    One idea I had for venting engine heat (if you were gonna drive it), might be to make ducts that fit the top of the engine cover, and actually put electric fans in the big vents to pull the heat out...plus as a bonus...if your engine overheats of smokes, you'll actually get stuff coming out of the vents and people will just think it's cool and not in distress.

    The previously mentioned CAD files provide a new base engine cover to replace the factory one. This cover has holes cut in it to allow the engine to cool. No fans necessary as the factory cover doesn't need them either. Of course this only applies, or is even necessary, of you're going for a full conversion.

    Ahh ok, I hadnt looked at the CAD files yet. Still with fans you could do cool effects, just add smoke makers n stuff....hehe.
