If you would like to place an order, please send an email to vraptor@midlands.net and list the parts you’d like to order.  Also, please include your shipping address and we will reply with a total including shipping.  I can accept personal check or Paypal or send you a Paypal invoice that will allow you to pay with credit card, even if you don’t have a Paypal account.

VRaptor SpeedWorks, LLC is the one-stop-shop for all of your track-day or custom louver needs!  These EZ Install louvers are designed to be mounted right to the top surface of your hood.  The perimeter of the louvers will hide the cut edge of the hood and many of these have rivet hole locations already pierced right into the perimeter.  These louvers ship flat so that you can lay them out flat on your hood to use as a template to position them and trace out the locations to make your cuts.  The louver blades are easily formed by hand, using the supplied braces as a guide to form them to the proper angle so that the braces can be installed.  Once assembled, we use 3M 8115 panelbonding adhesive to bond the braces to each louver blade on the bottom side of each louver blade to create a rigid assembly that will add strength back into your hood once the louvers are riveted into place.

These louvers are designed to evacuate heat and pressure from under the hood of your car, giving you a cooler running car with increased downforce and improved component longevity.

We have included a photo at the bottom of this page that shows some of the different models of louvers next to each other so you can get a better sense of the size of each model in comparison to others.
