FINAL PRODUCTION PHASE!!! New "SHOWSTOPPER" Heat Extractor Hood

We are in the final production phase of our new Showstopper heat extractor hood. The cowl is 1" taller than stock and allows heat to escape from the rear of the hood. Each scoop on the top of the hood can function as heat extractors as well. Each vent is finished off with a machined billet vent to really set it a part from the rest. Here are a couple teaser photos. We hope to have some installed photos soon.

I'm not trying to be an asshole, because the quality of the hood looks really good and I know your company does fantastic work, but why make a hood that basically already exists in a few different fashions (I'm thinking of a similar VIS hood, I believe)? What sets this apart?

I don't know, but the vents look like just throwen in there. They don't follow the radius of hood line.

I think it looks pretty dang good personally.

Plus you have Eric @ MPD1 and Showstoppers in a joint venture, that's a win win!!

You have the option of not cutting the vents open if you have a daily driver. The open vents are more for people who don't drive their car everyday or in inclement weather.

Loved the prototype... I think it was the vents (too bad they changed)... need to see one finished (painted and on)
