Re- weather strip removal - I'm pretty sure that this area is a high pressure zone - which is why the cabin air intake is located there and why EVO IX's have an inlet there. Removing the vent strip is more likely to suck cold air into the hood rather than vent hot air out - not necessarily a bad thing.

Spent the day fitting the '99 nose and headlights.

I pushed the passenger side front fender, inwards at its front, ages back. So spent a couple of hours straitening it and adjusting it back to where it fits. Got everything lined up nice!

I got a set of NIB head and side lights to which I added LED's and OMG what a difference over 26 year old headlights lol.

I have sized and cut templates for new SMIC, cold air inlet and radiator ducts. They will get fabricated along with an undertray/splitter while its in for paint and will go on after I get it back.

The next big job will be fabricating a cold air inlet and air-box. Currently, the two filters are pulling hot air in from the passenger side radiator fan - not ideal lol.

Having serious second thoughts on hood vents. I really love the simple flowing lines of the stock hood and '99 nose. I have spent some time trying to design hood vents that complement the clean lines and curves - but failed miserably.

So am starting to move away from hood vents on the basis that:

1) the heat shielding around the turbos and headers have already made a huge improvement to IATs;
2) a cold air feed and airbox should give a big additional benefits to IAT - just stopping the front radiator fans from being the primary source of inlet air will be a big improvement.
3) the undertray/splitter's purpose is to create down-force by generating a low pressure zone under the nose. This will also vent hot engine bay air under the car behind it - which is how Mitsubishi did it originally.
