    Not bad at all, and it probably only cost him about 300 grand to make.

    yes but if you look closely that doesnt really help airflow INTO the engine compartment. thats more like vents, not scoops. air will come out, mostlikely hot air escaping, but not much air will be channeled in for airflow for the intercoolers.

    The pictures is actually at a funny angle, but if you look real close and look at it for a while especially on the right side, you can see that the vents are scoops to bring the air in. I wondered the exact same thing, and it just took me a while to see it.

    Its not an NSX, 100% custom. And that things nuts, pretty bad ass. I have a feeling it could do better then a hight ten second quarter mile. But maybe gearing is holding it back. And that if hes really making 800+hp

    i still see it as vents. its really hard to tell. its playing tricks on my eyes, in the middle it looks like scoops, but if i change how i look at it i can see them as vents as well. but looking at the outer portion of the scoop/vent thing, the definitely look like vents. i cant even see the outer part as being a scoop.

    some better angles, that clearly show it as vents, not scoops.
