    Varies. If you want an oem, buy from somebody. I got mine off of a ws6 on craigslist for $500 which matched my paint. Didn't have to worry about color matching. Can't speak for the aftermarket replicas, although there are some very nice ones.

    Cost me $400.00 for an oem hood from 1 of these forums and $1500. to have it installed and repainted and then the whole front of my car was recleared.They did a great job and it looks original.

    Yeah, I would have checked the RPO first, haha. I personally don't like raptor hoods, but I wouldn't see the reason on getting it and not keeping the WS6 hood and then putting the WS6 back on for resale unless something happened to the WS6 hood. Look for three RPO codes : WS9, Y82, and WS6 for a Trans Am WS6.

    from what I understand these LS1 engines were built to last, I believe GM did a real quality job on them especially being it was the same engine in their top of the line vette's back in the day, I just stored mine today, Minnesota winters suck! when I parked her for the season the milage hit 99,700 'im second owner and bought it with 40,000 some miles about 5 years ago and really the only maintance I have ever really had to do was new tires and I have had oil and coolant leaks i have had to fix but thats about it, oh and they do get a little squeaky and creaky with age but what do ya expect they are f-bodys LoL -Jason
