    Just browsing ebay and found this. Looks like a raptor with heat extractors. Is it a mecham and do you like how it looks?

    I like the hood, except where it meets the front bumper the firhawk hood molds better. That fits more like a WS6 with a overlap.

    I have to say I like the wheels alot better on the aniversary cars. I love the 99 Aniversary, one of the best looking TA's inside and out. I with they would have made it to 03 for one more aniversay i rather than that yellow collector edition. It's ok but i rather have white and bluw or black than yellow.

    How is that rice, WTF?

    I like the hood, the extractors are awesome, but I don't like the fact that the ram air has 2 vents instead of 4 like stock. If someone made a hood in the stock style with the heat extractors that would be the hood for me.

    This hood just looks cool. I've got one. Way more agressive than a WS6 hood, fully functional and it flows well with the cars contours.

    I dont understand why people think its RICE. I havent met anyone who has seen my hood in person who didnt like it.

    Both great looking hoods on those cars posted earlier.

    Let's get something straight people, rice is any tasteless mod not related to functionality or performance and since the mecham hood will improve performance over the stock ram air hood it can't be considered rice.
