The Verus Engineering Hood Louver Kit for the VA WRX and STI helps reduce engine bay heat and pressure. During the design process; we wanted to utilize the OEM hood to reduce cost, complexity and overall weight. This resulted in a product that retains the hood's structural rigidity, ensuring the hood retains its shape after years of use.
This hood louver kit is for the VA WRX/STI owner looking for a purposely placed, built, and tested louver kit that ultimately weighs less than most carbon vent hoods.

Utilizing CFD, we were able to place the louvers in an area of low pressure while still ensuring the hood's structure was fully retained. This improves the evacuation and function of our hood louvers. Our hood vents dramatically decrease underhood temps by relieving hot air from the engine bay and cooling system. These louvers will also reduce pressure build-up in the engine bay, also known as hood flutter. The side benefit would be a slight increase in front-end downforce. It is highly recommended to use the supplied wickers to increase evacuation.
