Have you tried driving the car without AC, just ambient temperature (turn temp dial to 60 degree) for 30 mins+? The bottom of some aftermarket hoods were not made exactly as OEM hood. When closed, they leave a gap between the hood and that rubber piece that blocked the heat from coming in to the air micro filter. That's the problem with my Seibon hood.

No they were done by Auto Couture Motoring. Opened up, sprayed in black and the halos were swapped out with LED's

Honestly i cant tell any difference at all. im not the racing type so performance wise i cant give you a straight answer. styling this hood definitely has.
