Thank you. You have rated this product.

Make your radiator more effectve and massively Increase COOLING!

Reduces under-hood pressure by 50%
Dramatic Improvement in engine cooling efficiency
Decreases lift on the front of the car
Backed by data developed through pressure and flow testing
Outperforms every hood vent option tested (by a lot)
Specifically designed for the NC Miata hood
Retains hood rigidity and the use of the stock hood latch
Designed and produced in the USA

Hoods vents are a key element to improving the cooling system effectiveness. Reducing the pressure behind the radiator creates a larger differential between the front and rear of the radiator. The larger the pressure differential, the greater the airflow through your radiator. Reducing underhood pressure also cuts down on lift under the front of the car, improving downforce.

These louvers work in the lightweight factory aluminum hood to minimize cost and you do not have to deal with poor fitment of aftermarket hoods, and does not sacrifice hood rigidity so that even the stock hood latch can still be used.

This is a DIY installation part. That said, Singular MotorSports gave careful thought to ease of install from the beginning and you get a full vinyl cutting template specific to the MX-5 Miata. The cut template removes the guesswork from your install, just stick it on and it shows you where to cut. Also included is rubber trim that fits around the circumference of the holes, making it easy to achieve a clean and finished look.

The louvers ship flat (unbent), you bend the fins when you receive them, and the finish work is up to you. Powdercoat will have great longevity, but even simple Rustoleum flat black looks fantastic.


What you get:

Precision waterjet aluminum louvers
Integrated gurney flap design
Aluminum rivet mounting hardware
Rubber trim to cover the cut edge for a clean look
Chassis specific vinyl cut template.

REVIEWS

I just installed the Borla exhaust on the MX5. Sweeeeeeet! Thanks, Andy

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
