yeah, personally i did away with mine a while ago i wanted that flush look again. i do still think there are benifits from doing this.

i have two very small almost flush hood vents with some aluminum underneath to guide the heat to the vents on the pulsar....as it was not designed to have a turboed engine in the bay or for that matter the beast im stuffing in there....lol

here they are removed and you can just make our the aluminum underneath them....

here they are just popped in.......dont think they are "rice" they are quite functional.....

no need for washers...many old school hot rodders have done this in the past...but my set up no need for it.....

yeah that will proabaly work good for coolling purposes, or inducting air into the engine bay.

yup...im sure it makes that big of a difference....or not

i got it done on my NX and i would have to say it looks kind of sexy

well its all subjective really personally i never did it for ''looks'' but more so to displace the heat if it worked. i personally think it did work for that purpose. i donno, some people do like the mod some people dont like i said just subjective really

The answer is NO. Uncle Ben's written all over it.

Can't say I haven't tried it. But it's still rice. Ew.
