    Agreed. I'm sure there are gains, but they're not realistically measured, and I sure as heck didn't buy it for the gains, I bought it for the looks.

    Actually it's functionality is just a big pita... detail engine bay, drive for 30 minutes, have lots of dust and dirt get shot right back into engine bay. I actually put tape over it when I take road trips, i.e. fbody gathering...

    yep that definetly does look weird lol..

    btw, i finally got my tru fiber hood on today!! I love it! Only issue I have is it's not blended so from like 75% of the angles in the sun it looks a darker shade of silver.. no big deal to me though, I spent enough money on that hood, don't feel like paying to get it blended. at least not yet

    I haven't read the entire thread, so my apologies if the link has already been posted. That's a WS6 hood made from carbon fiber.

    I like that, think it'd look good painted to match with the raised portions left unpainted...

    No sponsors, there are two companies that make them, I know one was C-wings, but I think they may have gone under, probably due to the exponential rising costs of CF. Ebay is where I got mine... Thank god I got lucky and it worked out! I was scared to death that I was going to get a $500 piece of crap.
