The MadPSI Vented Hood is a hood that is vented and made of lightweight material to enhance the looks, performance, and aerodynamics of your MR2.
FUNCTIONAL VENTS THAT REDUCE FRONT END LIFT
Aside from aesthetics, the vents on the MadPSI Vented Hood serve a very important function, when paired with a radiator relocation kit, by reducing front-end lift through the venting of air that would otherwise be trapped behind the radiator. This is especially beneficial on the MR2 since it has a twitchy and “floaty” feeling at high speeds.
FUNCTIONAL VENTS THAT IMPROVES COOLING
When paired with a radiator relocation kit, the vents on the MadPSI Vented Hood vent the air that heats up after passing through the radiator providing an improvement in cooling.
DOESN’T LEAK WATER INTO FRONT TRUNK
The MadPSI Vented Hood was designed so that it can be functional without letting water leak into the front trunk compartment. The vents on the MadPSI Vented Hood end before the weather strip lining of the front trunk compartment. When you remove the plastic piece on top of the radiator, all the water that goes through the vents in the the MadPSI Vented Hood will fall on the radiator.
We specifically designed the MadPSI Vented Hood so that the gaps between the front bumper, front fenders, headlight covers, windshield wiper cowl, and MadPSI Vented Hood were as close to stock as possible.
SMOOTH GLOSSY FINISH
Many composite parts are not smooth. When you look at them at an angle, you see waviness and bumps. When you run your hand across the surface, you feel a rough texture. When you look closely, you may even see small pinholes. To ensure the MadPSI carbon fiber Vented Hood has an amazing finish, we implemented special techniques, protected by trade secret, throughout the product development and manufacturing process. Was it more expensive? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely. The finish is as smooth as glass. When you run your hand across the surface, it glides effortlessly. Combined with our highest-grade glossy clear coat, it has a stunning mirror-like finish.
STRAIGHT WEAVE PATTERN
Many composite parts have distorted weave patterns, especially on complex surfaces. The weave pattern looks like an absolute mess when there is a concave shape, drop, or curve. Some manufacturers even paint over sections of products to hide areas where weave distortion is obvious. To ensure the MadPSI carbon fiber Vented Hood has a straight weave pattern, we use the best manufacturing facility with the best production team. These highly skilled workers are true artisans with over 15 year of experience. Is doing this more expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. The result is a beautiful straight weave unmatched in the industry. We take great pride in our straight weave pattern and instead of painting over it, we proudly display it like artwork in high-resolution close-up photographs.
CONSISTENT WEAVE PATTERN
Many manufacturers use excess leftover carbon sheets from other parts in order to save money on material costs. The result is a visible line where one carbon sheet ends and another starts and a visible misalignment of the weave pattern where the different carbon sheets meet. To ensure the MadPSI carbon fiber Vented Hood has the most consistent weave pattern, we construct every carbon fiber Vented Hood using a one-piece carbon sheet. We dispose of any excess material. Is doing this more expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. The result is a consistent weave pattern throughout the entire carbon fiber Vented Hood with no visible cuts or disjointed lines.
HIGHEST GRADE CARBON FIBER
MadPSI uses only the highest-grade carbon fiber raw material in all its products. We use the same materials used in aviation, battleships, satellites, and rockets.
