Default Pteazer Cowl Induction Hoods

I am thinking about purchasing a Pteazer Cowl Induction Hood for my PT GT. I would like to know from anyone who has purchased this hood and used it if there is truly any benefit from installing it? Does the hood reduce the air temperature in the engine compartment compared to a PT with a stock hood?

i want one also, i live close enough to
pick it up at the shop, but the hood
with painting to match is over 1000....

yes i think it helps engine bay heat,
but nothing for performance.

was at a recent show,and had an owner
tell me that his was taller than most you see.
he claimed you could order different hights.

Just remember our cars will benefit from a cooler denser charge but not from any ram air effects.

Thanks guys! I am not so much concerned about getting more power as I am cooling the engine compartment down. The engine runs so hot, that the heat has to affect other components in close proximity. My strut bar is almost too hot to touch after I drive my GT for any extended period. If the cowl induction hood effectively cools the engine compartment down, then it is a good investment to me. And it looks great too!!

I like the ram air too. I have the cold air being dropped over my cold air intake for the turbo this helps get more cold air in the turbo too. the heat openings in the back let hot air out of the engine compartment as well.

Depends where on the back those openings are. If close to the base of the windshield, they could also force cold air in... The base if the windshield is a high air pressure location. And as we all know, air moves from high pressure to low pressure.

Read the link I posted. it tells it like it is. That's why I have a PTeazer hood! well 1st cause of the look, 2nd cause it will pull cool air over the turbo when moving, & let the built up heat out when stopped.
