I simply did the hood risers to help with cooling. I know it is probably only 3-5 degrees cooler under there, but every little bit helps out in the desert. It has been at least 100* out there for the last 4 events I have driven in.
It is an old school trick that has been done for many years. Its like $6-12 for a set. Def worth it for someone like me that is on a tight ass budget and needs a bit better cooling.
SO that is my .02 on the hood risers. My friend picked these up for me a year ago or so.
Even if I get an extraction hood I may still rock them!!
Suggestion, your car needs to be flashier. Black is killer for the street-slayer look, but doesn't do you any justice when you're trying to get exposure, whether it be for sponsorship, or just a shot in a magazine. Maybe paint your front and rear bumpers pink.
