Question

Hmm...I wonder if people would be interested in a functional OEM-looking fender vent.

It seems like a lot of work. Especially when prova already makes one

Beat the Prova price point, and you'll have a seller.

I love this idea. While I'm already painting my 17-18 Bumper mod on my 14. I think I'll do this. Why not, I'm already cutting everything and the car looks like it's been raped.

I have the large Hood louvers on order. So what the hell...!

Turbo + underhood temperature = sucks

Thanks,

Cool but they didn’t cut the back so it isn’t functional.

It’s from the GRMN (gazoo racing) 86 I think it’s a 2016. It’s nearly impossible to source parts from.



I like how it bulges out in the front to block high pressure air from hitting the vents. The bulge seems to extend into a canard, allowing the air to vent underneath that surface where air pressure is low.
