Range Rover - Engine compartment venting


The idea is to fit a pair of louvers or vents at the cowl or rear of the hood to draw hot engine bay air out, and help engine run cooler and in a cooler space. Below are clips from rover listserv:

For many years I have used the rear ventilation grilles from the Volvo 240
station wagon, part #3522732, cost US$12.99 each.
They are very effective. Look on the D pillar right side, ventilation grille for tank and filler.


I also bought a pair of these Volvo vents for my RRC, sorry about pix, I took them at night in the garage.  Do yourself a favor, find some hardware that doesn't rust on the first mud hole you go through, then send me a set! Oh, I want black hardware, not stainless steel, thanks...



FWIW, these guys in the UK http://www.coollouvres.com
and many body shops and rod shops in the U.S. will louver the hood/bonnet.

try www.whitworths.com.au
search on 923338 or 92379, 92350, 92304, 92312, 92300,92302, 92387, 92361 they even have a 12 bilge blower which could be plumbed to extract air from under bonnet part 09001 Duct 142802 duct vent 92320

and click on "bonnet flute" (Oz version of hood) looks great, but i beleive they press it into the original "hood", so not much good if you live out of oz. ad oz
