Alright, I'm back home. Just gotta find the time to actually start cutting. It's kinda hard finding the time working third shift and having to watch my son while the wife is in school.

Appears yours and another member made the center louver hole behind hoods brace?

Do you have under hood installed pictures to show louver's layout?

One member responded my PM and I appreciated that!

I am committed and ordered a set of unpainted louvers - there is a wait to hold off a set of unpainted in the next production run. Maybe I should ask John direct for the instruction while I am waiting!

Tia!

Yours looks to be up higher than this one with the black hood?

Got around to installing the vents. I had my side louvers following the contours of the hump more, so theyíre straighter and not as flared out as much. The whole center louver is in front of the MSD, so it clears it with no issues.

That does not sound like them. They seem to be super responsive to me.

I will put a call into them for you.

Thatís suprising. I actually bought my APR GTC-500 wing from John on here before I knew he was with trackspec and was a pleasure to deal with.

What is the measurement from the edge of the hood to the edge of the vent? The bottom.
