    VFNfiberglass works hard to keep their customers happy, so if the hood you purchase does not align up right, give them a call. they will do their best to help you to make for a perfect fit.

    you could go back with the SLP hood, but it's pricey. not sure if Suncoast makes them, but that's another popular brand.

    There's a VFN employee on this site, forgot the screen name, but they seem very helpful and earnest about trying their best to make things right for both parties involved in the transaction.

    I like the low-rounded cowl hoods on our cars.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    If the Ultra-Z hood works (fits) my Volant CAI then that's what I'm gonna get. So who's the VFN employee. I gotta ask some questions......

    when you start trashing their hood, talking about how it won't fit. s/he will come on and give their side of the story, and a lil info the customer never tells you.

    read all threads s/he posted in first to get the whole story. not sure how often they come on.

    I haven't bought a hood yet so nothing to trash. I'm just wondering if it'll work with my CAI.

    it was good. originally i wasn't happy with the projected time that they had for the hood to be finished and sent to me...but in the end it was fine. they claimed it would be 2 months before i got it but it turned out that i had the hood at my door in 3 weeks! talk about amazing. price was great...$600 verses $1k for a stock hood. fit and finish is nearly perfect...you can't expect 100% perfection from an aftermarket fiberglass hood...but by and large the product is awesome.
