Also do I need to keep the stereo?
Not had a stereo in my RG car for the last three seasons. Just a hole in the dash.

Silhouette must remain, so I don’t see a problem with vents as long as there’s no huge scooby intakes on top?

sounds good although I was hoping to have a raised lip at the front of the hole to create a low pressure area

Nobody has moaned about something like Escort RS Turbo vents so that’s a reasonably safe bet for how much profile is of no concern? As Jim says - if it’s a Scooby/GTiR scoop it’ll quite literally stick out like a sore thumb. Something discrete probably won’t bother anyone.

Please note - I’m not an eligibiy scrutineer!
