that thing and the ac fan/compressor right next to the cooling fan is gone. unless your car didnt come with ac. it just looked like mine when i was doin the turbo install we removed ac and i was like damn..thats a shitload of extra room/

Are you sure it's the hood that needs replacing? It looks like it just isn't closing all the way.

Hmm, i find that hard to believe, your ac compressor, ac lines, condensor fan and ac condensor are gone as far as the pics show. Maybe the blower motor still works, but not any form of cooling going on.
