What exactly is a engine vent. I've heard of it from another post. Is it just a new hood with vents or is it the side fender vents??How much HP can be gained just by doing this???Thanks

You looking at a total gain of....







0hp

A carbon fiber hood will make you lighter and possibly make airflow better for a SRI b/c its releasing engine heat, but if you were to put it on a dyno you would see minimal if ANY gains.

As far as fender vents, look at your engine bay and tell me if you can see the inside of your fender. You cant, the fender fents are just for looks.

Also, if you can find some of that new Mountain Dew drink: MDx ... That has been proven to add longevity to your transmission, when you replace your fluids correctly. Hope this helps!
