Keep your track car cool, and looking cool with R Theory Motorsports hood vents!
Cut your NC MX-5’s hood using the supplied stencil, and drop these vents right in. The vents are sold and shipped flat, with a raw aluminum finish that is ready for primer and paint, powder coat, or however, you want to coat them. Just bend the fins open and get coating! We can also powder coat them for you with our powder coating service.
Benefits of running a vented hood:
1) MORE EFFICIENT COOLING SYSTEM:
When driving, air passes through your radiator but has nowhere to go. The hot air accumulates under your hood which will raise under-hood temperatures in a situation where you're pushing the engine to its limits. As a result, your coolant temperatures will get too hot. That means you have to take a cool-down lap and less seat time on track.
2) LESS PRESSURE BUILD-UP UNDER THE HOOD:
Putting vents in your hood allows the pressure that would have built up under the hood to bleed out. Less stress on your hood latches at high racetrack speeds, less chances of them breaking. Hey, it does happen.
3) REDUCES FRONT-END LIFT:
Less lift over your front end = better grip over your front tires!
4) LOOKS AWESOME:

*The rubber trim around the vents is sold separately.* (You only need the rubber trim if you’re mounting your vents on the underside of the hood, not when you’re mounting the vents on the top side.
