    Default Inferno hood - holding water

    When I open the hood on my 07 I hear water sloshing around and some comes out of the ram air opening near the opening by the airbox. Has anyone heard of this issue before and how to prevent it? When I get home today I will see if there is a drain hole blocked??????

    when i told my body shop i was buying the inferno package off of the web he cringed at the thought. when he got the parts he opened up the boxes and that changed his mind. His words after all was done was "the best i have seen". He has been doing body work for 20+ years. the shop name is Tc-Touch in st. marry's, oh. these parts are bolt on ready. My advice would be is the lower front air dam comes with tape to put on. Take the tape and throw it away and pay a shop to have it molded with the front bumper. As far as the hood it does hold water take and drill a small whole in the underside near the front to allow for drainage. other than that it is a very good product. when I had a question they answered fast good customer service I will do more with guys."

    Yeah the water always annoyed me. I just figured it was something I had to deal with. The hood I have on my Stealth holds a little bit of water too, but not as bad due to the duct placement.

    I drilled two small holes at the back of the hood so it will drain into the cowl. I made two in the front corners as well. water started draining out so hopefully it works.
