    In the market for a ram air hood, differences?

    Can someone tell me(preferably show) ALL the differences for a 1998-2002 style ram air hood? I've seen some nice ones but notice subtle differences in them and can't tell which one I want. So links and pictures would be great. Thank you

    Here is my hood. US Exotics WS9 ram air hood. Other than the heat extractors, I think it's identical to a factory hood.

    It does identical to stock, I like that hood a lot. Link to that website? What is a decent price to pay for one if I see one on ebay?

    One area i'm seeing a big difference is the area between the openings where it meets the bumper. Some look like they are smooth & meet flush with the bumper and some like the picture above don't really???

    You'll find it on Ebay. Just search for WS9. I got mine for $395, but that's the cheapest its ever been sold for...they usually go for $600-$700.

    Is there anything that is like a combination of the two hoods above? I like the WS9 hood but the smoothness(especially the area between the hood/bumper/ram air) on the hawk is nice but not so noticeable "ram air" hood.

    its usually a seven day auction bidding starts at 1 dollar, i waited till the last ten seconds to submit mine while it submitted the auction ended thus making me the victor.

    I guess mine would be in the middle. It's from SLP. It's taller than the factory and only has the two scoops. No heat extractors though...

    What I was asking was what date did you win the auction and was it shipped to you already or are you still waiting?

    well check it out man go to ebay and type WS9 then go to the hood selling by the seller: USExotics. his autions average anywhere from 450-800 plust shipping (depends on where you live) but you pay the hood, and shipping you pay when it gets to you.

    and 800bucks for a painted hood is okay i guess i havent asked around for a price to paint a hood.
