Looks good. Did it come out fairly clean on the underside? I wish the OE JDM hoods came with vents this size. They fit the car really well, IMO.

Thanks mark. It's not bad under side I fabed a bracket a little larger than
The vent, cut out the center and drilled holes to match the bolts. I'll take a pic of it tomorrow.

I'd like to see the underside. Is there deflectors that keep rain from running all over the engine? Looks great. I like the larger size versus the JDM VR4's.

My original post stated they were evo purple..i figured smart people who love mitsubishi would know where they were from..sorry I wasn't clear.. I'm surprised with how many people on Facebook and here can't identify the vents and keep asking where I got them. Anyway her is the underside..

Not pretty but it works..

LOL smart people don't take pics from 10+ feet away then upload into a site that shrinks it down....

Look great, even the underside came out pretty good.

I wondered about that but didn't want to sound stupid. What do the plates look like to prevent that?

I like the contrast. That's why I left my vents black as well.

I like these way more than the GVR4 jdms. Looks really nice. The lines flow well with the hood too. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for said vents?

Very very tempted on getting the Evo 3 hood vents. I also want a legit RS hood but since they are coming from Malaysia and the likelyhood of them getting shipped bent ends is a bit concerning for me.

I would love to have some vents as well, let me know where you get yours from. I'd rather just cut into my hood than pay for shipping for the same thing with vents from the other side of the world. $$$$
