2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Guess the Part
May 12, 2014
Since day one, there's been this one piece on our 2014 SLP Panther Camaro that's bugged me. So in a fit of DIY-ness, I went ahead and removed it.
Take your best guess and follow me through.
If you guessed heat extractor block off plate, you're right! You might also want to get out of the house a bit more often.
It wounds my soul to see fake vents and fake scoops, so when I found myself with two minutes, a 10mm socket and a flathead screwdriver I went ahead and removed that plate. While it doesn't leave the prettiest finish (I'll get to that in a paragraph or so), it made the extractor fully functional.
Now, along with no longer being fake, the now-big, functional hole in the hood lets out mirage-inducing amounts of heat waves at every stop light. Cool.
Now if you're the kind of guy that finds a reason to pop your hood every time you wind up parked at a Dairy Queen, you might want to invest in the SLP Heat Extractor Drip Tray. It's made to clear your supercharger and it looks like a factory piece. Don't worry, it's only $209.95.
