    I thought the WS-9 hood was the one on the Firehawks, with the integrated snorkels on the front and the heat extractors on the sides. I think this one is ugly as sin, but I suppose if you've got a tall carb and/or a large roots blower on the intake, this would help.

    thats the 4 in rise. the ws9 has a 3 in rise, but the ports arent bigger than a stock hood. its just taller.

    Here is the regular WS9 hood. It think it looks great, but I'm a little partial.

    ugh! it just kindas cuts off on the end that is the lamest part. i like the five inch hood with the exteension so it stretches to the windshield. i think that one looks better.

    it also kinda looks like the ram air holes are just too little to match those giant air ducts. it looks a little funny i think. i bet it works grea though for guys who have a tunnel ram or some other tall intake

    this is strange to me...
    conversion headlights and a body kit to make the car look super-low profile....
    then a huge Amplified-Scoop type WS-6 Hood

    and a WS9 hood would be what most call a "plain jane" hood... WS9 is the base trans/formy code.... DER DER DER!
