    US Exotic's did mine. Little pricey, $700 for just the hood. Plus i got the heat extractors, WS6 airbox, install etc... I didnt pay for it, so it didnt put a huge whole in my wallet!

    YUCK! Honestly i think it looks ugly. (No offense to any1 who has one) I like the look of the WS6 hood better. Not a big fan of the hawk hood either

    I had a SCC hood, WS6-style, on my 99 Trans Am and I liked it at first but then it became another reason for me to get another car. I just didn't like the fit of the hood.

    I can't say much for any of the other brand hoods since I haven't seen or had them, but I hear that VFN is the one to get.

    I have ASCD and have no problems with it. It also is made exactly like the factory hood so you can use your stock air box or do like I did and install the factory ram air lower air box. I think with most other hoods you have to change the air box to make it work.

    i dont know what you are looking for but you can get a 4" ram air hood from
    www.vfnfiberglass.com they make them for your year and they also have a 5" cal but that is if you are going for a more aggressive look i also think they have the stock ws6 hood for around 400 but i am not sure

    ive heard that about suncoast creations as well...

    have u checked out ws6store.com? they have a ws6 hood for 500$, 580 functional. i think thats the best one ive found so far for the price.

    what about the ws9 hood?


    EDIT: the ws9 hood on vfn looks hot!

    i have looked at every kind of hood out there i think,yea the ws6 store one is a good price,there are several ones out there for 400-500$ but those kind of worry me i am thinking "u get what u pay for".i want to keep it under 1300$ hood shipping and painted.i really like the slp H O hood,and the ramairhood.com one u can get painted and has a 1yr warranty on hood and paint shipped-painted 1300$ that is alot, but we will see.
