NIKU Motors is proud to introduce the XTi Scooped Hood. The scoop creates a direct path from outside, straight to your top mount intercooler. Air intake temps are now close to ambient and data show a 10 degree cooler difference than with the stock hood.
Our hoods are made out of the highest quality carbon fiber (CF) are proudly made and produced in California, USA. This is the closest thing to a true “plug-and-play” product that will require minimal preparation before installation. Utilizing OEM hood internals - air channel, foam pads, and clips is an added air source to the top mount intercooler as well.
NOTE: This is for a ONE Sided CF hood. Top portion is CF, underside is FRP. Another coat of clear coat from the body shop is recommended. This product is MADE TO ORDER. Please allow a 3 week lead time to make, package, and ship out. Depending on orders and stock, some may see their part arrive sooner than 3 weeks.
A professional and custom body shop experienced in aftermarket fiberglass and carbon fiber body kits is required for proper installation and painting of these products. Aftermarket body kits do not fit like OEM products and generally require extra work for optimal fitment. Fitment will be dependent on the quality of the body shop chosen. A dry test fit is required before any modifications and painting is done.
Depending on the complexity and design of the product, there may be a slight and minor shift in the carbon fiber weaves. It is almost impossible to achieve 'perfection' with hand-land carbon fiber. These 'slight and minor shifts' in the carbon fiber weaves does not equate to the product being defective.
