    A question for 355 buffs...............

    Hi all,

    Ok, this may be a lil bit confusing, as I am not awake yet, so bear with me...lol..... Ok, on a 355 GTB, or GTS right behind the quarter glass is there a vent there?? The trailing edge of the body design flares out right behind the quarter glass, and I am curious as I think I would put a vent there... Let's face it, mid-engine cars may be the more better for handling, but they run hotter cuz of the engine placement.......

    I think I may have asked this question alot easier than I thought I would.... ;D

    i know that MR2's have a vent there, mine does, but it does not go to the engien bay though, i'm not entirely sure where it does go but i think it's to vent out any heat transmitted through the firewall/chassis

    mid engined cars pull air from under as well as above the car for cooling, the MR2 pulls air underneath and vents it out on top, a fiero is much more insulated and needs any extra vents you can put on there. that little one wont really do much though.

    HI all,

    Even if they just cool the exhaust a bit, the vents would be worth it! If nothing else but to look cool too!

    It feeds the air intake. on a spider the air intake is fed from the top of the door scoop.

    Hi all,

    Thanx for the photo's, I had always wondered where the engine had gotten it's air intake.... Even though the second pic is of a 348, it is a safe assumption that it works the same with a 355 too.........

    The 348 and 355 use the same body and air delivery systems.

    Have a safe new year.
