Mine came in quickly and nicely packaged. Haven't installed it yet but probably will over the winter break.

@LAWlence what do you think about just installing one vent on the side over the headers? Also, what do you do in the rain?

These have been tested in heavy rain without any issues. There are no electronics on the left side, and the right side is positioned far enough over that no water touches the top of the engine.

Obviously when washing the car, try not to spray a direct stream into the vents. If you are paranoid, make sure to keep the plastic engine cover over the valve cover installed. I don't run one haven't noticed any water on the valve cover even when it rains.

As far as installing just one vent, that would probably help with engine bay temps. For track use, you will want both vents for maximum front lift reduction.

Wonder if there is a way you could make some kind of under tray so that when it's closed its actually closed and the engine bay wouldn't get wet?

Example being if you don't have a garage and park your car outside. Sure you can close it but that addition would be really cool.

I'll see if there's enough demand to develop something like that. But like I said, there aren't any critical electrical components immediately under the vents. The airbox is under the driver side (which is sealed) and the other side is the coolant reservoir.

I hope to have an E36 specific part available within the next month or so -- there seems to be good demand, so I will have something soon!
