    Wanted to see if anyone has any experience with these hood vents? I’m on the fence between these, Fore Style or True Forged setup. Only thing is I’m not sure if the True Forged still has the option for small holes. 7a9358ee49c85ef36720231131842026.jpg

    I am looking at something like these. OP did you have to drill anything or is the hardware to pinch the 2 plates together. I like the look of the TF piece though.

    I don’t own these, I have been seeking info from anyone who does. From their website they claim no drilling or cutting. Plus they are USA made

    I have the True Forged Diamond pattern vents and love them. I liked these a lot too but the name being printed on the top of them killed it for me.

    I sent True Forged a PM and have not heard anything back yet, they must be busy though.

    The website mentions sticker color, so likely it’s removable.

    old thread I know but since there are limited vendors for billet hood vents these days I feel like I should vouch for these. They are top notch. I run both their hood vents and their competition kit together. Looks unique and incredibly functional. The vents don't require any drilling. They come with small allen head/lock washer/ nuts and secure to a backing plate on the underside of the hood

    Great stuff from them. I used one of their vents to help get some heat out of the engine bay with the 01 cobra hood. It’s clear why they vented the 03-04 hood. I’ve seen pictures of their full 03-04 cobra hood kit and might be the next route I go when it’s time to repaint.

    I bought a car with them already on, and they work wonders for a twin turbo car. If I had to start from scratch, I would do the exact same thing. Only drawback is you don’t want to put a hose anywhere near it as you will be cleaning under hood if you keep that as clean as the exterior
    And looking at this picture, there is at least 18 inches clearance around the car, my OCD won’t let anything closer
