yeh i just wanted to bounce the ideas off you as we will be looking at it at similar time ..

the most strait forward approach is tilton 2 peddle box on the floor with 2 square rails that extend back and mount the seat on ..this does away with the bar in the dash and the stuff in the engine bay .
but the hydraulic boosted set up would be nice on the street .. and involve a bit less tubing and retain all the standard pedal stuff ..
if any one else is interested chime in and will start hording more boosters and start drawing for laser cutting stuff .

Wow that is a massively controversial statement extracting heat from the bottom of the widscreen ???
on most cars its a high pressure area for about a foot of the bonnet possibly with the extra thing on there and the fact that a 951 has a pretty laid back windscreen ... mmm I'm skeptical .... have you proven it ??? just wool tufting ?

i would thing with your ski jump and those stepped out front guards you would easily and very logicalg get all the hot air out you need

Yes almost correct and that's exactly why the NACA's are used to help reduce the high pressure to in effect convert - I guess we need to draw a diagram to help explain as reading back my post was not 100% clear
Basically heat in the engine bay rises – Atmospheric air is forced in via the NACA ducts hitting the hot air pushing backwards inside the engine bay (at the top underside of the hood) – the air running over the lip of the deflector helps drag the hot air our working in tandem with the NACA ducts.

P.S. I'm reading on the Tilton site now but looking at another and what could be a much cheaper option

Sorry I got distracted and remembered back to my TVR days

This might be of interest from the TVR Tuscan - I'm looking to read up now:

Ya know, I'm not a huge fan of aftermarket front bumpers and kits, but I have to say...you guys do damn nice work! The kit looks to be of great quality (so far) and you guys seem to be taking the time to put out a product that requires minimal work for proper fitment.

finally, someone making a kit that looks good on the cars. I noticed you were talking about the tilton two pedal kits above. I know that Wilwood makes a two pedal kit that may be cheaper. Just throwing out a suggestion.
