Post Hood damper kit - IN PRODUCTION - (VIDEOS IN THREAD)
Hi to everyone here on mx-3.com . I've done a hood damper kit (bolt on) for the Mx-3 1991-98 chassis code ''EC''.

Price: CAD 120$

The kit contains:

-2 Nitrogen filled dampers
-4 M8 x 1.25 Zinc plated Ball joint type studs and nuts
-All instructions and measures to bolt-on fit on your vehicle
-2 year warranty

-After the installation of this kit, you no longer need hood rod.

-The kit add about 1 pound to the car.

-The kit will fit CF hoods, but is first designed for metal ones. The only reverse-side for CF hoods will be: The hood will open slightly faster due to weight reduction of the item itself.

Here are the videos: I know the car is dirty, but winter projects always end like this !!!!

:shock: ...ohh, count me in, pending pictures. Also, assuming this is on a stock hood, will they be to strong / any problem for a CF hood?
thanks in advance.
:D

$160 CAD is the same as USD now and to be honest as cool as that would be I can't see spending 160 on it. so like he said what makes it so much better and worth that much?

Most kits are sold in the range of 300$. If you think all kits will fit, try it by yourself. You will find that is more complex than it appears first !

Pictures are coming this weekend.

And thanks again for new products development encouragement !

Its not that people are discouraging development, it's that its $160 for some hood shocks. If people can get basically the same thing for $130 less, we just want to know what makes them worth that much more?

If they can get some for 130$, all they have to do is to buy it !

I'm happy for everyone if they can find a kit for 130$.

Pictures are coming this evening.

Thanks.
