personally i dont like the look when the bonnet is jacked up

many other ways of getting air out the engine and to keep it looking std.

also you have to alter your bonnet catch when you jack the bonnet meaning its closer to the radiator.

just my thoughts

also a 2.0 shouldn't get to hot if your radiator is functioning properly and you have a decent cooling system its not exactly producing that much power and the engine physically isn't any bigger

when sitting in traffic mine gets warm quick but when going and on full boost my temp guage is right on the bottom bar of the norm.

and thats with a red hot(not joking it physically glows red hot) turbo chrager less than an inch for it which boils the water in the rad at that point

Tony :D

I like the look of it. not too sure about the bonnet pins, risks being a bit boy-racer ish.

Yes mate from the big shit hole called donny

i got a set of stainless steel bonnet pins sitting here atm, going to be putting them on and losing the ford catch as it will be in the way of the intercooler and rad setup.

not doing it for looks its purely for function.

if you want bonnet pins for looks do the flush fit locking ones.

works style clips do look terrible but they perform a function

its all about function before form the way propper fords were designed and the way they should stay
