    A long time ago when the 98 SS's came out, SAM bought one (School of Automotive Engineering) Son of Sam, or what ever you want to call them.

    They took a brand new SS and started experimenting. They fooled around quite a bit with the SS hood and the ram air setup. They did find some ET by making that a little more efficient. They did alot of other things, a very interesting article.
    I don't remember the magazine, but I'm sure if you google it you'll find the article.

    That very same car became their test mule, and that's the red SS you see them running in the NMCA and LS shootouts in N/A form with a stick shift, running in the 8's at over 160 mph now. As a matter of fact, they hold the record for the quickest stick shift LS without a power adder.

    Anyway, the WS6 hoods are more efficient, but I'll bet you could take some of those tricks and possibly improve on something.

    SAM showed that it was, but I'm not willing to chop on my hood. I prefered to do the free ram air mod that isn't visible. That was a solid gain for me.
