I couldn't hold out any longer for Vis Racing to make the Fuzion style carbon fiber hood for the B15, so I ordered the OEM style hood yesterday. I would still like to see what a B15 would look like with the Fuzion style hood. For those who haven't seen it, here's a link.

that is actually a copy of the "scoot" hood for the FD (93-95) Rx7


if i wasnt at work id post a link to how hot it looks on the rx7.... but than again what doesnt look hot on an rx7? (except for blown rotors)


a funny joke amongst the rx7 guys, but sadly the truth, is these ricey scooped/vented hoods, are actually a reliability mod... somtimes dropping underhoood temps up to 25 degrees... which means a lot in the wonderful world of rotarys and popping coolant and apex seals.

Yea I was going so mention that.

IMO I don't like that hood on any car but the FD. Its cool for engines that aren't mounted transversely like ours and are a V configuration. The reason is because I bet thosescoops on the sides are functional.

It'll look pretty dumb on a sentra though.

sorry, don't like that hood on anything other than a FD. Going w/ the OEM style was a good choice.

I posted a thread about this way back in January when VIS got this style hood in for a 350z. They asked me to get opinions on it to see if it was worth producing so I did. I posted here and on the Vboard.

http://www.b15sentra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=76325&highlight=vis+fusion+hood

Although not many people participated in the poll ( :rolleyes: how hard is it to point and click) the majority of responses I got were negative. Actually I think all the responses I got were negative. Thus the hood was never made...

BTW - just curious, but how much did the OEM hood cost you?

I'll agree with whom ever posted that the OEM best suited their taste. Less is more for me. And I still don't think it the best idea to have an open hood (ie the invader, etc) exposing the alt., exhaust mani, etc... to rain and other elements at least on a DD. Yes I know there will still be exposure from spashes under the car but direct exposure dosen't seem to be the way for me. :)

This style is just way to much IMHO. :cool:
