure would help, my engine bay get really hot down here in FL. and of course it would just BA.

the current exchange rate of singapore dollars to us dollars puts that 750 to ...... about 575 us dollars.........(then- factor in shipping rates...)

You'd paint a carbon fibre hood?! :eek:

That thing looks AWESOME! Don't know if that's exactly where I'm going with mine, but... hmmm...

The wing, otoh, does nothing for me whatsoever

Here's my question:... What's it suppose to vent? From what i can see, it's just another dust collector for the engine compartment. A real functional air intake should direct air to the air filter housing just in front of the driver. Now there's a cold air intake for you!

it's a head extractor.. it'll pull hot air out from the engine bay which will also create a vortex pulling cooler air from under the car up

I don't want a hood that looks like carbon fibre. It looks good, but it is not for me. So, yes, I would paint a carbon fibre hood if I had to go that route. You would still have the vents if that is what you were after and a lighter hood.

Having said that, I have no intention of buying the hood, painted or not. As I said, it would be cheaper to just buy vents for the stock hood and I am not worried about the weight.
