    But the front of it doesn't look right to me, like the baffles, I was thinking Glasstex? but they come with chicken wire as baffles i think some other members cut out the wire and glued in the plastic baffles.
    anyone do this?

    it looks pretty much like stock...and for $400, i would just get a factory ws.6 hood if thats the look your going for. it will probably fit waaaayyy better and look good. just my opinion

    How do they look though, do they have the crusty nostrils or any heat extractors? I just want to get a oem looking hood for not the ridiculous price

    The openings on the Nostrils look small and weird compared to an oem hood. I definetly wouldn't buy it because of that, but it's not my car. If you like it, go for it.

    i agree too, i noticed it when i first looked at them a few months ago. They look too spaced apart or something.

    just about all of these references for hoods on this thread are for ram air "style" hoods....hint: if the ad don't say genuine gm factory hood or similar, its a fake! buyer beware....

    Looks like a direct copy of the Suncoast Creations hood. The nostrils are rectangular in shape. There is no inset to them either. Also, they come up higher near the cowl area, which looks good from the inside of the car, but not always from the outside.
