Default Seibon Carbon Fiber + OEM inner duct

I have a 17’ STI and Just picked up a year old Seibon CF hood. I looked and didn’t see any mounting holes for the stock inner duct. Has anyone mounted this before? Is it even necessary? Also I see they recommend hood pins but I barely see anyone using them unless your racing, are hood pins overkill? Thanks

The CF hoods are intended for front mount cars. If you still have a top mount, you will have to modify the hood to make the ducting work and yes, you have to have it.

I just did pins on mine as they said you're supposed to but they seem like overkill. I don't see how you'd ever have enough upward force on the hood, given the vents (assuming you're vented).
