Have any Forester owners been audacious enough to install hood vents to improve heat dissipation? I wouldn't mind doing some, if I found the right ones - I just don't want to be the pioneer. :lol:

Know anyone with a 98-01 2.5 RS or Outback sport? There hoods have a similar crease and maybe one of those vents could be added.

On the rx7 club there were a couple of hood vent projects. One was louvers, another was cutting around the hood skeleton and then filling the hole with mesh from mcmaster carr.

If I were going to do it, I think i'd either go with the rs vents (I think, above), or the fender vents from a range rover sport

or pontiac grand prix gxp

or the saleen f150


I'd definitely have someone shoop them first though, because ugly vents can jack up the look of a car pretty quick.

If you do this PLEASE post pics as I've thought about this on and off for about 2 years but could never find a good looking vent. I always thought the 22B vents might work but didn't know they could be bought individually. Great find there.
