    Interesting. I contemplated positioning it the same way you did, but I opted to put it in front of the 2 middle air vents, as I did not want to eliminate all vented air from the engine compartment. Will be interesting to compare results, if I ever get mine back together.

    That's actually a good point. Any other opinions out there on this???? Easy enough to run one air vent back through the wall into the engine bay area leaving the 3 remaining for fresh air intake. I'm going to install a temp gauge on both sides of the barrier so I can compare the differences. Any opinions as to top speed improvements or not.... All new to me I'm just trying different things I've seen.... Tried to purchase the heat barrier from Rivas but the "Kit" or just the barrier will not be out till Nov. 2011 according to their parts dept. WHAT!!! Can't wait for that so I built my own...

    Man this looks like a great setup! So do we atleast want to run one of the vented hose's to the engine or both?

    There are 2 vent hoses in the engine compartment and 2 up front. I do not think anyone here has tested yet to know the answer. Hopefully Glade Rider will soon. The only issue I had mounting the bulkhead behind the hoses, was that I had to drill out the rivets to remove the holders out of the way to intall the bulkhead without bending it. Here is a pic that gives an idea. The only thing I do not like about my setup is that it would be difficult to remove.

    Looks good.. I actually zip tied my barrier to the two holders and then taped over them. Barrier is a tight fit to install/remove but it will go in and out without bending it. I'll test it this weekend and if heat on the engine side becomes a problem I will run one or both of the lines into the engine compartment.. Anyone know of a good temp gauge to use on each side??????
