Default Turbo stick out the hood.

Well the new turbo sticks out the hood MORE than the old one so i have to cut the hood.rather than have the turbo hot and cold side just sticking out I'm making some covers that will go in the hood to cover them.made them out of 3.5 inch polished 90* that i cut the top off of.. ill attach them to the hood.

Jason , i can cut it without messing up the paint.

2baditsnotachev and 25mack, im not sure if im going to paint them or not..car is candy blue and candy colors aren't easy to match. as for attaching them, ill glue them in from the underside using Fusor panel bond. we use it at the shop to glue 1/4 panels and roofs on cars and its 10Xs stronger than welding.so it should hold these 2oz things.

Looks good .

Can you get a blanket on the turbine ?

I would definitely try to protect the paint in that area maybe with heat shield if a blanket wont fit . .
