    what kind of hood? now with pics

    I bought a ram air hood from a local guy recently and i was wondering how to tell what brand it is. There in not any words or numbers or anything stamped on the underside that i have found yet. Not that it really matters to me but i was just curious, i paid 450 for it with all the hardware and it was already black and matched my car just as well as the factory one and the paint is flawless. Thanks in advance for any help.

    pics.... hopefully





    I hope this works. My brother talked me into painting the grilles to match all of my emblems, it looks pretty good but it does look kinda like something you'd see on a civic with a fart can lol. oh and try to ignore all of the bugs stuck to my bumper cover,

    That is a Factory WS6 Hood my friend, and you stole it from the guy for what you paid for it.

    Well that's pretty sweet. I knew it would even be a good deal for an aftermarket one but even better for a $2000 hood. A buddy of mine said he thought it was a factory hood but I wanted to get more opinions. Thanks for the help.
