On a side note, I am going to try and make a center hood vent, similiar to some of the carbon ebay ones for subies. Trying to go center ish, but a little further away from the turbo with a vent low enough to get the hot air out.

Reasoning for the place is several fold and will be tested both before and after the installation. Firstly I don't want to have the heat from the engine bay enter the cabin through the vents at the base of the windshield. Secondly, air should spill off the side of the car better when there is a side draft and placed further back will allow air to better travel from the front to the rear. Concerns about the headlights being up are put to rest as they will be down for the hottest parts of the day and this is primarily when heat is at its peak, so its a bit of a compromise but a practical one for both placement and overall efficiency.

I picked up this from ebay and am planning on integrating it, but dont know how far back/ forward it should be on a st165 to vent heat from the turbo and Intercooler....
