    I've been mulling this over for a while, would cutting louvres in the bonnet or fitting a subtle vent in the bonnet get any additional cool air to the S2000 filter, or does the vent in the wing suffice?

    Heat isn't really an issue as the air goes through a red hot turbo anyway. If you are worried about flow then remove a headlight :undwech:

    can imagine it would help a little bit with flow, doubt it'ld make much difference temperature wise. i think it would pain me to see one on the roads though. on a track then it's fair enough. everyone has their own tastes and all that though

    I could do with something like that on mine.... Probably just getting rid of the bonnet totally... When I drive mine hard now the heat coming out of the back of the bonnet is unreal...
