    Hood Scoop

    The stock hood scoops are nice, but the plastic black part in the middle looks extremely stupid and cheesy to me. I would like to put real vents in, completely for a cosmetic reason. (I realize just putting vents in there is in no way going to improve air flow). There are no replacement parts on Importshark has anyone seen replacement parts for the stock hood vents or thought of any possible modifications for it? Best solutions i've found so far are either painting them black gloss, installing turn signal LEDs, and one guy even said he was attempting to install wire mesh, but never followed through on the thread.

    There has been threads about this. Maybe only on the VT forum?

    I believe the concensus is that if you take it off, there are support beams underneath that would hinder much of the air exhaust. Also, since it's located further back and angled the other way, it would be use more for hot air exhausting instead of air intake. I think that if you take the engine cover off to let the hot air rises, and then take the vents off, then take the heat shield / sound dampener off, then take the vents off, it could help engine temperature. Would have to do a test to make sure.

    A dremel would do the job of putting some holes in it.

    Make sure you can find a replacement first before chopping it up.

    I totally agree, I am in no way planning to get better air flow out of it although it would have to exhaust some extra heat. It is more for a cosmetic reason, I don't like how they look.

    The 2013+ Genesis Coupe crowd asked us to make functional hood vents since they also had that faux look-alike vent things. (See pic HERE). It was a pretty easy project for us to bring to market, so I can't see it being a problem to do it for the Veloster crowd. Of course, I'd have to see some interest to get it off the ground...

    Most definantly interested, Mike I say you start a pre-order thread on it. Guarantee you will get a good amount of requests, I don't think anyone likes these plastic fake vents.

    Ok, looks good so far. Does anyone happen to have pictures of the under-cover thing removed from under the hood? If not, how about a volunteer to do this and post some shots in here? I'd especially have to see how the plastic inserts mount to the hood, so shots of them off the car would be most useful.

    BTW, these are naturally much smaller than the Gen Coupe hood vent inserts, so I am fairly confident they'd be even more economical too.
