    I liked the one with the heat extractors though.

    its not a raised 4" one, looks like a stock style ws6 hood with heat extractors.
    what I dont know is if it is functional, or just for show.

    that's a firehawk hood. the heat extractors are functional-they rest overtop the manifolds and as outside air flows over them, it creates a vacuum and sucks the heat off the manifolds from inside

    do you know if the front scoop parts are functional as well? ie, I would have ram air with the right components installed?

    OHHHH i'm sorry, didn't look at it until you asked that question. That is a us exotics hood. It has the split ram air vents like stock ws.6 hoods, and has the heat extractors lke a firehawk hood. It's the best of both worlds b/c firehawk hoods have a different style ram air vents. Yes, it should bolt right up to a car.

    no, it says on the website somewhere that they come in some kind of black gel coating that needs to cure before you have it painted.
