I am looking for a carbon fiber VENTED hood for my EJ. I am currently looking at the VIS evo style. What do you guys think about it on a civic? Would you consider it rice? The reason I ask is this: The big vent is right around the area where my snail is, so it would work great in releasing heat. Also the vent comes with a cover(for rainy days). I think depending on the car, it would look good. I looked at other styles and they have no way of keep rain/moisture out of the engine bay..... thoughts? Thanks!

personally i like the oem look but if you paint it to match the car so its not so "look at me" flashy then it would prolly look good.

i've been considering this myself cuz i dont want the gas in the float bowls boiling while sitting in vegas traffic during the summer. i would consider this mod function over form if it lets the car run.

i remember that civic from a long time ago. it still makes me want to remove my eyeballs after looking at it.

about vented hoods. i hate the way they look but if it helps you in the end with releasing heat from your engine bay....go for it. function>form

Im thinking about making my own vented hood out of my stock one.. getting some small mesh and tack welding it on and cutting out some small holes would look pretty slick.

Se the link below and look up "Naca duct". I posted about them in that link also.

Yeah, in that thread we mainly discussed using an OEM hood for the purpose of venting. CF works to for the "lighter" more weightless version od ducting or venting. We all know that I am all about venting and drawing out heat when it comes to engine temps.
