Hi guys,,
I would like to know your opinion on custommade hoods with holes etc etc.I have carlos sinth holes on my tibbys hood.But that was for my turbosetup.Now that i am running n/a do i need the holes or i should cover them up??Furthermore now that i am planning to buy the new korecai when it comes out i think i dont need the holes on my hood,it´ll be just for the looks...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Well I suppose they could also send more cold air over the engine keeping it cooler too. But if you like the way they look then keep them. Do you have any pics?

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>Turboman, the holes in your hood also evacuate air pressure out of your engine bay by negative pressure created by airflow over the hood. With air pressure built up in your engine bay you will experience understeer at high speed, and if no front diffuser is used it can cause extreme understeer, as air can be channelled downwards into the negative pressure zone under your car, causing the front end to lift or lose traction in corners. This is especially fatal in FWD cars. If a diffuser is used then the negative pressure under your car will remain constant, but will not be enough in a FWD car, if vented properly, the holes in your hood can also provide downforce and help keep your front end on the ground at very high speed. In very high-speed cornering the rear aerodynamic balance must also be helped by installing either a wing spoiler or rear diffuser, or both(usually use in RWD)...As Autobot says, it also helps cooling.

As i am not very good at physics i think i should fix my hood as it was.I think that Hyndai Motor.Co sure knew what she was designing.Anyway you dont need holes when you use cai....<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

this is likely a dumb question, but what about environmental concerns? our winters in canada can get pretty harsh. i really like the looks of the zefiro hood but i worry about them gaping holes letting in rain, snow and slush.. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
