    Fiberglass hood.

    Does anyone know the weight of a stock 99 Z28 hood. I know the weight of a fiberlass hood. What is the weight savings for drag race purposes?

    not exactly sure how much weight it will save you, but i found it much easier to lift up my new fiber glass ram air hood as opposed to the stock one i used to have. definitely no notice in performance tho
