i'm picking up my GTi-R swapped 91 ser this weekend....and just need to know if the stock hood will fit on there, wiht the top mount. i have a 94 se parts car...so i have a spare hood and junk in case i decide it needs *vents.





*vents in redneck terms = GAPING holes made with my plasma cutter :biggthump

you could use a sti hood scoop (which still wouldnt cover the whole ic) might look a little funny but whatever works. gti-r hood scoops are ugly IMO. what are your plans? scoop? vent? nothing?

a big gaping hole...haha

i'm being serious


the top mount might not even be on the car for first start up, haven't decided yet. my FMIC isn't here yet.....so i might just have to run aroudn with no hood for a while

i was just wanting to see if it'd fit, in case i have to go get inspected...cause, they like hoods for inspections, so i've heard

seems to me a bunch of people on here have doen it without cutting a giant hole in the hood....my guess is that it will fit....even if you have to trim the framing on the underside of the hood

Ummm... remember the job of the intercooler is to COOL the air going into the engine. So unless you want a heat soaked chunk of aluminum sitting on top of your engine, you'll need to come up with a venting strategy or go FMIC.

Hes running it w/ out a hood. He was only asking incase he had the car inspected.
