The Verus Engineering Hood Louver Kit helps reduce engine bay heat and pressure. By improving the flow out of the engine bay, the louvers are able to improve airflow through the radiator and charge air cooler; achieving better cooling stack efficiency. By reducing the pressure buildup in the engine bay, the louvers reduce front end lift, creating a slight bump in front end downforce.
During the design process; we wanted to utilize the OEM hood. This resulted in a product that retains most of the hood's structural rigidity and ensures the hood retains its shape after years of use.
This hood louver kit is for the Fiat 500 Abarth owner looking for a purposely placed, built, and tested louver kit that greatly reduces engine bay temps and pressure from the turbocharged engine.

Underhood temperature is an issue with most cars that see track duty and our hood louvers greatly decrease these temperatures by evacuating the hot air in the engine bay and pulling in cooler air from the radiator/grill area. This improves cooling stack efficiency by increasing the pressure delta between pre and post cooling stack. Another benefit of the louvers is a reduction in front end lift by reducing the underhood pressure. This is also known as downforce!
