Except that I'd hate to run the car for a while and stop during a hard winter rainstorm. Downpipes and manifolds like to cool slooooowly and don't like being doused with cold water. The design looks amazing, as does most of Kevin's car (except possibly, ahem, for the color! :twisted: ) I've been salivating over that amazing rebuilt engine for months now, and I'd hate to have Kevin or anyone hear the unmistakable "ping-ping-PINNNGG" of metal deforming via thermal shock. (I know this is a design that's on the EVO, is there a water channel or some kind of baffle on the Mitsu?)Blaque_Out said:With the vented hood being discussed there's no need for any altered intake piping, or special water drainage. The warmer air would be immediately drawn out the top of the hood (as heat of course rises), and cooler air passing under the car will be pulled through the engine bay.
