Hood will probably be too aggressive with the kams lines. get like the BRS tuning.

yeah invader is very aggressive, personally I prefer that, but I don't know if I'd combine it with the kaminari. Any pics of examples??

i want to get something that is a little more agressive than the stock Hood, like the BRS but it was discontinued. i was thinking about the extreme gt Hood but it looks a little funny with all the vents. it might look better in person though confused

the kaminari kit is clean, while the vis invader Hood is aggressive.

BUT

you can put rmm sideskirts on your kaminari front/rear (a great combo..most of us know this by now). the rmm sideskirts add a little bit more aggressiveness to the kaminari body kit so maybe the Hood won't look so out of place (this is the setup i want...and if i ever get $$ this is exactly what i'll do..whether it looks too aggressive or not)

also, if you put some nice graphics (like the veilside replica ones) and racing rims will add a more aggressive look to your car with a kaminari kit, but not make it look out of place. besides this, there are other small things you can do to improve the aggressiveness of your kaminari kit so that the Hood will not feel so out of place--while still keeping the car clean looking and flowing properly.

that said, i have never seen a pic (and beleive me--i searched the web over for this because i want the same thing) of a celica with a kaminari kit and a vis invader Hood (i can't find one anywhere--see if you can get a photochop). i doubt anyone else has seen a picture of this setup either. so while i can't say for sure that it would flow fine...no one else can say for sure that it doesn't. the best bet would to try and get a photochop of it maybe.
