Hi!

I Finally got a Supersnake hood and some other parts installed, 2.5 upper and 10% lower + some other parts, but still the stock 2007 supercharger.

The newest generation Supersnake hood does not have any holes for airflow at all, I know that they had problems with to much air disturbing the mass air sensor. But with my new mods the enginecompartment becomes extreemly hot. So I am thinking about drilling some holes myself, to get some cooling for the supercharger. Has anybody here done that with the new hood?

Any advice how to do it right, or if I should let it be the way it is would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
Stephan

Hi!

Thanks!

sorry for asking when it gets to techikal my English could need some improovement, did you do anything to open it up? I am thinking about cutting the front a little and drill some holes so that the supercharger
will be cooled when I am on the Autobahn. Do you think that it will weaken the design?

Hi Stephan!

Your car looks great with the SS hood! Did you end up drilling holes in the hood for air flow? If so, can you post some pics of both sides of the hood? I will be buying an SS hood and am in the same situation as you.

Thanks!

Hey AJ

Your car looks great with the SS hood in these pics! I'm jealous :-) Did you put any holes in the hood for air flow or leave it filled in? Are you happy with the hood end?

Thanks!

Hi!

No holes drilled as of yet, still trying to figure out if I shall do it or not, and how.

I have had some more important things to get fixed on the car.

Driveshaft vibration ( 2 months of calibrating and testing, The weather is a bitch at the moment) Still working on it. And now the Clutch starts to slip.

Will let you know and post pictures.

Stephan

Hi Stephan

I actually bought the SS hood too. It is at the body shop now for modification and paint. I think we figured out a different way to open the snorkel up to allow fresh air into the engine bay. It will be 2-3 weeks before all is said and done so if you can wait that long I will post pics and explanation on what was done.

Thanks

Hi!


It seems that it was to good to be true, Now Im am almost done modding, and getting ready to drive the beast for the summer,
something new comes up. A nice crack in the Supersnake hood. Is this something that is common with these hoods?

Hi Kempf. Sorry to hear :-( Haven't noticed any cracks on mine. My body shop did tell me that fiber glass hoods often have issues like this. They also told me to be careful opening and closing the hood (ie, no slamming). I'm sure you don't slam yours though :-) Thanks.
