i disagree, vented cf hoods give you a boost of at least 50 hp, add a few decals and you're looking at AT LEAST 70 hp more than stock

if you're putting it on an MS3 w/ a top mount inter-cooler and it's functional I don't see how it's rice.... I know the stock hood still offers the "ram air" design but what's wrong w/ an open vent on the hood if it's functional? So is every OEM Subaru STi "rice" because they have vented hoods? I really like the Streetunits hood personally it's too much $$$ for me right now.

i agree with NCSU08MS3.

there are 2 major design flaws with our ms3 having a tmic.
1. they put the intercooler right on top of the engine (serious heat soak), unlike the wrx/sti which is more to the back and off of the motor.
2. the hood my have "ram air scoops" in the front, but lets face it, they don't do much unless you are actually moving more than 5mph. where as having a scoop on the hood like the 2010 ms3 would let heat vent out the top while stopped and let more air in while moving.
