Hi, I've got a Falcon AU that I want to give some additional cooling in the engine bay by cutting two small holes in the bonnet and making some metal air scoops to bolt on.

I wanted to check if there are any legal concerns as well as general tips.

Awesome, thanks.

I'm pretty sure its fine as long as I don't cut any support structure, but I don't know about restrictions on protrusion. Thanks for the pdf, I'll read it soon.

I believe you can cut support structure as long as you reinforce the cut out section. Shouldn't need to for a couple of heat vents though
