you've gotta remember that the Celica's Intake is right behind the crash-guard/bumper...

The BRS Hood draws hot air AWAY from the engine bay and down the back side... Thus, creating a cooler environment for the engine to run in -the whole point of your original stock hoodscoop that the team of engineers at Toyota designed thumbsup

Notice the Airbox right behind the bumper... that huge black thing on the USA drivers side smile

...this is also where your Short-Ram would go after installation... and a cold-air instake draws cooler air from your driver's side wheel-well (The bottom of your car) spineyes

That Hood is tight. Right now it is between that one and the invader Hood. I think I like the invader Hood a little better, but I could put a stripe on the BRS one... Decisions Decisions.

I got 4 thumbsup while fighting 30 miles of Rush-hour traffic on my way home this evening...

I like this Hood!

(BTW, Invader Hood doesnt site correctly on the car - the driver's side "dip" is too low so it rests ontop of your ECU box, pushing that side of your Hood up by about 1/4inch shocked Althought that Hood looks AWESOME comming at you [Tasty] )

That Hood ur referring to on fast and furious 1 on the orangey supra is a TRD carbon fiber Hood which retails up to 1000. My brother got it for 600 through my friend's older brother car shop. =]

no, but like what im saying is, on a camero ss, the picture you posted is a z28 two totally different engines. and hoods for that matter. the SS has a center mounted hoodscoop like ours, but it has 2 ducts that curve around into the Intake. thus creating a ram air effect.

and please dont bring up the WRX and their "ram air" effect... their engine was built that way - notice the intercooler placed ONTOP of the engine, and not infront of the engine

My point against what you are saying is - you cannot just change a Hood and expect your car to to be more powerfull... you have to also change your engine to take advantage of different situations.

Now if you want to keep going over this about "ram air" and the celica's Hood design... walk out to your car and see exactly what could be done - the only thing thats really possible with the way your stock celica is setup and a FUNCTIONAL ram air design - would be to just remove your plastics grin

...

Step 1. Remove the two clips holding down the plastic piece. Use a key or pen to push down the middle piece then lift up on the clip.

Step 2. The finished product should just look like the Intake filter with no plastic obstructions in the way.

couple of questions, 1. the Hood is 2 piece, meaning the Hood and the scoop are seperate, right? looking at pics of it, it seems like the scoop isnt against the Hood, like it isnt installed, or maybe its just cause it isnt?
2. installation, is this something that can be done at home or is it something thats gonna have to be take in? 3. the hoodpins, Im guessing the holes for the hoodpins are not originally on the Hood, are they? and if not then I guess that answers #2. thanks

1) the pictures where the Hood is NOT installed to the car, the scoop is not bolted to the Hood... check out the Hood when it is bolted to the car and you will see ZERO gaps thumbsup

2) installtion is something that can be done at home... just grab a friend and have them hold the Hood as you use an 12mm socket wrench to remove your old Hood, then replace with this Hood... intalltion is actualy very simple.

3) hoodpins are included as a recomended safety measure - *I* currently dont have hoodpins installed to my car because the release latch and safety latch on the BRS Hood are top quality - ALTHOUGH, because the Hood is much lighter than stock Hood (75% lighter), we always recommend that you use Hood-pins (I have had a set of Hood pins sitting on the passenger side floor of my car for the past 3 weeks, just havent installed them yet)

...

Ducts description...
NACA ducts are useful when air needs to be drawn into an area which isn't exposed to the direct air flow the scoop has access to. Quite often you will see NACA ducts along the sides of a car. The NACA duct takes advantage of the Boundary layer, a layer of slow moving air that "clings" to the bodywork of the car, especially where the bodywork flattens, or does not accellerate or decellerate the air flow. Areas like the roof and side body panels are good examples. The longer the roof or body panels, the thicker the layer becomes (a source of drag that grows as the layer thickens too).

These ducts scavenge this slower moving area by means of a specially shaped Intake. The Intake shape drops in toward the inside of the bodywork, and this draws the slow moving air into the opening at the end of the duct. Vorticies are also generated by the "walls" of the duct shape, aiding in the scavenging. The shape and depth change of the duct increase air flow to your Intake manifold to cool it down, while drawing the warm air away from your air Intake and other critical engine components that usualy cause "heat soak" when warm air builds-up in those areas.

Typical uses for these ducts include engine air Intakes and cooling

I think that Hood is bad ass, time to save some money for it. Isaac, do you have to us the Hood pins that come with it? Is a safety issue or just for looks?
