NIKU Motors is proud to introduce into 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 fiber glass reinforced plastic (FRP) 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.
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 choose. A dry test fit is required before any modifications and painting is done.
There will always be minor sanding, shaving, cutting, tweaking, adjusting, drilling and/or filling will be required prior to installing these parts. All primer finish included with the parts but be sanded as well as other preparation work required before painting. All fitting and paint preparation is the responsibility of your body shop.
