    SunCoast Raptor hood verses Firehawk Hood

    Tried searching but there wasn't much info on this, so does anyone what the difference is between the Firehawk hood and the Suncoast Raptor hood? They look almost identical to me, so identical that I wonder if the the Raptor hood is meant to be a replica of the Firehawk hood? I like that style a little better than the WS6 hood and can't find any Firehawk hoods for sale.

    Thanks all!

    Tony

    They are basically the same except the firehawk has heat extractors.

    I think this is the Raptor hood also called the WS9 hood. I borrowed this pic from Rowen on another post. I think this is right if i'm not let me know.

    Yep, that's called a WS9 hood. If I get a regular TA, thats the hood I'm getting.

    Actually the Raptor hood and the WS9 hood are completely different. The Raptor hood resembles the firehawk hood, that WS9 looks like a WS6 hood.

    Raptor will fit without cutting the front fascia. Firehawk hood requires modification, & woiuldn't be wise to swap back to stock after using it, as there would be horrible gaps in the front.
    And yes, ..., ^^^, What Speedy said, ..., WS9=WS6 & Firehawk=Raptor, ...

    Since SLP always made the Firehawk, I always thought SunCoast Creations called it "Raptor" because they probably couldn't just call it the Firehawk Replica without getting into naming right issues. However, they do call their WS6 replica a "WS6 replica", but WS6 (and SS's) where made by GM from 1998 and forward.

    Anyway, if....
    Raptor hood = Firehawk
    WS6 reproduction hood = WS6

    then what is the signifigance/difference with the WS9 hood? I've never heard of that before.
