What do u add to ur hood hinges to make them look like this?

Hey guys i wuz wondering what people use on their hood hinges to make
them lift up...idk if u guys kno what im talking about...?

They usually do them to cars when they do a swap and the hood
hits the engine so they give it that little lift from where the hinges r at?
Or do they have to purchase some new hinges...?

Does anyone kno what their called???
I want to do it to my car cuz it looks pretty decent cuz it gives a
semi- agressive look...in my opinion...!

Heres a pic of this sick ass hatch and u guys can see how the top back of his hood is lifted.....
and the other pic u can see where the hinge is at...it has like a spacer or idk what it is...does anyone kno what their using on it...
thanx...

Re: What do u add to ur hood hinges to make them look like this?

they are called hood risers. most ppl just use washers or nylon spacers, put in between the hinge and the hood.

Yup, you can get them at your local hardware store. Looks terrible on Preludes IMO, more-so the fourth gen.

Re: What do u add to ur hood hinges to make them look like this?

exactly. its not overdone, very simple and subtle . but most importantly is that it actually WORKS which is why i did it. not for looks.

Re: What do u add to ur hood hinges to make them look like this?

actually, this was in a recent import tuner mag. sept 2009. the test car was a miata and they found that the differences were this
intake temp
max temp idle 173 stock, 156 lifted
avg temp driving 100 stock, 93 lifted
low temp driving 96 stock, 86 lifted
underhood temp
max temp idle 171 stock, 167 lifted
avg temp driving 134 stock, 112 lifted
low temp driving 119 stock, 98 lifted

Re: What do u add to ur hood hinges to make them look like this?

Late model miata or early? With the NA series you could also achieve a 65% underhood temp reduction by flipping up the headlights. This was obviously at the expence of aerodynamics.

Hey Nick, mine looks like that too. But it's because my hood isn't aligned. JK.

Re: What do u add to ur hood hinges to make them look like this?

Re: What do u add to ur hood hinges to make them look like this?

I finally did it to my car and it looks pretty decent...!!

I looked them up online and i found some on ebay as hood risers
for 36 bucks which were kool cuz they came in color but they were
freaking expensive...so i went to Lowes yesterday and looked for
Nylon Spacers and they looked exactly like the ones on ebay expcept
they werent in color and i spend like $4 on them...way cheaper...
i also bought 10mm bolts which which were like 64 cents that fit perfect..!

The only pain in the ass wuz that the hood wuz friggin heavy...lol
so i had my bro and a friend help me out...!

but it looks good IMO....!

ill try to post to post pics up...and u dont need a DIY as it wuz mentioned
already...u can do it like in 10-20 min...!
