Took an idea from a fellow JF'er and went out and bought some HVAC floor register vents for $6 a piece. Took the adjustable flap out of it (2 seconds) then drilled holes along the edge and will be mounting it with 1/8" rivets. I will be trimming the bottom of it so that it's doesn't sink too far into the engine bay.
Here are what the GenRight Hood Vents look like.. for $60 + SHIPPING... pfftt lol
Well it was gorgeous outside today (+6 C) so I installed my hood HVAC vents lol... first time ever cutting into body, why not start with the middle of the hood haha.. install went very well, and it is a very clean look and functional.
Started with carboard templates..measured a few times
Masked off, cut inside the lines
j OO p
Took the instake hose off just incase, and also taped off the openings to avoid shard intake
Well I just got my THOR Cowl Intake today.. I got it at 8pm this evening, and went out to install it in the dark on my driveway.. came out very well and it sounds nice a throaty at WOT.. not loud during cruising speeds or gradual acceleration

Stock air box removed
Used a 5" hole saw but that wasn't quite enough for top clearance..
While looking through older pics today I realized how old and gross the side molding looked.. so when I got home from work today I taped them off and painted them black..looks much better in my opinion.
I also tossed on my 2 friends company decal on, for local support "Torrent Offroad" (Purple of course), as well as 2 "cowl induction" decals
