    I was looking at evo 8 hoods and I saw these pictures

    What do you guys think of putting some of these vents on a 2g?
    I think if they were cheaper I would put them on. It would be a easy mod to do. They look like they would just drop in. Couple welds and paint.

    Its dumb, won't line up because of the hump. Sorry to burst you're bubble save your cash for cf hood. Or a mirage.

    I am not sure that they will fit the contour of the hood quite right.

    not on a 2g. these will look good on a more edgy car. the 2g is too smooth for these angles.

    Anyway, here's how the evo 8 vent looks like on my galant.

    They are right about the center vents, it has been tried. But the other vent above the air filter may work.

    Looks nice on that galant :thumb:

    OK? I do want to get a hood but there so expensive. I was just thinking of something cheaper that would actually look good. I have seen the evo 8 hood mod, kind of what okm12346 did. That galant looks sweet. Reminds me of an Evo 3.

    O yea, I mean it has been done by getting a whole new hood, but also cutting out the area and dropping the inserts in. It just doesn't look right on a 2g, with it's lines and the hood bump.

    But to each their own LOL

    I agree, the 2g is too bubbly and smooth to throw in something that edgy and sharp. I would just keep the OEM hood and save up for a CF one.

    would not look right at all. also finding oem evo 3 parts is not fun and will not be cheap when you do find them and the cost of shipping over seas

    siebon sells carbon fiber hoods styled as the evo 3 hoods are, that will bolt up stock to the 2g's. I personally dislike them

    Depends on where you put the vents. Right over the turbo manifold area would functional, but they would like ass there because of the hump.

    I personally would rather have a cutout similar to the evo 8 cutout over the turbo/manifold area.

    that carbon hood is a evo 4 copy not a evo 3.

    I could take my vents out of the evo 3 and put them on the 2g hood and take a pic of it. if people want

    Yeah, can't really go wrong with stock. Especially with some custom hood vents that work fine. Check my gallery for pix :thumb:

    The one from Siebion doesn't look too bad.

    I have been planning on going with the Sebion Evo hood for a long time. Its carbon fiber (drool), decreases under hood temps, and looks bad ass!

    You could be different and just put 1 of those vents in on the passanger side so it's off set.
