Replace your worn out, faded and cracked plastic OEM hood vents with these replacement hood vents for the Datsun 280Z. Improve the look and airflow over standard venting.
Sold as a pair.
"Based on the Bernoulli principle, the air flow over the top of the louvers will create a vacuum and pull the air out from under the hood. With the opening facing rearwards the air passing over the first one will suck air out through it, that air will be forced over the next louvre sucking air out through that, and so on."
They are .063" aluminum and are CNC cut with 10 louvers in each vent. Installation templates and hardware are included.
The installation video shows a discontinued hood vent with 6 louvers, but current production-spec hood vents have 10 louvers in each vent, as pictured.
NOTE: Use a gentle touch when installing - do not over-tighten.
We also offer S30 Race-Style Hood Vents.
As many of you may know, only the 1977-78 280Z came with hood vents in the hood.
But from time to time, early model S30 owners reach out to us and ask if our 280Z Hood Vents will work for their earlier application. The short answer is, probably yes.
If your Z has the 77-78 280Z-style hood with hood vent openings, these 280Z Hood Vents will be compatible (take a look at the installation video to confirm your vent openings are OEM, feel free to email us with any specific fitment questions).
For owners with hoods that don’t have holes for hood vents, you'll need to do some cutting and drilling in your hood to install, but you can certainly use our hood vents.
